  liz hadland: introduction   Why use physiotherapy?
Today we are all aware of the importance of looking after our bodies to avoid the discomfort of stiff joints and muscular aches and pains.

Increasingly, many owners are realising that their horses may be suffering similar problems which could affect their competitive performance too. After all, an observant owner can tell when their horse is 'not quite right', unable or unwilling to work with its normal enthusiasm; although there are often no signs of lameness or other symptoms.

At such a time, a visit from a chartered physiotherapist could make all the difference between winning and losing next time out.

Chartered physiotherapists are:
1. First choice profession for veterinary referral
2. Covered and approved by insurance companies (always check your policy)

1. Massage and mobilise both soft tissues (muscles, tendons etc) and joints
