Physiotherapy Treatments

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.

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:

  • increased local blood flow
  • increased ATP (cell energy source) production
  • increased cell proliferation -> tissue healing
  • reduced inflammation (by modulating the normal inflammatory process)
  • reduced conduction in the nociceptive nerves (reduced pain sensation)

LASER therapy has been scientifically proven to aid the healing process in thousands of studies.

Therapeutic Ultrasound

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:

  • increasing blood circulation
  • enhancing collagen production (tissue healing)
  • increasing fibrous tissue extensibility (scar tissue, ligament, tendon)
  • improving scar tissue functionality
  • enhancing tendon and ligament repair

Benefits of Massage

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.

  • Improved mobility and activity levels
  • Resolution or reduction of lameness/limping and stiffness
  • Improved character/mood
  • Return to normal posture and gait
  • A fully rehabilitated muscular injury
  • Able to return to activities of daily living e.g. up/down stairs, walks
  • A happier dog more willing to be examined, petted or groomed
