The Working Horse
Routine checks on horses in regular work can often pick up minor changes in movement patterns which, when addressed early, can avoid potential for injuries to occur. Physiotherapy can also help to enhance movement and flexibility before competition, then to support tissue repair and health afterwards. Just like human athletes make good use of their Physio, so our equine athletes can too.
The Injured Horse
Physiotherapy is often utilised following Veterinary diagnosis and treatment to assist in supporting your horse back to good health and function.
The Older Horse
Physiotherapy can help reduce aches, pains and stiffness in the older horse, consequently improving quality of life for your veteran.
