Physical Rehabilitation in Waltham

After thoughtful consideration, we have decided to close the Physical Rehabilitation service at the MSPCA-Angell West on June 2, 2023. All other services at our Waltham location will continue to operate. Moving forward, we will no longer book new physical rehabilitation evaluations, but we will continue to provide physical rehabilitation for our existing clients through June 2, 2023.

This was not an easy decision to make, but we believe we can serve more clients and patients with these changes. The service closure will allow Angell to renovate the Physical Rehabilitation space for clinical, exam room and surgical use to help meet the increasing need for specialized veterinary services.

For those seeking ongoing physical rehabilitation care, we recommend the following facilities in the area:

Canine and feline physical rehabilitation, is much like physical therapy for humans. We adapt human physical therapy techniques to increase function and mobility, reduce pain, speed recovery from injury or surgery, and increase the quality of life. As in humans, canine and feline physical rehabilitation is used to treat a wide variety of orthopedic and neurological conditions. Whether your dog or cat is recovering from an injury, cross training, or facing mobility issues, they can benefit from our comprehensive and cutting-edge care.

Amy Straut, DVM, Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT) and Jennifer Palmer, DVM, CCRT lead our Physical Rehabilitation team. Services are located at our MSPCA-Angell West location at 293 Second Avenue in Waltham. Our spacious facility adjoins our MSPCA-Angell West hospital and features two AquaPaws treadmills as well as a pool with massage and resistance jets. In addition to hydrotherapy, we offer therapeutic land exercise, manual therapy techniques, low-level laser therapy and consultation and fitting of assistive devices.
