Equine and Small Animal Physiotherapy in Lancashire

animal physio

I provide freelance animal physio services within Lancashire and surrounding areas, covering a 25 mile radius of Blackburn, Lancashire. GGVetPhysio can provide the most up to date bespoke equine and small animal veterinary physio treatments in the clients’ home, yard or veterinary practice.

Working alongside vets, I provide equine and small animal physiotherapy treatment pre and post-surgery, supporting musculoskeletal conditions, age related conditions, neurological conditions and maintenance treatment such as sports massages, by combining the use of manual therapies, electrotherapies and rehabilitation.

Veterinary permission should be given before an animal can be treated with physiotherapy.

I am a fully qualified Veterinary Physio to post-graduate level under the National Association for Veterinary Physiotherapists.


How Animal Physiotherapy Can Help Your Pet

The Animal Physiotherapist employs an advanced knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics, disease and injury pathology and physiology to develop an effective treatment plan for each individual animal. 

Physiotherapy following veterinary referral can help animals recover from a variety of conditions, such as back pain, sprains, strains, fractures and sporting injuries. It can also be used following orthopaedic, neurological or general surgery, as well as improve biomechanics and athletic ability. The use of veterinary physiotherapy is increasing. Animals can undergo a wide range of treatments, including manual techniques, electrotherapies and exercise therapy. 

Manual Techniques


Vet Physio


Manual strategies utilise the combination of different treatment techniques including:

·        Movement Therapies; ranging from passive range of movement of limbs and joints (ie movement without ‘effort’), to assisted walking, to the obstacle course for the very advanced patient.

         Manual Therapies; including hands-on graded mobilisation techniques to loosen joint stiffness or pain

·        Soft Tissue Techniques; including massage techniques and myofascial release techniques aimed at loosening tensions in and between soft tissues. These different techniques can be used in both the land-based and water-based environments, such as the hydrotherapy setting, and application of such exercise regimes and hands-on techniques have consistently been demonstrated to improve the physical function of the veterinary patient.

Laser, ultrasound and pulsed electromagnetic energy all work at a cellular level to provide pain relief, promote the resolution of inflammation, reduce swelling, and improve the quality and speed of healing and the reduction of scar formation.

The choice depends on which type of tissue is injured, how deep it is within the body, and the stage of healing.

Electrotherapies available include



TENS  Transcutaneous Electro Neural Stimulation

EMS  Electro Muscular Stimulation

 Application of physiotherapy techniques in the veterinary patient requires an in depth understanding of the patient’s anatomy, physiology and movement patterning, as well as typical behaviours and communication strategies. With these key points of knowledge, the therapist should be able to apply an effective physiotherapy treatment regime in most domestic species.
