What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is an evidence based health profession concerned with the assessment and treatment of disability.

How do I know if my animal needs physiotherapy?
Animals can't tell us where their pain is or if they have injured themselves, and they are often clever at hiding their discomfort. Schooling problems, behavioural problems or reduced performance can all be caused by pain, muscle weakness or joint stiffness
Animals, like people respond well to physiotherapy techniques and modalities that may include joint manipulation and mobilisation, massage, specific rehabilitation programmes, electro-therapeutic modalities and exercise programmes. 
 
Physiotherapy intervention can limit the impact of injury and disease processes, optimize healing potential and accelerate return to function and/or performance.
 
Physiotherapy can help animals suffering from a variety of conditions such as back pain, sprains, strains, fractures and sporting  injuries. Physiotherapy can also help restore function following orthopaedic, neurological or general surgery. In the performance animal physiotherapy can improve biomechanics and athletic ability.
