Veterinary Physiotherapy is a science based profession using various complimentary treatment modalities, exercise and rehabilitation to achieve defined goals and outcomes.
A full detailed assessment is undertaken to determine the best course of physiotherapy treatment.
Physiotherapy treatment is adapted to each individual horse and may include use of a range of modalities:
· joint mobilisations
· neuromuscular electrical stimulation
· kinesio-Taping with Equi-tape
· therapeutic ultrasound
· myofascial release
· exercise prescription
· rehabilitation planning (see Rehabilitation tab)
Initial assessment and treatment is thorough and usually takes 1-1½ hours.
