Physiotherapy can help your horse by relieving pain, increasing mobility and promoting healing. Often horses only display subtle signs of pain or discomfort such as a change in behaviour, a change in performance, stiffness or a change in their normal movement pattern.
Physiotherapy is extremely useful in assessing this and providing the correct treatment or referring to the vet if there is an underlying condition. In the sporting horse, physiotherapy can help to achieve and maintain optimal performance levels.
