I provide veterinary physiotherapy throughout Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties specialising in the maintenance and rehabilitation of horses. I identify and treat muscular imbalances and support movement and function from top level sports horses to those used more for pleasure riding.
Regular maintenance sessions are beneficial to all levels of horse to help keep them performing at their best and enabling riders to maximise time spent riding. For older animals and those with long term chronic conditions, veterinary physiotherapy can help comfort levels by addressing any musculoskeletal issues that arise and provide support to owners in terms of home exercise programmes and training advice to enable to you get the most from your horse.
For those competing on a regular basis, including veterinary physiotherapy as part of your horses training and conditioning programme will make sure your horse is in the best condition possible for those competitions. Pre-competition treatments can help maximise performance, whilst post-competition treatments will help to speed up recovery times.
I use a variety of modalities within my work, including massage, soft tissue manipulation, myofascial release, stretching and Kinesio Taping. I also use a variety of electrotherapies including photon therapy (laser), ultrasound and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PET) depending on the needs of the individual animal. I can work with owners on the ground and provide them with remedial exercise programmes where appropriate.
I work with animals other than horses, particularly dogs. If you are unsure whether veterinary physiotherapy may be suitable for your animal, please get in touch for a no obligation chat.
