What is Veterinary Physiotherapy?
Veterinary Physiotherapists work in adjunction with your veterinarian to provide suitable and beneficial treatment programmes; aiming to reduce pain, encourage correct gait patterns and restore muscle control and function.
We use a range of manual therapies to include:
Electrotherapies can be used to provide pain relief, assist with tissue repair, reduce swelling and aid towards neuro-muscular stimulation.
Remedial exercise programmes are bespoke to the individual patient and will be tailored accordingly. We offer practical and realistic remedial exercise programmes that are both affective and achievable.
