Our Services

First-Time Patient?

Every patient receives an initial assessment to identify the ailment and plot the best course of treatment. Initial examinations include a general examination, weight analysis, stance analysis, orthopedic evaluation, neurological evaluation, and thermal imaging to develop the rehabilitation program for the patient.

Healing Hearts provides the following physical rehabilitation services:

Preforming ultrasound therapy on a German Shepperd patient

Ultrasound Therapy

High frequency sound waves create mechanical energy through vibrations which stimulate the molecules of tissue to compress/decompress, creating heat and stimulating/enhancing tissue healing, decreasing pain, muscle spasms, and increases collagen, blood flow and metabolic rates.

Acupressure and Traditional Chinese Medicine

One method of ancient Chinese therapy, Gua Sha involves motion over the skin that helps with circulation, collagen production, and lymph drainage.

Therapeutic Exercices

Therapeutic exercise involves designing movements and physical activities that restore function and flexibility, improve strength and gait, and decrease pain.

Gait Analysis and Assessment

Gait Analysis and Assessment helps in understanding animal locomotion, and can be imperative to diagnosing numerous musculoskeletal and neurologic conditions.


Using specialized tools like therapeutic elastic tape to improve movement dynamics and awareness of areas of the body with neurological defects by increasing proprioception. This reduces pain, improves blood and lymphatic drainage, and supports joints and muscles.


The application of cold over an injury, typically used to relieve pain, increase circulation, promote relaxation, increase tissue extensibility, and minimize inflammation.

Customized Treatment Programs

All patients receive an initial examination to identify the best course of treatment. Treatment plans are highly customizable to provide the best likelihood of rehabilitation.


The application of heat over an injury, thermotherapy is highly beneficial in reducing pain and inflammation, and it promotions increased blood flow and metabolic healing.

Performing an electrical stimulation treatment on a patient, like Dr. Ho's machine, provides electrical pulses to the muscles to combat atrophy and provide pain relief.

Electrical Stimulation

Used most commonly in orthopedic or neurological injuries and disease, this treatment uses electrical currents to accelerate healing, slow muscle atrophy and build muscle mass.

Limb Mobilization

Limb mobilization can improve the patient’s range of motion, reduce pain, and improve the mechanics of a joint or limb.

Massaging a blonde french bulldog


Using Swedish massage techniques designed for veterinary use, with long sweeping motions of the hands we can provide stress relief, relaxation, decreased tension in cramped and stiff muscles, improved energy and flexibility, and increase overall physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Performing thermal imaging services on a patient using an infrared camera.

Thermal Imaging

Indicates areas of inflammation, pain and decreased circulation by using a specialized camera that reveals cold/hot zones on the thermal spectrum – to target areas needing attention and to monitor treatment progress.

Stance Analysis **Coming Soon**

By identifying weight distribution across all four limbs, the Stance analysis can prevent future issues by targeting problem areas and assessing lameness.

Preforming magnetic therapy on a patient using an Assisi Loop.

Magnetic Therapy

Using electromagnetic fields, the natural nitric oxide (a natural anti-inflammatory molecule) in the body is stimulated to combat inflammation and enhance healing.

Laser Therapy 

Laser therapy utilizes infrared light to modulate cell functions by use of photo biostimulation, accelerating wound and joint healing, and tissue regeneration, and managing pain and inflammation.

Treadmill Exercise **Coming Soon**

Used for improving muscle strength and range of motion in compromised joints, weight management, and/or athletic conditioning.
