Remedial Exercises and Rehabilitation
Remedial exercise programmes are used to aid a quicker return to function and can be tailored to the specific condition and the time and facilities available.
They can also be used to improve performance.
Some techniques include:
Kinesio taping and Proprioceptive taping
Long reining and lunging for the horse, this may include use of specialist equipment
Wobble cushions and physio balls to develop core strength in the dog
During the physiotherapy session I will discuss suitability of methods and demonstrate them clearly. You will be given a written plan to follow until your next session.
In most equine cases the remedial exercise plan will be integrated into your normal exercise routine. I will liaise with your usual trainer to achieve the full potential for your horse.
