Physiotherapy is a recognised and established treatment integrated into care plans within human medicine. Physiotherapy is growing in popularity within the veterinary field and can be a useful addition to traditional treatments used within veterinary medicine.
Physiotherapy can be used to help restore, maintain and promote physical function. A carefully coordinated rehabilitation program can optimise the body's healing potential, aid a return to full function and fitness and limit the affects of injury or disease upon the musculoskeletal system.
To determine a successful rehabilitation program for each specific animal, a thorough assessment and evaluation of movement, anatomical structure and muscle condition will be undertaken. Each treatment plan is tailored to suit the animal's individual needs.
