"A" - Assessment (評估)

Assessment is the first step in physiotherapy. It includes analysing the pet’s ability and function when they stand, walk and sit. 

We call this gait analysis. We need to assess the whole musculoskeletal system- which includes the bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. We also need to assess the neurological system which controls the overall ability of the pet to move. This helps us to develop a working diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.

評估是物理治療的第一步。 評估首先包括分析站立,行走和坐下時的能力。 我們稱之為步態分析。然後我們需要評估整個肌肉骨骼系統 - 包括骨骼,關節,肌肉,肌腱和韌帶。最後再評估神經系統。這有助於我們作出準確的診斷並制定治療計劃。

"Q" - Quality of Life (生活質量)

Physiotherapy helps to improve pet quality of life, especially in older pets with mobility issues. That’s because we focus on reliving their pain, strengthening their muscles and providing solutions to helping them more easily do their daily activities.
