What does a massus/physiotherapist brings to your horse compared to an equine osteopath?
Hello Emily,
At the beginning of each treatment, the equine physiotherapist requests information about the horse and then the palpate to detect the areas to be treated. Once he has determined the problem, he guides the animal to perform a series of strengthening and relaxing exercises. At the end of each session he writes a written report. The work does not stop there: as for humans, the effects are felt on several sessions.
Tans say that the osteopath, it realizes the observation and practices the external manipulation to define the locomotive troubles and the imbalances of the horse. He may also make a diagnosis with a veterinarian to determine the origin of the disorder. And it carries out manipulations intended to relieve the animal
These two trades have four common points the person who does these trades there must: have a great knowledge of the anatomy of the horse, be in love with animals, have a good physical condition and have great dexterity.
Bye,
