Why does my horse need physiotherapy?
- resistance to bending in one direction
- difficulty engaging the hind end
- trouble with one canter lead
- disuniting in canter
- forms of resistance, i.e bucking / rearing
- Resistance to tacking up
- Change in attitude
- Head tilting
- Holding tail to one side
- knocking poles
Small changes in posture and movement can often go unnoticed due to the horse’s incredible ability to hide and compensate for pain.
What begins as an untreated minor injury can cascade into dysfunctional movement patterns, poor posture and eventually a chronic condition.
Restoring mobility to any restricted tissue in the body and promoting healing allows the body to return to function quicker and with fewer compensatory issues. Problems are rarely in isolation and as simple as just a ‘sore back’. Hannah is trained to assess the whole body to get to the origin of the issue and not just treat the symptoms.
Pathologies that indicate physiotherapy would be useful:
- Osteoarthritis / degenerative joint disease
- Ligament or tendon damage
- Kissing spines (Pre/Post op or conservative approach)
- Saddle fit problems
- Compensatory soreness
- Scar tissue
- Pre/post competition
