Adelaide Canine Rehabilitation Centre

New Approaches to Canine Care & Pain Management


As Seen On TV’s Totally Wild Show




Rehabilitation treatment involves a multi-modal approach to maintain muscle mass, improve coordination & balance, as well as reduce pain & improve your pet’s quality of life post-surgery or in their later years. The world of regenerative & rehabilitation sports medicine is an ever evolving one and our team’s approach is based upon the University of Tennessee’s cutting edge Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner postgraduate programme.

Our Rehabilitation Team





Dr Chris Lee is currently training to become a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) in preparation for the launch of our new Canine Rehabilitation Centre later on in 2018.We also have a qualified Canine Myofunctional Therapy Practitioner on our team who has qualified at the National College of Traditional Medicine as well as another team member studying to become a CCRP.
