Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. Physiotherapists achieve this through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice (CSP). Just like a person, horses can suffer from a range of different musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Equine physiotherapy can help to relieve pain and provide exercise and rehabilitation in order to enhance recovery, or can be used to improve performance on prevent injury.

Why choose an ACPAT veterinary physiotherapist?
The titles “veterinary physiotherapist” or “animal physiotherapist” are not protected by law, meaning that anyone can call themselves a veterinary or animal physiotherapist, regardless of qualifications or training. However, ACPAT veterinary physiotherapists are members of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy.
