Rehabilitation is important to completely restore health following an injury.
Physiotherapy that improves strength, coordination, balance and stability may also compensate for the reduced function of a joint or body and give an animal a better quality of life.
Several of the rehabilitation treatments and regimens also promote health and prevent injury by increasing strength, range of motion and endurance, and help to keep an animal fit. Many of these forms of exercise are also recommended for animals that need to lose weight.
