Equine

Has your horses behaviour changed?

Are they struggling to maintain contact?

Have they started bucking under saddle?

Do they resist having the saddle put on?

Has their performance deteriorated?

Have they had a recent injury?

If the answer to any of these questions is YES then please contact me or your vet as your horse may benefit from physiotherapy.

How long will the visit last?

Please allow 60-90 minutes for each session.

How should I prepare for a visit?

Please ensure your horse is clean and dry before treatment.

Can I ride after a visit?

Please allow 48 hours off ridden work after a visit as there may be some delayed muscle soreness. (NB. Feel free to ride before a visit but please nothing too sweaty!).

How much is a full assessment, treatment and exercise prescription?

£60

10% discount for 3 or more horses on a single visit.

 

Canine

Is your dog struggling to get up, climb stairs or get in the car?

Have they recently had orthopaedic surgery?

Are they becoming snappy, grumpy or seem depressed?

Do they struggle keeping up with other dogs?

Does your dog lick, chew or bite at their legs or back? 

If the answer to any of these questions is YES please contact me or your vet as your dog may benefit from physiotherapy. I often hear people say their dog is 'getting a bit stiff' or 'just getting old.'  These phrases indicate that there has been a noticeable change and that pain may be present.

How long will a visit last?

Please allow 45-60 minutes for each session.

How much is a full assessment, treatment and exercise prescription?

£50

 

Feline

Is your cat struggling to jump up or struggling to reach high spots?

Has your cat recently had orthopaedic surgery?

Is your cat spending more time sleeping?

Has their coat become scruffy as they are grooming less?

Has your cats nails become overgrown?

Are they more irritable and spending more time alone? 

If the answer to any of these questions is YES, please contact me or your vet as your cat may benefit physiotherapy.

 

How long will a visit last?

Please allow 45-60 minutes for each session.

Will my cat sit still enough for treatment?

Although some cats aren't as cooperative as dogs with a little bit of patience treatment is possible with great results. If your cat is anxious or 'flighty' please talk to your Vet about supplements that may help them relax through treatment.

How much is a full assessment, treatment and exercise prescription?

Other Animals

Although my work is predominantly with horses, dogs and cats I am happy to visit other animals (large or small) with prior discussion.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy plays a vital role under the umbrella of Veterinary Physiotherapy and is as much a part of my tool kit as the manual therapy I offer. I often refer my clinets for hydrotherapy in addition to Physiotherapy. Due to the many beneficial properties of water, it can  reducing force on joints and aid in:

  • Building Muscle

  • Increasing range of motion to the joints 

  • Re-education of gait

I am very fortunate to have found Motion Pet Rehabilitation who are local to myself and can offer both Pool and Underwater Treadmill in their facilities. I have been working closely with Motion since they have opened and as a team we work closely together to offer an individually tailored multimodal approach to your pets treatment.

I can often be found in the treatment room at

Motion where I offer Physiotherapy if you feel

the home environment is not suitable.

I am currently studying towards my Level 3 Diplomla in Hydrotherapy.
