Passive Range of Motion Exercises – Video

PROM or Passive range of motion exercises are an important part of canine physical therapy following a cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) injury. PROM exercises are useful whether your dog has undergone surgery such as a TTA, TPLO, traditional repair, etc. or if you’ve chosen to do Conservative Management. The goal of PROMs are to increase the movement and flexibility within the joint by stretching the tendons and muscles in a careful, controlled manner.

Dr. James St. Clair of TopDog Health and Rehabilitation demonstrates how to perform Passive Range of Motion Exercises, and explains their importance with regard to maintaining range of motion within the dog knee joint.

    Wow! Thanks so much for posting this video! My dog is a few weeks post op for an ACL repair and we received very limited information on how to do PROMs. This quick video really did the trick to help get me on the right path :)

      Hi There,

      Glad you found the video to be a useful tool. What type of surgery did your dog have??

      Cheers to a quick and successful recovery!
