Grappenhall and Freckleton
Great news, we have restarted the canine physiotherapy and hydrotherapy clinic at Grappenhall. At present the clinics are on Fridays.
We have a new clinic at Freckleton (WA10 3AS) where Amy will be based on Monday afternoons.
At both clinics we can provide both land-based physiotherapy and hydrotherapy to suit the needs and requirements of your dog’s rehabilitation.
If Holt is more suitable or more convenient we can provide land-based physiotherapy here too.
Physiotherapy and hydrotherapy is such a valuable tool in your dog’s recovery from injury. Here is a list of common conditions which we treat:
- Hip/elbow dysplasia
- Rehabilitation following orthopaedic surgery like cruciate repairs, hip replacements, femoral head osteotomies
- Osteoarthritis and age related joint issues
- Soft tissue injuries to tendon, ligament and muscle
- Rehabilitation following spinal surgery
- Conservative treatment for neurological and orthopaedic conditions
- Healing of wounds, scar tissue and oedema
- Fittening programmes for weight loss
- Sporting injuries, return to and maintenance of sporting fitness
If your dog displays any of the signs below, he or she may benefit from physiotherapy:
- Difficulty getting up and down
- Behavioural changes
- Different gait or shortened stride
- Uncharacteristic behaviour
- Decrease in energy levels
- Becoming unwilling to be touched or groomed
- Difficulty/unwillingness to jump into the car
- Excessive licking of limbs
