Animal Physiotherapy Techniques
Evidence-based animal physiotherapy treatments have a sound grounding in published scientific studies. Keeping abreast of the latest published thinking on treatment modalities and regimes ensures that your Animal Physiotherapist is always delivering the very best in care.
Helen regularly participates in CPD events, and over the last few months has attended sessions looking at the use of proprioceptive taping and wrapping in Equine Rehabilitation (delivered by Dr Gail Williams), and Electrotherapy in Animal Physiotherapy (Professor Tim Watson). She subscribes to the main veterinary and physiotherapy journals from the UK and USA.
Animal physiotherapy comprises a series of manual therapies, electrotherapies, and remedial exercises to reduce pain and optimise the body's function. These may be employed after injury or illness, as part of a routine management programme for the sports horse or working dog at peak performance, or to manage age related changes.
Each case is dealt with on an individual basis, and a bespoke treatment plan and programme devised. This evolves as your animal improves.
