Veterinary Physiotherapist (ACPAT Cat A)
Physiotherapy helps restore movement & function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. Physiotherapists help people through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice (Chartered Society of Physiotherapists). Treatments include soft tissue therapy, joint and spinal mobilisations, acupuncture, taping and much more!
Sports Massage uses a variety of techniques to improve circulation & lymphatic flow, remove metabolic waste, alter muscle tone and length, remodel scar tissue as required, offer relaxation and improve general well-being (Sports Massage Association). The techniques used have a large influence from many other areas of therapy, and can be used in isolation or in conjunction with other treatments where deemed necessary.
