Each Case Is Different
Each case is different, and physiotherapy has been likened to an art as much as a science. The Animal Physiotherapist employs their advanced knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics, disease and injury pathology and physiology to develop an effective treatment plan. A range of different techniques are employed, including manual therapies such as massage, active and passive stretches; electrotherapies such as H-Wave, Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field, TENS and Interferrential therapies and Therapeutic Ultrasound. These are coupled with remedial exercise prescriptions which actively encourage the animal to recover and provide a vastly improved long-term prognosis.
The Animal Physiotherapist is very much part of a team, made up of the vet, owner, trainers and other paraprofessionals all striving to achieve the very best end results.
