Physical therapy

with 4 comments

We had our session yesterday!  We were at Wizard of Paws in CT.   Nice facility (I liked that it was smaller, it felt cozy) with lots of equipment and even water treadmills. After the initial paperwork I talked to Dr. Gross and told her Tai’s story.  She took her time with both of us so I had a lot of confidence.  Tai was not as confident and was ready to leave when she realized she would have to work 🙂   She did appreciate the positive reinforcement (and treats).

Tai worked her core and back leg on the balls and this purple thing.  She also did a few minutes on the treadmill.    We have a purple thing (OK, it’s called the Infinity, I just checked) at home and Dr. Gross wrote down a couple of exercises for us to do.  We did them tonight but I have to be more diligent about the time we spend.   I have some kind of issue with my own knee and it’s painful for me to be on the floor.   We are a sight on our morning walk with both of us limping, LOL.

Tai hard at work (there are a couple more pix on the Wizard of Paws Facebook page too).  She did great!!  We return in a few weeks for a check and another session.  The doc also recommended the book Without Regret – don’t know if anyone has read it, I plan on picking it up.

  1. That little Tai looks so good doing her workout. I relate to bad knees – perhaps you could use the purple thing on a bed, couch or table since Tai is so little?

    Have fun with the therapy!

  3. She looks great! Ok, she looks like she would rather be napping on the purple thing. . .

  4. Tai you are an inspiration to me! Maybe I’ll hit the treadmill with you. Oh and tasty treats? Hmm that might make exercising worth it!
