Horses - Information

Horses can benefit from veterinary physiotherapy for injuries and illnesses, as well as enhancing their performance.

By no means an exhaustive list, but some common conditions that I might be able to help with are:

  • Osteoarthritis (OA)

  • Intermittent upward fixation of the patella (IUFP)

  • Angular limb deformities (in foals)

  • A range of ligament and tendon injuries, including suspensory ligament desmitis and tendonitis

  • Sacroiliac disease

  • Laminitis

  • Cervical vertebral malformation (Wobblers)

  • Back pain

You may even have noticed some behavioural changes, for example resenting the girth being done up, which can be indicative of pain. I will work closely with your vet to manage any conditions your horse may have – this can involve referring back to the vet, if I find something upon examination that isn’t mentioned in their vet history.

I can also provide you with a tailored plan to improve your horse’s athletic performance. This can include increasing stride length, range of motion, and flexibility.

Maintenance treatments are also often popular, just to keep your horse comfortable and moving well, without the need for me to see them every week - though the intervals between treatments will vary according to the horse.

Clinic days are held according to demand – as this allows me to see more horses in a day it means I can offer a discounted service! I provide a mobile service for all my equine clients, with a discount available if I see multiple horses on the same yard - please see the treatment terms and conditions on the 'Referral Information' page for eligibility details.
