Both pet dogs and working/sporting dogs can suffer from acute injuries (bony or soft tissue) as well as conditions such as hip dysplasia or arthritis that will need longer-term management. These conditions may occur in young or older dogs and some may require surgery. Physiotherapy plays an important part in the management of these conditions and, alongside the veterinary input, it can help to improve or maintain a dog’s level of function.


Dogs can also have neurological problems such as spinal cord injuries from ‘slipped discs’. This can have varying effects from reducing balance and coordination to severe immobility affect. Physiotherapy can help a dog to regain the skills they have lost by facilitating their normal way of moving.
