PHYSIOTHERAPY

SMALL ANIMALS

Physiotherapy is available to all animals: those recovering from injury or disease as well as those who just go for daily walks. Physiotherapy offers a 'whole' or 'complete' approach to treating an animal; looking at movement, previous injury, diet, goals and aims among others. Physiotherapy helps manage pain, improve range of motion, increase neuromuscular coordination and many more. Physiotherapy brings with it an awareness of how to manage and improve the current state of health; you are then able to manage your own animals healthcare independently with greater and  long-lasting results.

The initial session is vital for collecting the animals medical history and completing a full static and dynamic assessment as well as treatment and a 1-2 week exercise regime for the owners to follow up. It is advised that the owner should ask their vet before booking if this a suitable option for your animal.

Current treatments on offer include:

  • Physio-enhanced walking

  • Manual therapy

  • Kinesiotaping

  • Electrotherapy

  • Magnetic therapy

  • Individual rehabilitation programmes

EQUINE

With all that we ask our equine companions to do sometimes they too require assistance to ensure all that we do is not causing pain or restriction that may alter and reduce their performance. For those returning to work after an injury or period of rest, designing an appropriate rehabilitative programme is vital to ensure full recovery and reduce the possibility of injury. As with small animals this is a team effort and will show the best results with help and understanding from the owner, vet, farrier and riding instructor.

REHABILITATION PROGRAMMES

Whether your animal is recovering from illness or injury, a competitive athlete, a geriatric patient or you are seeking advice to maintain their current level of health and fitness a rehabilitative programme provides a structured set of exercises easy enough for the owner to include alongside their animals regular routine. Each programme is tailored to the individual patients condition and current level of fitness taking into account their diet, exercise regime, medication, current or previous injuries as well as the owners needs and limitations. 

Setting goals and targets can help monitor and track the patients progress much like human physiotherapy where exercises can be altered when the patient reaches a plateau or is ready to be challenged further.

Rehabilitative exercises are particularly important for patients with chronic conditions where long term impairments or pain require management on a daily basis.
