How Can Physiotherapy Help My Pet?

The main goal of physiotherapy is to find and treat areas of pain, stiffness, weakness or dysfunction that could be possibly affect your pet’s health. An extensive assessment of your pet’s history, gait analysis, range of motion, testing of joints, palpation and functional movements testing is conducted to check for asymmetries and restrictions. Following this, a treatment plan is drafted, which involves setting goals together and exploring ways of accomplishing them.

The number of sessions needed is determined after the initial consultation as each pet is different and has a different response to treatment. Initially, a more intensive treatment approach is usually required after surgery or injury. Physiotherapy is a great way of ensuring your pet’s smoother road to recovery.

  • Soft Tissue and Joint Mobilisations
  • Trigger Point Therapy
  • Individualised Exercise Rehabilitation
  • Laser Therapy
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Stimulation
