How can physiotherapy help my pet?

Physiotherapy works to find and treat areas of pain, stiffness, weakness or dysfunction that could be affecting your pet’s health.

An assessment is performed which includes a thorough history taking, gait analysis, range of motion testing of joints, palpation and functional movement testing to check for asymmetries and restrictions.

A treatment plan will then be developed, setting goals together and creating a unique plan of how to achieve them.

How many sessions will be required?

This will be decided after the initial consultation as each animal varies and responds to treatment differently.

Typically after surgery or injury and in more severe chronic cases a more intensive approach is required initially.

Physiotherapy can be a great option for your pet, whether they are cats, dogs, horses or even anything else!
