Manual therapy involves a variety of soft tissue techniques such as massage, joint mobilisations and stretching used for both evaluating and treating patients.
Specialised manual skills are used to assess soft tissue abnormalities, muscles tightness, joint arthrokinematic restrictions and range of motion.
Therapeutic massage is used to treat muscle tension and tightness which occur secondary to joint and neurological diseases. It includes a variety of techniques:
Massage stimulates endorphins which help to manage pain and decrease anxiety. We often use massage along with thermal therapy to relax the patient and warm the muscles to enhance the effect of any stretching, range of motion or exercises and ensure the patients gain the most from other forms of therapy we incorporate.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease, which means that it gets progressively worse. How advanced is osteoarthritis in your dog, cat or rabbit? Your pet’s stage of arthritis will determine the steps you can take to alleviate their pain.
