DOG PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy aims to promote mobility, quality of life and return to function. It uses a science based approach to enable owners to help their dogs return to the activities they enjoy. All dogs are assessed on an individual basis and then a treatment plan is designed to suit their individual needs.

We offer a variety of physiotherapy treatments that will form part of your dogs plan. These can include hydrotherapy, manual therapy, exercise & movement therapy, dry land treadmill and electrotherapy.

We offer three forms of electrotherapy treatments, which you can read more about below or visit here for more information on the above modalities.

LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY (LLLT)
LLLT is the use of light to have an effect on body tissue. The light is absorbed by the cell membranes within the tissues and this can have varying effects; including release of the bodies natural painkillers, stimulation of immune response, promotion of fibre building in musculature and stimulation of white blood cells to fight infection.

ULTRASOUND THERAPY
Ultrasound Therapy is the absorption of sound waves by the body's tissues. Ultrasound waves are absorbed best by tendons, ligaments and scar tissue. The sound waves have a variety of effects on the tissues including the stimulation of white cells, platelets and mast cells. This causes existing inflammation in the tissues to be more effective and helps the body progress to the next stage of healing more efficiently.
PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC THERAPY
Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy is the use of an electro magnetic field to bring about changes at a cellular level within the tissues of the body. By applying an electromagnetic field to affected areas it has been shown that bone healing can be influenced, pain relief can be achieved for arthritic and degenerative conditions, increased circulation to the affected area resulting in improved healing and pain relief following injury.
