Physical therapy is an important part of recovery from injury and surgery. Range of motion exercise and stretching are a gentle activity to help the joint to move while carefully exercised and supported to help the joint heal and maintain normal motion which is essential for recovery. Your dog may not always be the most cooperative so you may need a helper to distract your dog. It is best to perform the exercise with a willing dog who is relaxed.
