Condition management - Many horses and dogs have specific conditions which require management throughout their lifetimes which can be supported through manual therapy and conditioning.
Pain relief - Traumatic or insidious onset events occur therefore vet physio can provide therapy which will aid natural pain relief.
Rehabilitation - Post injury, muscle weakness and loss of core strength can occur, therefore exercises can be provided to aid your animal return to health.
Pre and Post Surgery - Supporting your animal both before and after their operation will help them return to health much faster.
Maintenance - Regular maintenance sessions can aid your horse and dog feel great in their everyday life.
Performance enhancing - If your horse or dog feels great, they will perform much better both in every day life and in competition.
Massage is a great way to increase blood to the tissues, flushing out any excess waste, it also can increase tissue flexibility and reduce spasms. Natural endorphins are released making your dog or horse feel great!
Stretching lengthens tissues and re-align the fibres to improve function making animals much more comfortable.
Joint range of motion can be used as a therapy and also a tool to monitor the condition of specific joints. It helps to lubricate the joint which aids comfort. Eventually normal range can be re-established with repetition to a restricted joint.
There are numerous electrotherapy's which can be used to promote tissue healing, and for pain relief. Currently provided by Hot2Trot are Pulse Magnetic Field Therapy (Pulse Mag), Laser, Tens, Heat and Ice.
A range of rehab exercises including using your dog or horse's own body can aid to build muscle to support joints and/or core strength. These exercises can be built up gradually to incorporate gymnasiums such as bending cones and pole work.
All appointments are at pre-arranged times, subject to availability, and will involve the Veterinary Physiotherapist either coming to your home (canine) or yard (equine).
