What is physiotherapy and how can it be useful?
In Human medicine, “Physiotherapy uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being.” It is interesting to think how this can be applied to the veterinary patient.
Physically, it is often used:
The aim here is to aid in recovery by assisting the body with natural healing, focusing on fitness to function.
The psychological and social well -being becomes evident when you see your dog able to socialise and participate in exercise, – back out on those fresh air walks.
There are comprehensive trainings that must be undertaken by a veterinary physiotherapist and treatment is always tailor -made to suit your pet and is adjusted to assist them throughout their recovery.
Physio is possible in both land and water-based environments conducted by expertly trained staff who will ensure that the environment is not stressful to your pet.
For further information about treatment or referrals please consult your vet.
