Equine Veterinary Physiotherapy

Equine physiotherapy is widely used and recognised within both research and the equine industry, as an effective tool for maintenance and to improve performance and rehabilitation.

Behaviour

Have you noticed a loss of performance, or any changes in behaviour? There are many subtle indicators that your horse could benefit from physiotherapy and these can include:

  • 'Girthiness' or aversion to tack

  • Tail swishing

  • Unwillingness to move forward or 'rushing'

  • Regularly holding tail outside of the midline

  • Head/nose tilting

  • Evasion of the bit

  • 'Stiffness'

  • 'Cold backed' or hollowing of the back

  • Sensitivity during grooming or rugging

  • Any new behaviours or changes in behaviour

  • Difficulty with certain schooling exercises

Amongst many others

 

Conditions

I work alongside vets, farriers, etc as part of a team to aid in the management or recovery from: existing conditions, injuries or surgeries. These can include but are not limited to:

  • Arthritis

  • Kissing spines

  • Soft tissue injuries

  • Kissing spines surgery

  • Tissue healing

  • Sacro-iliac pain

Maintenance

Physiotherapy is also used regularly to maintain competition fitness and to prevent injury; regular maintenance sessions will allow me to identify any subtle changes before they become a problem.


Each session is tailored to the specific needs of each individual horse and their owner.
