EQUINE ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT

All horses from happy hackers to elite competition horses can benefit from physiotherapy.  Even if your horse doesn’t have a specific injury or trauma it can benefit your horse to be routinely checked. This means that small problems can be detected early and prevented from developing into more serious issues.

 

Common Problems:

 

  • Soft tissue injuries to tendon, ligament and muscle

  • Back pain

  • Poor/inconsistent performance issues

  • Wounds and scar tissue

  • Behavioural issues

  • Secondary compensations from lameness

  • Rehabilitation

  • Maximising performance

  • Advice and education

 

 

Veterinary Surgeons Act?

‚Äč

The Veterinary Surgeons Act (1966) stipulates that animals can only be treated by a Veterinary Surgeon or someone authorised by a Veterinary Surgeon. It is therefore a legal requirement that I obtain verbal or written Veterinary consent prior to your animal's first physiotherapy appointment.
