Veterinary Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation

About Us

All About Us

Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation of Homer Glen (VSMR) is a veterinary specialty hospital focused solely on state-of-the-art veterinary care in the field of sports medicine and rehabilitation.

Our experienced team, headed by Dr. Amber Ihrke, Diplomate of the American College of Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation (ACVSMR), consists of licensed veterinary technicians who have post-graduate training in physical rehabilitation. The VSMR medical team is dedicated to a collaborative approach with your primary care veterinarian to implement an effective treatment strategy.

The team at VSMR develops a customized treatment plan based on your pet’s diagnosis, abilities, and limitations. Rehabilitative therapies decrease pain, improve healing, enhance performance, prevent compensatory injuries, and restore functional ability, thus allowing our pets to maintain an excellent quality of life. Physical rehabilitation is available for pets following orthopedic surgery or neurosurgery for the treatment of chronic pain, athletic and traumatic injuries, as well as age-related diseases, and weight management.

Members of our client service team are available by phone, email, and online Monday –Saturday to answer your questions and provide you with more information. Many pet insurance plans cover animal rehabilitation services. Please contact your pet insurance company to see if your pet has this coverage.
