PHYSIOTHERAPY

Every treatment or physiotherapy session will be different depending on the individuals needs. Maddie will conduct an initial assessment to apply her advanced knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics, disease and injury pathology and physiology. A treatment plan will be developed involving a range of techniques, whether these are manual therapies, electrotherapies in conjunction with remedial exercise prescriptions (REP) that in some instances the owner can achieve at home to enhance the best possible long-term outcome.


A veterinary physiotherapist is part of a multidisciplinary team who all work together to reach the same goal.


The aim of a physiotherapist is to support and enhance the body’s natural cellular activity and healing process to treat a variety of issues, some of these include:

  • Musculoskeletal conditions
  • Neurological dysfunction
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Orthopedic conditions
  • Pre and post-surgical management
  • Back Problems
  • Wound healing
  • Osteoarthritis and other age related changes
  • Obesity
  • Performance enhancement

SERVICES

MANUAL THERAPY

  • Relieve pain and tension.
  • Promote flexibility, strength and range of motion
  • Improve cellular activity, muscle quality and muscle function
  • Improve postural and biomechanical imbalances/assymetry.
  • Promotes bodies healing mechanism.
  • Reduces fibrous thickening or scar tissue, therefore improving pliability of muscle fibers
  • Reduce the risk of injury.

ELECTROTHERAPY

  • Pain relief
  • Tissue Stimulation
  • Promote and aid the bodies natural healing process
  • Reduce oedema and inflammation
  • Improve muscle quality and function from a cellular level.

REMEDIAL EXERCISE

  • Rehabilitation exercise program specific to case
  • Stretches to improve flexibility and range of motion
  • Weight shifting to enhance postural strength.

WHAT WE DO
