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.
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.
Helps accelerate and promote the natural healing process, manage pain and inflammation in chronic degenerative conditions.
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation.
Artificial activation of muscle fibres to help prevent muscle atrophy, improve muscle strength and mass when used in conjunction with exercise.
Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Therapy.
Optimises the body's ability to repair and re-establish the normal cellular voltage. Used for pain, fractures, wounds
Epiony Heat Pad
Improves blood flow and lymphatic flow, reduces pain, and relaxes muscle fibres. Used for areas of muscle tension, chronic muscle pain, and joint pain.
