Dublin Veterinary Physiotherapy uses a variety of manual therapies in order to reduce tightness, increase suppleness, reduce pain and increase performance.
Dublin Veterinary Physiotherapy provides a range of electrotherapy services such as Laser, Short Wave Ultrasound, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, TENS, NMES, Heat and Cold therapy.
Prescribed remedial exercise implementation allows for a progression and increase in performance, due to an increase in strength, balance and proprioception.
60 – 90 minutes
This will involve a full static and dynamic assessment of your horse, including spinal, neurological and range of motion assessments. Following this, a treatment plan will be put in place, using manual techniques, electrotherapy treatment and remedial exercise. A rehabilitation plan is issued to you after the consultation, in order to allow your horse to progress at home.
Following your horse’s initial assessment and treatment, any subsequent treatments (for the same condition) will be at a reduced rate. These sessions will still include a full assessment and physiotherapy treatments.
A 10% discount is available when 3 or more horses from one yard book in together.
*Please note, an additional charge of €0.50 per km will apply for call-outs beyond 15km of Dublin 13.
Hannah from Dublin Veterinary Physiotherapy really helped our pony improve after a kissing spine diagnosis. He now seems a lot more comfortable and willing to work. We will be back!
