Rotation Exercise – Physical Therapy for Orphan Annie


This is Orphan Annie, a six week old kitten who’s unable to walk. Annie was found with limited mobility in her back right leg and no mobility in her back left leg. And she doesn’t have any signs of injury, so no breaks and no fractures. So while we’re unaware of what caused Annie’s condition, we do have hope that she’ll be able to regain mobility through physical therapy exercises. Here you can see Annie receiving her rotation exercise treatment. This is a therapy that is meant to teach her the full range of motion that she has in her legs and to help her rebuild muscle memory so that she can be prepared to walk again. This is just one of several physical therapies that Annie is receiving every day to help get her on a path for success.
