Just like humans, physiotherapy is an essential part of rehabilitating a dog back to full function following injury or surgery. Physiotherapy assessment can detect small problems before they develop into more serious issues that negatively affect performance in an athlete. This is particulary relevent for working and agility dogs.
Some examples of what physiotherapy can help with:
- Neurological disorders
- Hip dysplasia
- Intevertebral disc disease
- Maintenance for working/agility dogs
- Pre/post competition checks
