Mechanical injuries, such as fracture, twisting (sprain) or over-stretching manifest post-traumatic symptoms including lesions and edema.
Injuries cause a lot of negative effects, for example pain, swelling, restriction of movement and disturbed sensation. Major injuries can have a negative impact on animal’s posture and movement pattern, cause loss of function and elimination from training.
The rehabilitation program is individually tailored to the needs of the horse, and it aims to restore his health as quickly as possible and bring the horse back to his normal physical activity and performance.
A key to successful restoring a lost function is the cooperation of the horse owner and the physiotherapist.
Post-traumatic injuries I deal with include:
- overload syndromes in muscles, ligaments, tendons (strains)
- contusions and bruises – joints and tissues (traffic accidents, falls)
- tension, tear, rupture (ligaments, tendons)
The purpose of my physiotherapeutic procedures is to ensure the fastest, correct and most effective return to the physical activity of a horse after a surgery.
My post-surgery rehabilitation program aims to prevent the negative effects of a surgery, such as pain, swelling, scars, limited mobility, muscle weakness and muscular atrophy. Also, while working with the patient, I focus on the psychical comfort of an animal and I try to get the patient to actively participate in the treatments.
