VCA Bering Sea is excited to offer Rehabilitation services with Dr. Heather Krellner. Rehabilitation therapy involves using non-invasive techniques to aid in the treatment of acute and chronic conditions. These techniques include massage, therapeutic exercise, cryotherapy, neuromuscular stimulations, cold therapy, acupuncture and hydrotherapy.
The goal of rehabilitation is to improve the patient’s mobility and quality of life. Rehabilitation therapy can improve range or motion, help promote normal functions, alleviate pain, and speed healing.
