Equine Physiotherapy

Equine physiotherapy is a specialised field that focuses on improving the physical well-being and performance of horses through various techniques. Just like humans, horses can benefit from physiotherapy to help with injury recovery, enhance mobility, and optimise overall health.

Physiotherapy for horses often includes a combination of manual therapy, (such as massage and stretching), electrotherapy, (such as laser therapy), as well as exercises to improve strength, flexibility, and coordination. These interventions can help address issues like muscle stiffness, joint pain, and postural imbalances.

Professional equine physiotherapists work closely with veterinarians and horse owners to develop personalised treatment plans tailored to each horse’s specific needs. By incorporating physiotherapy into a horse’s routine, it can lead to improved performance, reduced risk of injury, and a better quality of life for these magnificent animals.
