What is Veterinary Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy uses physical methods, such as mobilisation, massage, exercise, ultrasound, laser, and hot and cold therapies to promote healing and restore function. In addition physiotherapy can be used to improve athletic performance by enhancing balance, co-ordination and muscle control of both the horse and rider.
