Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy aims to restore the movement, strength and function of our patients, relieve pain and inflammation, and accelerate the rehabilitation process and can be used to help with:

  •  Mobility problems and lameness
  •  Muscle spasms or soft tissue injuries
  •  Neurological conditions
  •  Post-operative rehabilitation
  •  Pain relief, and to slow down further degeneration of osteoarthritis

Our dedicated physiotherapist will make a full assessment and suggest a detailed treatment plan including a programme to be continued at home. Factors which are taken into consideration include the pet’s age, the nature of the injury, his or her lifestyle and any other medical conditions.

Treatment techniques which may be used include:

  • Massage
  • Passive range of motion
  • Trigger-point therapy
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Stretching

Appointments last around 45 minutes and typically a course of 3-4 appointments would be most beneficial.

Appointments are available at our Ripon or Pateley Bridge practices

Cost:

£30.00 per session
