Improving quality of life

Our Physiotherapy Clinic is run by Gina Siwicki from Affinity Veterinary Physiotherapy who is a member of ACPAT, the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy. Gina’s training has given her a thorough understanding of muscular skeletal injuries, orthopaedics, rehabilitation and neurology in dogs.

Signs your dog may need physiotherapy include:

  • Difficulty getting up and down from the floor
  • Difficulty using stairs
  • Stiff after laying down or after exercise
  • Change in behaviour including reluctance to perform usual activities
  • Change in performance in sporting dogs
  • Licking/chewing of joints
  • Restlessness
  • Panting (when not hot)

What to expect

Therapy is always planned and delivered on a case-by-case basis. As well as your dog’s condition, we also consider their medical history, breed and lifestyle.

Treatments include:

  • Advice on environment and exercise regimes
  • Manual treatment to muscles and joints – reduce pain, improve movement and function
  • Tailored exercise programmes – stretches, strengthening and balance
  • TEN’s and Neuro-muscular stimulation – reduce pain, improve muscle strength.
  • Splints or joint supports – can also be used to help manage long-term conditions.
