REHABILITATION AND PERFORMANCE OPTIMISATION
Providing specialist veterinary physiotherapy care and delivering a high standard of rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement for both equine and canine patients. Wether you have an equine or canine companion or athlete, veterinary physiotherapy can be of huge benefit for the health of every animal regardless of age or discipline.
Veterinary physiotherapy provides a holistic and clinically reasoned approach, using 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 may be used to enhance and develop athletic performance, reduce risk of injury and improve recovery post-competition. Furthermore, veterinary physiotherapy may be used alongside veterinary treatment to enhance the rehabilitation or long-term management of acute or chronic musculoskeletal or neurological conditions and injuries.
Veterinary physiotherapy treatments are bespoke to meet individual patient requirements. Not only does veterinary physiotherapy focus on treating identified areas of pain, dysfunction, muscle imbalance and injury, but also takes into consideration the full clinical history, therefore ensuring a safe, effective and progressive return to optimum musculoskeletal and neuromuscular function.
