Prevention is better than cure

Physiotherapy can be used for a variety of reasons and can help all horses no matter their situation and/or discipline. If you have a companion horse, physiotherapy can be used as a maintenance/prevention tool and can help to reduce the horse's pain/discomfort, restore muscle control and joint mobility. If you and your horse are a competitive pair, physiotherapy can help maintaining the horse's fitness and enhancing performance while decreasing the risk of injury. Physiotherapy has also shown incredible results in the post injury/rehabilitation phase too, focusing on the healing process of tissues.
