Just like humans, dogs can also develop spinal, neck, soft tissue and nerve related injuries due to factors such as lifestyle and breed. These conditions, if remain untreated, can affect behaviour, quality of life and performance, as a result of pain and dysfunction.
Following initial veterinary diagnosis, canine physiotherapy sessions with our qualified practitioners can help to reduce pain and restore your dog’s function.
Conditions That Respond to Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy is commonly used to treat dogs with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions including osteoarthritis, muscle and ligament injuries. Canines with orthopaedic conditions such as elbow dysplasia, hip dysplasia and cruciate ligament injury also benefit significantly from regular physiotherapy to manage their condition. As with humans, dogs also benefit from individual physiotherapy treatment following orthopaedic surgery.
