Before the first appointment the Veterinary Physiotherapist will contact your vet to discuss your animal's diagnosis/problem and gain permission to treat the patient. At the initial visit a detailed case history will be taken, which will include the animal's management, work load, nutrition and farriery information.
The horse will be assessed for both static and dynamic conformation including foot balance, the saddle fit will be assessed and the horse may be seen lunged or ridden depending on the nature of the problem.
A range of therapies may then be employed in the course of a treatment and a home treatment plan devised for the owner to carry out in between visits. The Veterinary Physiotherapist will write a report detailing findings and a treatment plan and both the owner and the referring vet will receive a copy.
