Joy Hammer, VT: Rehab Technician

Joy has been in the veterinary field since the year 2000,working as a veterinary technician as well as a receptionist. Joy is very passionate about what she does and cares for all of the patients as they were her own.

Joy became interested in physical therapy in 2014 when she adopted an inoperable paralyzed Dachshund from the practice she was working at. Joy decided to take Coco to physical therapy and became a client at Horse and Hound. Coco & Joy went thru the 6 week program here at HnHPT and a lot of home exercise and care. Coco has since regained all function in her hind end and is considered 100% recovered.

Joy has since been looking for a chance to work with us and learn more about canine physical therapy, so when the recent opportunity came up, Joy jumped on the chance to send in her resume. We were sure to scoop Joy into our practice due to the compassion and knowledge base she exuded while she was our client with Coco.

Jennifer Brooks, PT,MEd,CCRP,CERP, Owner:
In the year 2000 Jennifer Brooks, PT, decided to combine her love of horses with her professional skills as a Physical Therapist. She began studying equine, and later canine, anatomy, kinesiology (the study of movement) and equine pathologies. Much of her continuing educational pursuits in equine PT have involved understanding the benefits of modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, heat and cold, low level light LASER, electrical stimulation along with manual therapeutic interventions, that are commonly used on humans in clinical settings, with thoughts of “How can I utilize these proven methods that help humans, to help heal dogs, horses and other mammals?”
