dog canine physio
Recent injury or recovering from surgery?
Not quite making your usual agility times?
Physiotherapy for dogs can help to improve confidence, weight bearing and prevent compensation patterns.
Maxine works closely with Dovecote Veterinary Surgery, Leicester to help canines of all breeds and sizes to recover from injury. You can have your dog assessed in your own home, or you can ask to be referred to Dovecote from your vet.
Assessment and treatment of your dog will take approximately
45 minutes. It will include a thorough history of the problem, assessment through palpation, range of movement and any special tests. Followed by an appropriate treatment plan which will be dependent on your dog’s individual requirements.
Treatments include but are not limited to; soft tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point release, electrotherapy such
as Pulsed BioMagnetic therapy, Transelectical Stimulation (TENS) and Neuromuscular Stimulation (NMS). We are pleased to announce that we can now also offer LASER. Click here to find out more.
If your dog has had a spinal injury or neurological problem, treatment will also include movement analysis, proprioceptive input and functional tasks.
If your dog is being assessed at Dovecote this may also include the use of the underwater treadmill.
