WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE CONSULTATION?
In addition to completing a history form, we may ask questions and discuss details further to get a better understanding of what may be going on.
We will have a good feel over the whole body, to make note of any unnoticed lumps, bumps, heat swelling or cuts.
During the initial appointment we will want to observe your animal standing, in walk and trot to identify any specific areas that require treatment and to ensure the animal is sound. On occasion we may request to see horses ridden or lunged, depending on the issues presenting and the facilities available.
All treatments will include a full body massage and chiropractic manipulation. Additional techniques including LED light therapy, kinesiology taping, passive stretching will be used dependant on the individual needs.
Treatments will be tailored to each individuals need and can be adapted for those who have physical or behavioural limitations.
At the end of each session we will go through findings during the treatment and how best to maximise the effects with appropriate recommended stretches and tailored exercise plans suited to each individual.
Follow-up treatments will be recommended based on the individuals lifestyle, workload and competition schedule.
Each treatment will be formally written up to document progression. Reports along with any media taken during the appointment, will be forwarded to the client and if require to the registered/ referring vet and other professionals.
