Physiotherapy for horses

What problems can be treated with physiotherapy and how can they be treated?

  • Lameness
  • Trauma and soft tissue injuries
  • Uneven wearing of shoes or hooves
  • Saddle area soreness
  • Back problems
  • Change of behaviour
  • Poor, inconsistent or under performance
  • Stiffness on one rein
  • Discomfort being tacked or rugged up

Treatment is based on thorough assessment so that each treatment and rehabilitation programme is developed around your horse’s specific needs and often includes rehabilitation and strengthening exercises both in-hand and ridden as well as stretches, core stability and proprioception training.
