REHABILITATION AND PERFORMANCE OPTIMISATION
Providing veterinary physiotherapy care for both equine and canine patients. Veterinary physiotherapy is a science based profession, which takes a holistic and clinically reasoned approach to each patient, by performing musculoskeletal and neuromuscular assessment following veterinary referral. Laura approaches each case on an entirely individual basis, with a thorough clinical history taking and examination guiding the choice of an optimal individual treatment plan, aiding towards a safe, effective and progressive return to optimum musculoskeletal and neuromuscular function.
Veterinary Physiotherapy uses manual physiotherapeutic techniques such as massage, myofascial release, passive joint range of motion and stretching, along with electrotherapies and remedial exercise to relieve pain, improve flexibility and joint range of motion and increase muscle strength and endurance and therefore restore and maintain optimum musculoskeletal and neuromuscular function.
Veterinary physiotherapy can be used in conjunction with veterinary treatment to help the treatment or long-term management of many acute or chronic musculoskeletal or neurological conditions and injuries. It can assist rehabilitation of the animal, with the aims of reducing pain, improving movement, and restoring normal musculoskeletal and neuromuscular control and function.
Veterinary physiotherapy may also be used to develop performance of the animal athlete, helping to reduce the risk of injury and improve recovery post-competition, whilst maximising the athletic performance of sporting or working animals.
