From personal experience, I understand how frustrating and stressful the rehabilitation process can be after an injury.
Many clients often feel that there is no clear path laid out for them and are left wondering when will the rehab ever end.
If this is you, I can help by providing and acting on a clear rehab plan tailored specifically to your horse's injury to get you well on the way to recovery.
Whether your aim is to get back out competing, to hack out down the lanes, or simply to enjoy spending time with your horse again, I can help you to achieve this goal.
Treatment plans vary depending on your horse's injury. I will work closely with your vet to discuss the best options for each individual case. Treatment may include:
Drug-free pain management strergies
Relieving muscle tension
H-wave treatment to increase blood flow lymphatic drainage and aid in soft tissue issues
Week by week exercise plans aiming towards returning back to your exercise goals
Promoting the correct healing of damaged tissues
Safely accelerating the healing process
Nutrition and supplement advice
Weight management on box rest or restricted turnout

Do I need to be there?
You do not need to attend every session unless you want to as long as you are happy for me to have access to any tack or specific equipment needed for the sessions. I will also obviously need access to your horse. For this reason, I ask that you attend the first session.
Do I need to book an initial assessment session?
Yes. New clients will need to book an initial assessment session so that a personalised treatment plan can be created
Do I need a vet referral form?
Yes. All rehabilitation clients must have a signed referral form from their veterinary surgeon. This is so that I can discuss the full workup and diagnosis with your vet and keep them informed of the progress.
