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:
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 can liaise with your usual trainer to achieve the full potential for your horse.
