Soft tissue injuries and fractures - IVDD, CDRM and other neurological conditions
Manual Therapy: Mobilising, massage, soft tissue techniques and stretching make up the primary treatment of any session carefully chosen in their application to be the most effective.
Laser Therapy: Class 4 laser helps reduce inflammation and increase healing in the body. It is ideal for arthritic dogs, tendon or muscle injuries and can help with skin conditions like dermatitis. Laser can be used within physiotherapy sessions or or as stand alone treatment.
Ultasound Therapy: Ultrasound work on the tissue at deeper levels than is accessible at the surface to provide a more penetrating treatment and are available as a stand alone treatment.
Exercise Programmes: Using expert knowledge in biomechanics each exercise programme is individually tailor made. The weaknesses in the body are identified in the physical sessions and in depth, comprehensive programmes are written with the understanding of the what the exercise has on the animal
I qualified as a Veterinary Physiotherapist in 2016 from Writtle College University and last year completed a dissertation in saddle fitting and was awarded Masters degree, the highest level of training in the field. During my course I undertook physiotherapy placements at specialist vet practices such as the Royal Veterinary College and Anderson Abercromby Veterinary Referrals gaining expert experience on orthopaedics and neurology. I am also a qualified Equine Sports Massage Therapist and completed my training in 2015 with Equinenergy, a sister company to the world renowned Equinology.
The combination of my training, placement hours and supervised practical experience granted me to membership to the Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP) who are trailblazing the industry into gold standard regulation. As a fully qualified and insured physiotherapist I am regulated by RAMP and the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapist (NAVP) who enforce a strict code of conduct, minimum CPD hours requirement each year and disciplinary procedures. Since qualifying I have done CPD in kinesio taping with Rocktape, attended international conferences delivered by world leaders in their fields and undertaken a twelve-month research project in horse-saddle-rider interaction.
