Meet our groups
A profession concerned with ensuring the highest standards of animal welfare by promoting, restoring and maintaining animal function and locomotion and maximising quality of life. Veterinary physiotherapists use an integrated multi-modal approach on their animal patients to prevent injury, relieve pain, promote healing, improve movement and enhance performance. Modalities such as manual therapies, electrophysical agents and aquatic therapies may be included in their treatment programme which is further enhanced with an individual tailored remedial exercise programme. Physiotherapy is an evidence based discipline with clinical reasoning at its core.
Animal Chiropractic and Manipulation
Practitioners of chiropractic and other associated manual methods contribute to the optimisation of an animal’s musculoskeletal function, overall well-being and physical performance, through the application of a combination of stimulating, mobilising and manipulative techniques. There is often a direct relationship between biomechanical and neurological dysfunction which can result in a vast array of clinical presentations in the animal patient. Such interventions are designed to facilitate the natural release of joint and soft tissue dysfunction and also optimise neurologic activity.
