THE BENEFITS OF PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy can benefit any animal in any situation, whether it be your beloved family Labrador, or your elite eventing thoroughbred. As an owner, providing routine physio for your animal can ensure that they are both working to their fullest potential, and as happy and comfortable as they can possibly be – a small repayment for the joy they bring us.

 

Some of the benefits physiotherapy can bring include,

  • Rehabilitation from injury or surgery

  • Maintaining joint mobility

  • Improving muscle function and movement

  • Reducing pain

  • Management of chronic conditions

  • Reducing the risk of injuries

  • Optimising performance for competition

  • Providing relaxation and reducing stress

INITIAL CONSULTATION & SESSION

This will be your first session, and will consist of a full assessment, including walk and trot up, full body analysis and range of motion assessment, and a discussion about the patient's history and any specific areas of concern. Following this, they will receive a full physiotherapy treatment based on what we find during the assessment.

HORSES - Approx 90 min
SMALL ANIMALS - Approx 60 min

FOLLOW-UP SESSIONS

All follow-up sessions will consist of a full treatment, including manual therapy and electrotherapy, dependent on the patient's specific requirements. This session will include a discussion and session report providing you with a targeted rehabilitation programme, and any exercises that may be useful moving forward.

HORSES - Approx 60 min
SMALL ANIMALS - Approx 40-60 min

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM YOUR SESSION

Each physiotherapy session will be tailored to target the patient’s individual requirements, but you can expect the following to happen in each session.

  • A discussion about your animal’s history and aims, and any progress or drawbacks that may have occurred between sessions

  • An assessment of your animals gait, joint mobility and muscle function

  • A range of manual therapies, from deep tissue release to joint mobilisation and stretching

  • Application of appropriate electrotherapies targeted to individual requirements

  • A follow up discussion about exercises programmes and management changes that you can apply moving forward to provide the best possible care for your animal
