Dogs in physical rehabilitation


  1. Animal-Assisted Exercise Therapy: Animals can be involved in exercise therapy sessions to motivate and engage patients. For example, walking or exercising with dogs can encourage individuals to be more active, improve their mobility, and enhance their overall physical fitness.

  2. Canine-Assisted Rehabilitation: Dogs can assist in physical rehabilitation by participating in activities such as fetching objects, providing support during gait training, or aiding in upper body exercises. Their presence can increase motivation and provide emotional support during the rehabilitation process.

  3. Hydrotherapy with Animals: The natural buoyancy and therapeutic properties of water, combined with the presence of animals, can assist in improving mobility, strength, and overall physical function.



It's important to note that incorporating animals into physical therapy and rehabilitation requires proper training, safety protocols, and guidance from healthcare professionals. Animal involvement should be tailored to the individual needs and goals of the patient to ensure a safe and effective therapy experience.
