Dog Physiotherapy

The aim of Canine Physiotherapy is to stimulate the dog's body and initiate a natural healing process, reduce pain, restore mobility and function. Dog Physiotherapy can also be used for performance enhancement in athletic and working animals. If your pet has had surgery, an injury, or a disease, physiotherapy can be a key part of the rehabilitation process, which includes Laer and Heat Therapy.

Just like humans dogs can suffer with a variety of conditions, illnesses or injuries at times within their lives which can affect their mobility, movement, muscle strength and function. These can include acute injuries such as fractures or soft tissue injuries which require a period of rehabilitation or conditions such as hip dysplasia or arthritis which may require longer term management.

Dogs can also suffer from neurological conditions and spinal injuries which can affect balance, coordination and in severe cases complete loss of mobility. In each case, when working in conjunction with your vet, physiotherapy can assist with maintaining or improving your dog’s level of function and quality of life.
