Equine Physiotherapy

IMG_4614 copy.JPG

 Regardless of your horse’s discipline, or whether they are a performance, leisure, or senior horse, every one of them can benefit from physiotherapy. Physiotherapy helps to improve performance, restore movement, reduce the risk of injury and also improve overall quality of life.

 Due to their resilient nature, subtle changes in your horses behaviour or performance may indicate they are in need of a physiotherapy assessment. This could present as lack of bend, inconsistent in the contact, reluctance to engage, refusing jumps, or a change in temperament.

Regular physiotherapy can highlight any minor problems or asymmetries before they become a more chronic problem. Along with this, physiotherapy can treat a large variety of soft tissue injuries such as ligaments, tendon, muscles, wounds and scars by promoting and stimulating the healing process.

How can physiotherapy help your horse?

Physiotherapy considers the horses body as a whole, rather than just focusing on the individual aspects of an injury.
