Mobility; a multi-disciplined approach

Improving Mobility.
Does human intervention hinder or help?

A leading panel of experts in small animal physiotherapy and rehabilitation, surgery, nutrition, and human obesity, met at the Iams Clinical Nutrition Symposium on February 10th 2006 in Montreux, Switzerland. At the centre of the discussion was how human intervention can positively influence mobility in companion animals, and how dogs could actually help improve the lifestyle of overweight humans to help facilitate weight loss and improve human mobility.

Key findings from the expert panel include;

  • up to 44% of dogs and up to 35% of cats are overweight or obese
  • it is estimated that as many as 20% of dogs suffer from osteoarthritis and 34% of cats suffer from joint problems which can affect their mobility
  • weight loss is an important factor for improving mobility
  • cats and dogs are predisposed to trauma of the limbs due their lifestyle
  • over the last 10 years there has been dramatic advancement in surgical management techniques to improve mobility
  • total hip and elbow replacements are available to give pain free mobility
  • animals with orthopaedic disorders can get into a vicious cycle of decreased daily exercise and increased weight gain
  • combining weight loss and physiotherapy significantly improves existing lameness and mobility
  • owners are very important for any implementation of physiotherapy and rehabilitation regimes to help improve patientsÂ’ mobility
  • the last two decades has seen a rapid, world-wide spread of mobility-related diseases in humans, even in relatively poor countries
  • mobility of humans has been reduced due to changes in our lifestyle and eating habits
  • dogs offer an unique opportunity to help encourage overweight humans to exercise more and improve their mobility
