Chronic and intense uncontrolled acute pain in animals generates emotional concern for many owners. Providing optimal care can be frustrating as multiple drugs are used, individualised dosing regimens need to be determined and a pain free outcome is difficult to achieve and must be monitored and prescribed by a vet. Pain management is done in collaboration with the referring vet. A plan is then formulated to manage the pain. The owner is educated about pain assessment and instructed to start a pain diary.
Pain modulation is carried out by vet rehabbers by encouraging natural healing and improve functioning. Restoring posture by decreasing pain and muscle spasms with soft tissue techniques.
