Veterinary physiotherapy is essential in the prevention, cure and rehabilitation of many conditions. Following soft tissue injuries, fractures, age-related musculoskeletal disease, and several different surgical procedures, physiotherapy is used to accelerate healing, rehabilitation, and restore function. Canine physiotherapy re-educates movement, increases strength and function, reduces pain, swelling and inflammation and improves your dogs quality of life and return to normal mobility.
Physiotherapy Conditions that can be helped:
- Rehabilitation after surgery – for example, following surgery for hip and elbow dysplasia and cruciate disease
- Rehabilitation following fractures
- Joint problems- including degenerative disease/arthritis, pain/injury/stiffness in joints
- Congenital problems, e.g. elbow dysplasia, hip dysplasia, cranial cruciate ligament rupture
- Back, neck and pelvic pain- including intervertebral disc disease, lumbosacral stenosis
- Muscle, tendon and ligament strain/tears
- Neurological conditions
- Pain or discomfort
- Difficulty with function, e.g. jumping, stairs
- A special note on the athlete – agility, working, and flyball dogs suffer many soft tissue injuries, which are often subtle and complex to make a complete diagnosis. Also, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal performance can be enhanced by physiotherapy intervention
