Common Equine Conditions

These are a sample of equine conditions that can benefit from physiotherapy.  I will liaise with vets, farriers, equine dentists, etc. to develop a suitable treatment program on an individual basis.

  • Kissing spines – conservative and post-surgical management
  • Back problems including saddle related issues
  • Acute or chronic injuries to muscle, bone, tendon, ligament
  • Joint problems and diseases
  • Muscular imbalances – atrophy, asymmetric muscle development
  • Pain management
  • Wound management
  • Age related issues – stiffness, reduced function & weakness
  • Post surgery rehabilitation
  • Obesity
  • Hoof issues – high heel/low heel, hoof asymmetry, club foot, etc.
  • Dentistry problems causing TMJ issues & other compensatory issues
