Moki's 1st Physical Therapy Session (Animal Rehab) at Scout's House

Moki had his first physical therapy session (animal rehabilitation session) at Scout's House last Friday. The session went really well and a number of therapies were tried on Moki due to his very unique condition. Since the cause of Moki's condition is unknown, Scout's House cannot map out a normal physical therapy/animal rehab plan for Moki. Like most things when it comes to Moki's care, Scout's House's treatment plan for Moki will be based on a process of trial and error.
With that said here are some pictures of the different therapies that were tried on Moki last week...

Manual therapy techniques:
Scout's House preformed a number of manual therapy techniques on Moki as is shown in the picture below. If you would like to learn more about manual therapy techniques please click this link: Manual Therapy Techniques Scout's House.

In this next photograph Scout's House is preforming a technique known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation. To learn more about neuromuscular electrical stimulation, please click the following link: Scout's House Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation.

In this photograph, Scout's House is preforming a technique known as low-level laser therapy. You can learn more about low-level laser therapy by clicking on the following link: Scout's House Low-Level Laser Therapy.

And of course Scout's House incorporated some hydrotherapy into Moki's treatment plan. For those of you unfamiliar with the benefits of hydrotherapy, you can learn more about hydrotherapy by clicking the following link: Scout's House Hydrotherapy.



With that said, our session finally came to and end with a new homework assignment needing to be completed every night this week. For five to ten minutes a night we are to preform the exercise shown in the video below. This exercise will help to strengthen Moki's inner thigh muscles, which in turn should help to get Moki walking better again!


So that's were we are currently at. None of the therapies were painful and Moki tolerated all of his therapy treatments very well. So well in fact that his therapists wished that all their patients were as good about accepting their therapy treatments as Moki. It's still a little to early to see any real results, but we'll let you know as soon as we do...
P.S.
Moki now has a standing physical therapy/rehab appointment on Fridays for the next two months, so continue to look for weekly updates on his progress...

Hi Peter,

I tried clicking on all the links myself and they all opened for me...so I am not sure which link you are referring to. Can you please provide me with a little bit more information as to which link you were referring to so that I can provide you with the web address for that particular link. Thanks!

Looks like you are getting great therapy. We are purring and praying for you to get strong and healthy. Thanks for inviting us to join you on Facebook but Mom won't let us have a Facebook account. She can be so unfair sometimes.

Hang in there pal, we are all in your corner.

Harry and Fiona
