Equine Physiotherapy - FAQs

What does equine physiotherapy involve?

  • Static assessment - Assessing your horse's conformation, posture, muscle symmetry, hoof health and any obvious signs of injury is vital prior to dynamic assessment.

  • Dynamic assessment

    • walk and trot on hard surface

    • walk and trot on soft surface (if appropriate and suitable ground available)

    • on lunge (if required and suitable ground available)

    • rein back and small circles

    • neurological assessment (if required)

  • Head-to-hoof hands-on assessment - To assess for palpable changes to joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons.

  • Joint Range of Motion - Assessment of both spinal and limb range of motion 

  • Treatment - A variety of treatment techniques may be used, including advice, education, hands-on manual therapy, electrotherapy (laser, neuromuscular electrical stimulation and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) and other therapeutic techniques.

  • Exercise Programme - A tailored exercise programme will be prescribed for your horse. This may include standing exercises, groundwork, polework or ridden exercises.

What do I need to do to prepare my horse for your visit?

Please make sure your horse is dry and lightly groomed for their assessment, as unfortunately hands-on assessment cannot be done on wet and/or muddy coats.

Can I ride my horse after they've been treated?

If your horse has been treated, we highly recommend that your horse is not ridden the following day but groundwork can be commenced.

Will my horse's physiotherapy be covered by insurance?

Every insurance policy is different - so always check your policy by giving them a call.
