WHAT IS VETERINARY PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Veterinary Physiotherapy consists in assessing and treating a variety of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions in animals, while playing a fundamental part in the animal’s recovery and/or adaptation from an injury. Veterinary Physiotherapy is the application of manual therapies and electrotherapies which help reduce pain and promote healing also involving the prescription of exercises in order to improve joint mobility and restore normal muscle control and function. In addition, physiotherapy can also be used as a maintenance tool and/or to improve performance in animals, while reducing the risk of injury and maximising the performance potential of competition animals.
