Benefits of Physiotherapy
Our pets can experience similar problems to humans, but unfortunately, they are not able to tell us where the pain is or if they have injured themselves. We always aim to give your pet the best possible care and we believe that Physiotherapy can help ease pain and discomfort from a range of common conditions and can also aid post-operative care.
Treatment services include manual therapies such as massage and stretching, remedial exercise prescription to suit the rehabilitation or fitness requirements of your pet and electrotherapies including neuromuscular stimulation and pulsed magnetic field.
Common conditions treated include:
- Luxating Patella
- Cruciate Injuries
- Ligament & Tendon Injuries
- Hip & Elbow Dysplasia
- Muscle Imbalances
- Gait Abnormalities
- Neurological Conditions
- Fitness Improvements
- Weight Loss
- Spinal Injuries
- Decreased Mobility
- Pain Management
- Post-Operative Recovery
