Physiotherapy for dogs aims to enhance movement and improve wellbeing. It can also be of great benefit when managing conditions, injuries and mobility issues. If your dog has had a change in its behaviour, is reluctant to go for walks, has slowed down, has difficulty in doing things that it used to for example going up/down stairs or jumping in/out of the car, has a lack of interest in playing, looks stiff, has had an injury/old injury that’s still causing problems, has started hopping, skipping or has changed its gait then physiotherapy may be able to help.
Physiotherapy can help deal with:
- Hip or elbow dysplasia
- Cruciate ligament injuries
- Post-surgery rehabilitation (e.g. intervertebral disc disease)
- Prehabilitation prior to competition
- Enhancing the athletic dog’s performance
- Soft tissue injuries
- Gait abnormalities
- Diagnosed lameness
- Nerve damage
- Muscle imbalance or asymmetries
- Joint mobility
The above can all be dealt with by Maddie Robbins Veterinary Physiotherapy through:
- Myofascial release
- Electrotherapy (laser, TENS, pulsed magnetic field therapy)
- Remedial Exercise Prescription
- Advice on husbandry
