Veterinary Physiotherapy

Why Veterinary Physiotherapy?

When working in conjunction with your veterinarian, Physiotherapy techniques can help to:​

🌟 Reduce pain

🌟 Rehabilitate from injury/surgery

🌟 Improve muscle function/movement

🌟 Manage chronic conditions

🌟 Maintain competition/working animals at peak physical condition

🌟 Reduce the risk of injury

 

As a Veterinary Physiotherapist I will carry out a full static and dynamic assessment of your animal and, using clinical reasoning, I will decide on the most appropriate form of treatment, depending on the individual situation.

 

Services include: 

🌟 Manual therapies - e.g. massage techniques

🌟 Electrotherapies - e.g. laser/therapeutic ultrasound

🌟 Remedial exercise programmes

🌟 Management Advice

I am currently studying for an MSc in Veterinary Physiotherapy, and as of September 2020 I will be qualified and insured to practice as a Veterinary Physiotherapist. Until then I will only be offering services I am fully qualified and insured to carry out (please see the 'Services' page for more information). However, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me!
