Wolfe Kinetic Technique®
WKT® or Wolfe Kinetic Technique® is a gentle manual neuromuscular re-education technique developed by Dr. Wolfe. This technique provides input to the dog’s nervous system to cause changes in movement patterns so that the dog can learn to move more normally and with less pain and chance of re-injury.
Cutting Edge Techniques and Research
Whether it is administering dry needling techniques to release the healing properties of the body or applying modalities like infrared/cold laser, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation, The K9 Body Shop staff applies cutting edge techniques to promote healing and treat injured tissues. We also conduct ongoing research and keep up with evidence based physical therapy practices to stay in the forefront of this ever-changing profession.
Hydrotherapy can be an optimum form of exercise, because it provides buoyancy to offset the effects of gravity. Many debilitated canines find that they can move freely and painlessly in water when movement on land is impossible.
It is our mission to bring educated, experienced, qualified professional physical rehabilitation to the animal world;
improving the quality of life and positive psychological effects for pets and their owners.
