Reviews from Clients

How Animal Physiotherapy Can Help Your Pet

  • Physiotherapy for Dogs.

  • Physiotherapy for Cats.

  • Physiotherapy fo Horses.

  • Physiotherapy for Farm Animals.

  • Physiotherapy for Small Animals

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. 

In optimum conditions nature will heal an injury in a particular time span. However, for many reasons, these conditions are not always readily available. In these circumstances the injury will take longer to heal than nature intended or at worst may not heal at all. The aim of the physiotherapist is to optimise these conditions so that the body can heal the injury in the best time span.

Physiotherapy is delivered by:

  • Physiotherapeutic equipment
  • Manual techniques
  • Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy following veterinary referral can help animals recover from a variety of conditions, such as back pain, sprains, strains, fractures and sporting injuries. Animal therapy 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 Physiotherapy 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. 

 
Electrotherapies

 

animal physio

 

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

Laser

Ultrasound

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.
