Firstly, the animal’s medical history is taken, along with details their management (shoeing, tack, dentistry, turnout) as it may affect their physiotherapeutic management. The initial assessment then comprises observing posture, gait, behaviour and movement patterns. Then a physical assessment tests range of movement, palpation, and any further special tests. The horse or animal must have a competent handler to ensure safety and welfare of all involved. 

Treatments depend on the assessment findings, and may involve discussion of management plans, soft tissue work (including myofascial release, trigger point therapy, reflex inhibition), joint mobilisations, electrotherapy (PEMF, TENS, muscle stimulation, LASER), exercise prescription and/or taping (including Kinesio taping).

As with all animals, the current Veterinarian is first consulted, to discuss the animal’s history and veterinary treatment plan, which ensures safest and most effective practice for the animal’s welfare. The initial assessment then includes observation of postures, gait, behaviour and movement patterns. Then a physical assessment includes palpation, range of movement, specific joint and muscle testing, and neurological assessment if relevant. As part of assessment often looks for a source of pain, the animal must have a competent handler to ensure minimal stress to the animal and safety of all involved.  

Treatment options depend on assessment findings, and can include exercise prescription, neuro rehab, soft tissue work, joint mobilisations, electrotherapy, taping, splinting, and discussion of management plans liaising with the vet.
