REHABILITATION AND PERFORMANCE OPTIMISATION
Veterinary physiotherapy is a science based profession, which takes a holistic approach to each patient, by performing a thorough clinical history taking, examination and functional assessment to guide the choice of an optimal treatment plan.
Laura is highly skilled in a variety of different treatment techniques. After assessment, typically a combination of the following techniques are used to help any problems identified: massage, myofascial release, joint mobilisations or manipulations, stretches, electrotherapies and remedial exercise.
Veterinary physiotherapy can be used alongside veterinary care to help the treatment or long-term management of many musculoskeletal or neurological conditions and injuries. It can assist rehabilitation of the animal, with the aims of reducing pain, improving movement, and restoring normal muscle control and function.
Veterinary physiotherapy may also be used for performance development 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.
Laura strives to deliver the highest standard of veterinary physiotherapy care to both equine and canine patients by linking a strong foundation of scientific knowledge with clinical practice and keeping up to date with recent advances in scientific research.
