Physiotherapy is the application of a number of techniques that help muscles, joints and nerves (the musculoskeletal system) recover from injury and function to their full potential. Musculoskeletal injury is the most important field in veterinary physiotherapy and the majority of soft tissue injuries can benefit from treatment.
If your horse has had an accident, fallen, been cast or pulled back badly he may suffer soft tissue damage which leads to abnormalities in the way he moves with a resultant change in his way of going and poor performance.
Physiotherapy can also be useful in the treatment and management of secondary problems due to orthopaedic conditions such as navicular syndrome and spavin. It is important that these conditions have first been diagnosed by your veterinary surgeon.
Chartered physiotherapists assess and treat a wide range of condition using manual techniques. These include joint and soft tissue mobilisations/manipulations. Laser, ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation may be used alone or in conjunction with manual techniques to optimise the horse’s ability to heal.
Chartered Physiotherapist’ is a title that gives the public the guarantee that the person using the title has gained a certain level of academic training and is qualified and registered to practice. A Chartered physiotherapist will have the letters MCSP (Member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) and HPC registered (Health Professionals Council) after their name.
