PHYSIOTHERAPY

SMALL ANIMALS

Our small furries may lead a comfortable life alongside us which is often what makes if difficult for us as owners to recognise chronic pain or locomotor compensations that arise from spontaneous pain due to injury or deteriorating conditions that accompany ageing. Those recovering or looking for alternatives to surgical intervention look to physiotherapy as a means of non invasive hollistic and often long term managment which, if done routinely and correctly can improve if not prolong an individuals quality of life. Physiotherapy is a team effort and works more effectively with cooperation from both owner and vet.

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 impairements or pain require managment on a daily basis.
