Physiotherapy aims to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, reduce pain and restore mobility and function. Veterinary Physiotherapy can also be utilised for performance enhancement in athletic and working animals. If your pet has had surgery, an injury or disease, physiotherapy should be an integral part of the recovery process.
There is no one-size-fits-all in physiotherapy so I take every pet and owner as they are and tailor the treatment to their individual needs and goals. I’m committed to continuously furthering my knowledge and skills to ensure up to date and evidence based treatment. I provide a personalised, professional and genuinely caring physiotherapy service for your dog (or other pet) from the comfort of your own home.
Mobilising, strengthening and reconditioning weak or injured areas using reward-based training and positive reinforcement methods to help your pet get back to normal activities.
Massage, myofascial release, joint mobilisations, stretching and craniosacral therapy are utilised to reduce pain/discomfort, increase mobility, and enhance recovery from injury or surgery.
LASER therapy (photobiomodulation), TENS, NMES, and ultrasound help increase blood flow, reduce inflammation and pain, and stimulate tissue healing without side effects.
LASER therapy (photobiomodulation)
LASER therapy uses infrared and visible red light applied to an area using high intensity light emitting diodes. We only use biologically effective light wave lengths (808nm and 650nm). The energy transferred from the light beam to the target tissue increases cell activity and leads to effects like:
LASER therapy has been scientifically proven to aid the healing process in thousands of studies.
Therapeutic ultrasound involves an application of sound waves to a specific area causing a mechanical micro massage of the targeted tissues. The vibration causes a thermal effect in the target tissue and can aid in:
Clinical Canine Massage Therapy involves the direct and skilled manipulation of the muscles and fascia along with a real hands-on working knowledge of the muscular system including fibre direction, muscle isolation, the use of origins, insertions and actions in addition to palpation skills for tissue assessment.
