Treatments We Offer

R E C Veterinary Physiotherapy offer a range of treatments that can be performed on every animal.

Massage

Massage is a great physiotherapy treatment and can be incorporated into every treatment plan regardless of the diagnosis.

Passive Range of Motion

PROM exercises involve moving a limb through its full range of motion without assistance from the animal, and are typically used in cases of recumbency, muscle inactivity and muscle atrophy

Stretching

Stretching is beneficial in improving muscle and joint flexibility, increasing joint range of motion and reducing tension in tight muscles whilst also increasing their tensile strength which reduces the risk of injury.

Red Light Therapy

Working deep down within the body’s cells, red light therapy (RLT) works to speed up healing within bones, nerves, soft tissues and many more aspects of the body.

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation

“NMES uses electrical currents to cause the fibres of the target muscle to contract, helping prevent and reverse muscle wastage and increase the strength of the treated muscles.

Cryotherapy (Cold Therapy)

Cryotherapy, or cold therapy, helps to reduce swelling and bruising in any condition in any animal. The cold sensation restricts the blood flow to the area which prevents the build up of excessive fluid (swelling) and blood (bruising).

Home Exercise Programmes

As part of your animal’s physiotherapy treatment plan, you may be prescribed some exercises and activities to do at home with your animal between physiotherapy appointments.

Thermal Therapy (Heat Therapy)

Contrary to cryotherapy, thermal or heat therapy increases the amount of blood flow to the tissues, removing ‘bad’ chemicals and toxins and replacing them with large quantities of nutrients and ‘good’ chemicals, to help speed up healing and reduce pain.

Remedial Exercises

Exercises are an important part of rehabilitation. Strengthening exercises challenge the animal’s muscle strength and balance through a range of activities, such as cavaletti rails, weaving, weight–shifting, stair climbing and sit–to–stands.
