Does my dog really need treatment?

Dogs can suffer from a wide variety of orthopaedic and neurological conditions in all stages of their life.  Whether they need post-surgery rehabilitation or non-surgical conservative management of a condition, physiotherapy plays a vital part in regaining their function and well-being.

Working and competition dogs are subjected to many more stresses than our pet dogs and need to be fit and pain-free in order to perform at their best. Physiotherapy can prevent injury and improve their athletic ability. Common problems in dogs which physiotherapy can help with are:

  • Hip and elbow dysplasia
  • Cruciate ligament problems
  • Neurological conditions
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Post-surgery
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Mobility impairment
  • Pain/Discomfort
  • Lameness/gait abnormality
  • Fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Stiffness after exercise
