Equine Physiotherapy

Equine physiotherapy is an extremely well recognised tool, utilised to enhance recovery times, associated with injury.

Veterinary Physiotherapists combine static and dynamic assessment with palpation and clinical reasoning. You can be assured that any minor musculoskeletal changes are detected, improving your horses well-being and enhancing performance.
