How do you know if your animal needs physiotherapy...?

EQUINE PHYSIOTHERAPY

Musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction can cause your horse to perform or behave differently;

  • Poor performance

  • Change in demeanour or behaviour

  • 'Girthy' behaviour

  • Rearing, bucking, bolting

  • Stiffness on one or both reins

  • Inconsistent rein contact

The aims of physiotherapy are to improve and maintain performance, reduce the risk of injury, aid recovery following injury or surgery and promote general well-being.  Physiotherapy can also play a key role in recovery from many common conditions and injuries including;

  • Tendon and ligament injuries

  • ODSP (kissing spines) 

  • Upward fixation of the patella (locking stifles)

  • Osteoarthritis (DJD)

  • Fractures, wounds and impact injuries

If you wish to improve your horse's performance and well-being, are concerned about a change in your horse's behaviour or need help with rehabilitation, please contact me for friendly advice or to book an appointment.

CANINE PHYSIOTHERAPY

Canine athletes and pets alike can benefit from regular physio, helping to reduce pain, improve movement and function and avoid injury.  Signs your dog may need physiotherapy include;

  • Reduced energy or activity, 'slowing down'

  • Change in demeanor or behaviour

  • Aggression

  • Excessive or uncharacteristic vocalisation

  • Difficulty performing tasks (e.g. stair climbing)

​Working alongside your vet, physiotherapy can aid recovery from orthopedic procedures and offer options for conservative management of many common conditions including;

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Elbow and hip dysplasia

  • Bicipital tenosynovitis

  • IVDD

  • Cruciate ligament injury/rupture

  • Patella luxation

Please contact me for more friendly advice and to discuss how physiotherapy can help your dog.

The theme for this season has been weather. We all know that eventers need to get used to it or find a different sport but this season had some real challenges. When in February and March you find yourself enduring snow, bitterly cold temperatures and howling winds whi...
