EQUINE PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy is a key part of equine training and rehabilitation, and can be used as maintenance for all types of equines - from racehorses to miniature breeds.

Conditions that benefit from physiotherapy:

  • Back pain 

  • Lameness

  • Muscle spasm

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Suspensory Desmitis

  • Kissing spines

  • Laminitis 

  • Tendon and Ligament injury

  • Obesity

  • Neurological issues (such as wobblers)

  • Maintenance during box rest

  • Performance enhancement 

  • Fitness and conditioning

Many horse owners experience some difficulties with their horses, whether it be during tacking up, schooling, hacking etc.

Often, misbehaving horses are labelled as "naughty".

More often than not, there are underlying issues that may be causing certain behaviours such as bucking, rearing, spinning etc. 

There are 3 main reasons why a horse may not perform the way you expect:

  • They do not understand what you are asking

  • They physically cannot perform what you are asking

  • They are in pain

 

Physiotherapy can work alongside other professionals such as farriers, vets and saddlers to keep your horse fit, healthy and free from injury.
