prevent | rehabilitate | perform
Despite best efforts sometimes injuries cannot be prevented and, in these cases, soft tissue therapy can be very effective in supporting the rehabilitation and recovery process. In addition muscle sensitivity can be secondary to chronic orthopaedic issues, injuries or illness. The therapy techniques I use are applied to the soft tissue structures of your horse’s body, that is to say the muscles, ligaments and tendons, to keep or return them to good health. In addition the manipulation and mobilisation techniques also work towards
achieving optimal ranges of movement in the joints.
I always work with veterinary consent. Under the Veterinary Surgeon’s Act this is a legal requirement for all
therapists and is applicable even if your horse has no apparent issues.
In rehabilitative cases I work especially closely with the incumbent veterinary surgeon and any other equine
paraprofessionals who are involved in the horse’s recovery including physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths and farriers.
