When to call a PHYSIOTherapist?

Every owner or trainer wants the best for their animal. There may not be a specific problem that needs to be addressed but just a check up to prevent problems further down the line. You may even wish to help an anxious or excitable animal relax. Behavioural issues, changes or loss of performance may be your pets only way of communicating discomfort or pain.

Misalignments may present with various signs, initially there may be only very subtle changes in posture and gait as they try to compensate for the restriction. With time the animal may become stiff as they lose the range of motion of the joints which in turn can impact other areas of the body or even lead to further injury. If the nerves are affected you may find muscle wastage and / or weakness.

For horses, loss of performance, difficulty saddling, refusing or knocking down jumps, leaning on the bit, difficulties in canter, bucking, rearing, napping, or behavioural changes can all be signs of underlying pain, that in many cases can be helped.

For dogs, typical signs of physical issues may be that your dog hesitates or refuses to jump up into the car, go for a walk, show discomfort by limping, change of posture, growling, whimpering, yelping, or even show aggression including biting.
