What will happen at an assessment?
Prior to assessment it is required by law that the treating Chartered Veterinary Physiotherapist gain consent from the animal’s veterinary surgeon. Members of ACPAT adhere to this requirement to ensure the safety of the animal and for insurance purposes. This will be done by the Physiotherapist and is included as part of the assessment process. This opens a line of communication between Veterinary Surgeon and Physiotherapist which is greatly beneficial for the discussion of findings and possible progression of treatment as a multidisciplinary team.
Initial assessment – This first session includes a full assessment, treatment and prescription of a home exercise programme.
- A detailed history of the animal will be taken including information on the current problem, past medical history, previous treatment and any medication along with what the animal’s day to day routine is and any work they are in.
- A thorough palpation (hands on feel) of the muscles, joints and joint range of movements.
- Treatment and prescription of a exercise programme.
Treatments used include;
Soft tissue release techniques, deep tissue massage, joint mobilisations, stretching, exercise programmes both in session and as a home programme, electrotherapy including NMES, LASER, PEME and ultrasound.
