Welcome to Hannah Price's Physiotherapy Website

 

Welcome to my Website! I am a Chartered Physiotherapist treating Horses, Riders, Dogs and Cats in Mid Wales and Herefordshire.

I am a Category A Member of ACPAT (Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy) and am a registered member of the CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy). I am insured and regulated by both societies.

  

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is an evidence based health profession which helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible following injury, illness or by developmental or other disability.

 


How do I know if my animal needs Physiotherapy?
Animals are unable to tell us where they are in pain and are often clever at hiding their discomfort. Schooling problems, behavioural problems or reduced performance can all be caused by pain, muscle weakness or joint stiffness.
 
Animals, like people respond well to physiotherapy techniques and modalities that may include joint mobilisation, massage, specific rehabilitation programmes, electro-therapeutic modalities and exercise programmes. 
 
Physiotherapy intervention can limit the impact of injury and disease processes, optimize healing potential and accelerate return to function and/or performance.
 
Physiotherapy can help animals suffering from a variety of conditions such as back pain, sprains, strains, fractures and sporting injuries. Physiotherapy can also help restore function following orthopaedic, neurological or general surgery. In the performance animal physiotherapy can improve biomechanics and athletic ability.
