Specialist Equine Physiotherapist
MICHELLE LUCK VETERINARY PHYSIOTHERAPY & REHABILITATION
FULLY QUALIFIED. FULLY INSURED. MIRVAP
Physiotherapy can be used to prevent injuries, improve perfromance and enhance the natural healing process. Musculoskeletal injuries that involve muscle, tendon, ligament, joints and skin can benefit hugely using physiotherapy if the right technique or modality is used and at the right time.
The Role of The Physiotherapist
The role of the Equine Veterinary Physiotherapist is to fully assess the horse using their advanced knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, disease, injury and animal behaviour and then develop an effective treatment plan using manual therapies and/or electrotherapies. They can then work with the owner/carer of the horse to devise a suitable rehabilition programme to bring the horse back to optimum health and fitness.
The Equine Veterinary Physiotherapist is very much part of a dedicated team, that includes the vet, farrier/trimmer, trainer and owner/rider.
