Animals suffering from or recovering from neurological conditions have specialized needs, which can include some of the following: pain, muscle spasm, muscle weakness, and loss of voluntary movement of the limbs or lack of sensation to the limbs. A multi-modal approach to benefit the patient will include modalities to target pain and re-education of neural pathways. Common conditions treated include fibrocartilagenous embolism (FCE), degenerative myelopathy (DM), intervertebral disk disease, and brachial plexus injury.
“The Rollins Center offers animals the same state of the art rehabilitation services that I use in my career as a professional athlete. Our services can assist patients with post-surgical recovery; prevention of further injury; recovery and healing of muscle strains, ligament ruptures, joint sprains and bone fractures; assuaging of patient anxiety or stress; reduction of muscle tightness or spasm; management of chronic conditions including arthritis and degenerative disease; promotion of flexibility and range of motion; weight management; and other beneficial therapies.” -Jimmy Rollins, All Star shortstop for the Philadelphia Phillies
