Canine Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can be of benefit to working dogs, sporting dogs and your family pet.

 

If your canine friend suffers from arthritis, or has been diagnosed with a musculoskeletal condition, we can aid towards creating a treatment programme to ensure functional mobility and comfort is restored as quickly and efficiently as possible.

 

Canine physiotherapy has a plethora of advantages

  • Pain relief

  • Pre and post-operative rehabilitation

  • Encourages  

 

Canine physiotherapy assists with the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Our aim as physiotherapists is to improve, restore or maintain the canine patient’s functional mobility.

Will my dog benefit from physiotherapy?

If your dog presents with any of the following conditions, physiotherapy may be of benefit.

  • Hip dysplasia

  • Elbow Dysplasia

  • Cranial Cruciate Disease

  • Osteoarthritis 

  • Fracture Repair

  • Patella luxation

  • Facilitation of wound healing/repair

 

Prior to treatment a thorough static and dynamic assessment will be carried out on your dog to ensure the primary dysfunction is treated, resulting in effective and focused treatment.

We use a range of treatment modalities, to include manual therapy, electrotherapies and stretching regimes to create a bespoke programme designed specifically for your dogs needs.
