Dogs are our best friends, but they too can suffer from numerous health conditions and mobility problems. Many of these can be significantly improved with physiotherapy.
Some common conditions include:
Elbow / hip dysplasia
Cruciate ligament injuries
Physiotherapy targets pain and weaknesses, helping to strengthen and stabilise weakened muscles, increase mobility and flexibility and enhance your dog’s overall health and well-being.
Physiotherapy helps to:
Strengthen weak muscles and support joints
Improve balance and coordination
Reduce pain and inflammation
Enhance athletic performance
Reduce the risk of future re-injury
During an appointment Rebecca will visit your dog in their own environment where they feel most relaxed. After taking a case history and assessing your dog’s posture, muscle symmetry and gait, Rebecca will then put together a tailored treatment plan which may include massage, stretching, electrotherapies and a home exercise programme to help your dog get back to doing what they enjoy most.
