TREATMENTS

Veterinary physiotherapy is used to assess and treat musculoskeletal and/or neurological issues in animals using a variety of techniques. Veterinary physiotherapists use a range of non-invasive techniques and electrotherapies applying their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanic assessment. Individual remedial exercise programmes may be provided to the owner/carer to work on specific issues between sessions. Alongside this, advice on the management of the animal may be provided to assist with their rehabilitation.  

Physiotherapy for animals can be provided following veterinary referral and used alongside veterinary care.

Electrotherapies

TENS

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. 
Provides pain relief by exciting sensory nerves causing a release of endogenous opiates and a reduction of activity from noxious sensory pathways.
