What is Veterinary Physiotherapy?
Veterinary physiotherapy is a science based profession, which takes an holistic approach following veterinary referral.
All sessions begin with an initial assessment which consists of a static and dynamic assessment, palpation, neurological assessment and an introductory massage. Following on from the assessment a treatment plan will be established. Treatment sessions will be made up of a variety of physiotherapeutic techniques.
Manual therapies: massage, myofascial release
Electrotherapies: pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, TENS, neuromuscular electrical stimulation, infrared therapy
Remedial exercise: pole work, lunging, weight shifting
