Sammy is a qualified and fully insured Veterinary Physiotherapist covering Leicestershire & Rutland, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire & Peterborough and Northamptonshire; as well as parts of Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Warwickshire on both a freelance and veterinary referral basis.
Physiotherapy can be used to prevent, as well as rehabilitate and maintain, muscular and skeletal conditions in animals. Sammy uses a number of techniques to assess your horse or dog holistically, using static and dynamic assessment to visually detect abnormalities in movement, along with palpation of their whole body. The findings are then used alongside any veterinary history to treat and create a bespoke remedial exercise plain, with the aim of restoring and maintaining normal function, reducing pain and discomfort, and improving mobility and performance of your animal.
Some common signs your horse may benefit from assessment and treatment:
- Poor performance/reduced performance levels
- Behavioural changes and resistance behaviours that are often unexplained (bucking, rearing, napping, head-shaking/tilting)
- Sensitivity or discomfort during grooming
- "Cold-backed" behaviours
- Disunited canter, or difficulty striking/maintaining canter on a particular rein
- Poor engagement of the hind-limbs
- Stiffness/leaning on one rein
Sammy has 5 years of degree and post-graduate training, with experience within the equine industry ranging from racehorses and international event horses, to leisure horses.
Contact me today for more information on how I can help your horse or dog, or to book an appointment. Evening and weekend appointments are available.
