About this Research Topic
Spinal cord injury, from fibrocartilagenous embolism to vertebral fracture, comprises one of the most common neurological disorders in dogs and cats and contributes to significant mobility problems in veterinary patients. This in turn has marked effects on quality of life as well as potential negative effects on the human animal bond. Veterinary neurorehabilitation is in its infancy but much like human neurorehabilitation, it relies on the integration of neurology, neurosurgery, physical medicine and social sciences to be successful.
The focus of this Research Topic is on clinical applications of traditional and novel rehabilitative techniques but not to the exclusion of investigative neuroscience and translational research that explores interdisciplinary applications such as functional neuroimaging and robotics. Submissions that focus on integrative therapeutics and/or objective outcomes measurements are encouraged.
