What is Veterinary Physiotherapy?

Veterinary Physiotherapy uses a range of assessment techniques to map together a picture. From the way an animal moves to the feel of their muscles and joints, this information can be used to formulate a clinically reasoned treatment plan to:

  • Relieve pain

  • Reduce inflammation

  • Improve performance

  • Reduce the risk of injury 

Veterinary Physiotherapy can be used for a number of reasons but most visits fall within the  following categories:

  • Chronic musculoskeletal conditions

  • Neurological conditions

  • Post Surgical recovery

  • Maintenance sessions

 
 

What animals can benefit from physiotherapy?

What does treatment involve?

After a full assessment at each visit, treatment is made up of three aspects : Manual therapy, Electrotherapy and Remedial Exercise.

 

Manual Therapy 

Manual therapy is the back bone of physiotherapeutic treatment and can be performed as a stand alone treatment.

  • Massage

I use a range of techniques for varying effects on fascia and muscles.

  • Stretching

Helps improve muscle tone and prevent injury.

Electrotherapy

Electrotherapy machines are a great addition to the toolbox of physiotherapy. I currently use the following equipment to help relieve pain, increase circulation and build muscle:

  • Hot/Cold

  • Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy

  • TENS

  • NMES

  • Low Level Laser

  • H-Wave

Remedial Exercise

This is where you come in! 

I will give you homework to help target any issues found.

This will be made up off:

  • Controlled Exercise

  • Management Advice

All exercises will be demonstrated when prescribed.

Kinesiology Taping

I have also attended a course ran by RockTape UK on kinesiology taping for horse and rider and I incorporate this within my treatments when appropriate. RockTape can help lessen pain and prolong the effects of manual treatment.
