How it works

Rehabilitation is an emerging field in veterinary medicine. Dr. Martinson is renown in the industry for her talent and leadership. She is fond of the saying “medicine adds days to life, rehab adds life to days.” Rehabilitation can do incredible and transformative things for dogs – it can decrease pain, improve healing, restore functional abilities, enhance performance, and in general improve your pet’s quality of life. It is a critical tool in recovery from injuries and surgeries, along with pain management, treatment of osteoarthritis, and more. Every pet’s treatment plan is unique, and is custom made based on their specific challenges and goals.
