Are you unsure how physio can help animals post-op and post injury or for long term conditions? I am happy to come to do a talk and presentation to your surgery. I will answer any questions you have and show how research for rehabilitation in people is relevant and can be adapted to animals for better outcomes both short and long term. Or just call me to chat about a particular case and we can see if physio is relevant.
