Physiotherapy for animals can be used alongside veterinary care to help in the treatment or long-term management of many musculoskeletal or neurological injuries and conditions. It can assist rehabilitation of the animal, with the aims of reducing pain, improving movement, and restoring normal muscle control and function.
Sophie is currently undertaking the final aspect of her MSc, a dissertation involving canine arthritis and the way it is diagnosed and treated. At home, Sophie can be found with Lola, a 3-year-old golden Labrador who loves to swim!
