Veterinary Physiotherapy is utilised as part of an animal’s comprehensive health routine, in addition to conventional medicine. Physiotherapy benefits a wide range of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions, all of which are supported by a growing body of scientific literature.
Sessions utilise a number of techniques, including soft tissue massage and mobilisation, electrotherapeutic modalities, therapeutic exercises and remedial exercise prescription - all of which aid in enhancing recovery, increasing mobility and improving performance.
At the age of eight Lauren began volunteering at a local horse rescue centre, completely unaware that this would be the start of a lifetime passion and commitment to animal health and wellbeing. Never too far away from horses, Lauren can often be found with her loan horse Jake, a 14.2hh Welsh section D, and her labradoodle, Bella. As an owner herself, Lauren understands the trials and tribulations of pet ownership. Following a short but successful agility career, Bella was diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia where regular physiotherapy and hydrotherapy were pursued. Amazed at the significant influence physiotherapy had on the management of her condition ultimately directed Lauren towards her current career as a veterinary physiotherapist.
At LTVP, we aim to remove tension and pain through various electrotherapy and manual therapy techniques. Animals are only able to function to the level that their bodies allow. When we alleviate discomfort, we provide them the best opportunity to build the correct musculature required to reach their full functional ability. In doing so, we are able to not only enhance their well-being but ultimately improve their overall performance.
