Equine Physiotherapy - Treatments

It is a legal requirement to gain veterinary consent before your veterinary physiotherapist can assess and treat your animal. This will have been obtained before your visit, and the findings from the visit share with your vet, keeping them fully informed.

Prior to any treatment and after taking your horses history, a thorough assessment is carried out, including gait analysis. This will ensure that your horse receives the most appropriate treatment and rehabilitation programme, with therapeutic machine hire available for longer treatment periods if required.
