Whether you were referred to us by your veterinarian or have found us on your own, we welcome you and your pet to the Center for Veterinary Pain Management and Rehabilitation.
Before getting treatment at our center, ask your veterinarian about rehabilitation for your pet. While we don’t require a veterinarian’s referral, a written referral is very helpful in evaluating the problem and determining the right treatment. We like to work closely with you and your veterinarian to identify and treat the pain or mobility issues your pet faces. We recommend that when you schedule a consultation with us, you ask your veterinarian to fill out our New Patient Referral Form located at the bottom of this page. Then bring the referral form, along with your pet’s records and radiographs, with you to the consultation.
During this first consultation, Dr. Rick Wall will discuss with you the pain management and rehabilitation treatments appropriate to your pet’s condition. Your pet’s medical records and radiographs can assist him in determining the causes of pain and restricted mobility. After Dr. Wall’s evaluation, we create an individualized treatment plan to address and remedy your pet’s specific condition.
Canine & Feline Pain Management In The Woodlands
It is now well accepted within the veterinary community that pain, both acute and chronic, can lead to patient suffering and decrease in quality of life. At the Center for Veterinary Pain Management and Rehabilitation, we aggressively address pain with both pharmaceutical therapies and techniques in non-surgical rehabilitation including myofascial trigger point therapy. We use pain examination techniques to first localize and identify the patient’s pain. Once we know the location of the pain, we then use diagnostic tests to determine its cause—the so called “pain generators”.
Pain is complex, and the more established pain is, the more difficult it is to manage. This complexity often results in a failure to recognize and treat the cause of the pain, which produces a cycle of chronic pain, suffering and decreased quality of life. A complex problem requires a complex solution.
