                                                             Veterinary Physiotherapy

The term ‘physiotherapy’ describes the treatment of injury or disease, or enhancement in performance, by physical means.

All physiotherapists work under veterinary referral, which is given by The Veterinary Surgery (Exemptions) Order 2015 (SI2015/772) in the Veterinary Surgeons Act (1966). This means all physiotherapists require a veterinary referral before seeing an animal.

You can ask your vet for a referral, or contact your physiotherapist first to get more information about physiotherapy, however your physiotherapist can only see your animal once they have received the referral.

What physiotherapy can do:

  • Assess animals to determine areas of pain or loss of function.

  • Use varying modalities and techniques to reduce pain, re-educate gait and restore function.

  • Enhance performance in elite animals.

  • Provide you with appropriate exercise and treatment programmes to get the best out of your animal.

Kirsty Brown BSc (Hons) Veterinary Physiotherapy MNAVP

Born and raised in Hampshire Kirsty always had a passion for animals. Growing up she spent all holidays gaining valuable experience working in various veterinary practices, kennels, stables and even a farm park.

Kirsty studied BSc (Hons) Veterinary Physiotherapy at Harper Adams University. Part of the degree incorporated a year-long industry placement for which Kirsty spent the majority at a flat-racing turned pre-training and rehabilitation yard in Surrey, followed by some time at a large small-animal practice in Staffordshire. It is this year Kirsty credits for gaining a love of racehorses and the racing industry. Kirsty will be forever grateful for those who allowed her such fantastic opportunities and for the invaluable lessons, experiences, and learning opportunities had during that time.

Following graduation Kirsty became a member of the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP), for which details can be found in the link below. Kirsty continues to enhance her education via continued professional development, attending courses and conferences to ensure use of the most up-to-date clinical reasoning for the most appropriate treatment for each client.
