SERVICES

How long is each session?

 

Each session will  last approximately 45 minutes to 1 hr.  The first session can take up to 1 to 1.5 hrs as there is often history to be gathered prior to treatment.

 

What happens at each session?

 

Each session begins with gait analysis, followed by red light phototherapy through the whole body, then massage and stretches.  Once this is carried out then any further treatments and exercises are carried out.

Animal Physiotherapy

One definition is:

‘Physiotherapy uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being’.

This is the definition given for physiotherapy within the human medical world, however it still holds true and accurate for the veterinary patient.

 

Following any sort of health issue, whether it is a medical condition, or intervention for an orthopaedic or neurological condition, many veterinary patients are significantly affected with regards to their function. Recumbency (this means lying down or resting) – whether or not it is because of an inability following severe medical illness, pain, or enforced by the surgeon following complex surgery – will certainly lead to muscle wasting and tightness in muscles and joints, if not other complications involving the cardiovascular, respiratory and psychological systems.

 

Animal physiotherapists are trained in both manual techniques, such as acupressure, myofascial release, trigger point release, massage, soft tissue work and joint mobilisation, as well as electrotherapies such as laser, ultrasound, electro stimulation and pulsed electromagnetic therapy.   These are combined with the aim to promote and speed up recovery to good independent function, maintain and prevent secondary preventable complications developing and essentially restore the veterinary patient to good functional status.   Post treatment and when appropriate, a full exercise rehabilitation programme can be written specifically for your animals condition to ensure the body can repair correctly and reduce the incidence of re-injury.
