Equine FAQs

What is equine physiotherapy?

Most people have either had physiotherapy themselves or know someone who has had it. Equine physiotherapy follows the exact same principles and treatments. Evolution has meant we are all designed to move, however after illness, surgery, injury or disability this can be difficult. We can help restore movement whilst reducing pain, improving strength and ultimately independence.

What conditions/patients do you see?

We see a variety of patients but below are the most common conditions;
-  Post-surgical rehabilitation such as kissing spines, soft tissue or bony surgeries
-  Management of chronic conditions such as arthritis
-  Conservative cases including sacroiliac rehabilitation
-   Maintenance cases to keep your horse flexible and comfortable

How do I book an appointment?

You can contact us through the website, call 07476820808 or email us at [email protected] . We can then discuss your needs and if appropriate you can download the form on our website to email or drop into your vets. We can also send the referral form for you once we have some details.

How long will physiotherapy take?

This is a million-dollar question and difficult to answer, purely because every case is different and so is the reason for physiotherapy. We will answer this however after an initial appointment. We do tailor our rehabilitation plans to you, for example if you would prefer to space appointments, we will ensure you feel equipped with our rehabilitation plans to do this at home. We can also provide packages which you might find more suitable.

Can my insurance cover physiotherapy treatment?

It is dependent on your insurance but we always advise to check with your insurer prior to your first appointment.

Are there any extra charges?

Travel charges will be applied over a 10mile radius.
