WELCOME TO EC VETERINARY PHYSIOTHERAPY
'Providing physiotherapy to family pets and animal athletes'
Veterinary physiotherapy provides many benefits including pain relief, recovery from musculoskeletal injury/surgery, improved performance and the long-term management of numerous conditions. Following an assessment of your animal, a treatment plan is created which incorporates massage, manual techniques, electrotherapies. You will also be advised on a home exercise and management plan.
This will include taking a full history of the animal as well as watching your pet move. Palpation of muscles and range of motion of joints will also be assessed. Both short-term and long-term goals will be discussed. Following this assessment a full treatment will be provided.
Follow up treatments will be based on case notes from prior appointments and the improvement seen at the start of the session. Again, manual and electrotherapy techniques will be used where appropriate. Similarly, the exercise and management plan be updated according to progress and improvement.
Before your first appointment, consent from your pet's veterinary surgeon is required (form found here). This allows us to work alongside your vet and update them on your animal's treatment and progress.
Please note: equine patients are advised to have 24-48hrs off from ridden work post-treatment to allow recovery from deep tissue work.
