It is an evidence-based art, requiring years of training and experience.
We can support your dog with management of a range of orthopeadic conditions such as elbow and hip dysplasia, cruciate disease, spondlylosis and osteoarthritis. We can also support your dog through neurological conditions.
Why is Veterinary Physiotherapy Needed?
Orthopeadic condition such as spondylosis, osteoarthritis, elbow or hip dysplasia, luxating patella or cruciate disease need physiotherapy to aid their recovery and management of their condition.
Where surgery has taken place physiotherapy promotes healing, reduces pain, increasing and improves outcomes.
Dogs with neurological conditions such as Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD), Fibrocartilaginous Embolism (FCE), Wobbler Syndrome and Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) often need intensive veterinary physiotherapy to help them maintain/regain mobility.
Preventative and Conservative Physiotherapy
The majority of dogs we see are our 'Golden Oldies' who's owners report that they have 'slowed down' and are struggling with mobility.
We have many really proactive owners who book maintenance sessions for their dogs to maintain fitness, keeping their dogs supple and strong before their dogs have issues with mobility. This is crucial to maintain their quality of life, pain levels and mobility.
We also have owners who would like to conservatively manage their dogs condition (avoiding surgery). A bespoke physiotherapy plan is essential to effectively manage their conditions.
Perfect for agility or flyball dogs, regular veterinary physiotherapy helps to identify and treat niggles as soon as they arise, ensuring your dog is consistently able to maintain their performance levels.
Other working and sporting dogs also benefit, especially when they have been 'off season' or are entering pre-season training - this is where we tend to find most issues are most likely to occur.
