Physiotherapy

Humans use Physiotherapy for the treatment of muscle, tendon, ligament, joint, bone & cartilage problems caused by injury, disease & repetitive stress. Physiotherapy is also used pre & post surgery. It is now increasingly known that animals can benefit from Physiotherapy too, & many owners are turning to Veterinary & Animal Physiotherapy alongside conventional Veterinary treatment.

Physiotherapy treatments include soft tissue techniques such as massage, myofascial release, stretches, de-activation of trigger points, reciprocal inhibition & use of passive, active assisted & active range of movements. Other treatment modalities involve exercises & movement therapy, mobilisations & electrotherapy (neuromuscular electro-stimulation / NMES, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation / TENS, ultrasound & laser) as well as static & pulsed magnotherapy.
I also use kinesio taping techniques & physio for posture work.
