WHAT IS VETERINARY PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Veterinary Physiotherapy is an increasingly popular therapy used for several benefits such as promoting healing, pain relief and the rehabilitation of injuries. Rehabilitation has become a rapidly growing service within veterinary hospitals and referral centres to prevent the recurrence of injury in animals. Some of the aims of physiotherapy include: maintain muscle mass, correct compensatory issues, prehabilitation before and rehabilitation after surgery and improve strength.
Although Veterinary Physiotherapy is widely recognised for its renowned advantages, it remains essential to take care when choosing a physiotherapist to treat your animal as the title of a ‘Veterinary Physiotherapist’ is not protected. Relevant qualifications and registered membership allow an owner to have trust in the physiotherapist which Hollie prizes herself on, ensuring every animal receives the highest level of treatment suitable for them.
