Okay the next thing you’re going to do once
you finish massaging the legs, keep going, you’re going to work in the area of the sacrum.
This part of the hips is an area that will be held tense. Again the dog will be out of
balance because one side is more painful than the other. So just really working this area,
loosening up those muscles all the way up a little bit onto back, just in a nice circular
motion, really make that area move. And this is going to help ease the tension in the hips.
In the hips, when there is a knee injury will be carrying a lot of the weight, to take the
weight off the knee. You’ll see the dog hold the knee up and then the hip ends up out of
place. So relaxing the sacrum is an important part of getting that leg to work in balance
again. So you want to keep working on the sacral area. Again for about a minute. Oh
now Coco wants side two done, she says you haven’t done it evenly. And that’s an important
thing, is to make sure you’re doing the whole sacral area evenly and by this I mean the
hip area, this whole circle in through here, make sure all those muscles are nice and loose
when you’re finished.
