(More details will follow advising how you can book appointments with Maxine)

We are now delighted to be able to offer our clients bespoke physiotherapy programs for their dogs and small animals from Hunts Hill Physio.

Hunts Hill Physio is owned and run by Maxine Cooch, Chartered Physiotherapist, and specialist in animal physiotherapy. Maxine has been a qualified physiotherapist for over 10 years, working in a variety of environments from human physiotherapy and sports injury clinics in Loughborough to canine neurological referral centre in Derby. With her wealth of experience and knowledge you can be sure that your dog will experience the very best physiotherapy has to offer.

Could your dog benefit? The following is a list of ailments that could be helped by physiotherapy;

-Elbow/hip dysplasia
-Cranial cruciate injuries
-Patella luxation
-Post surgical rehabilitation (orthopaedic + neurological)
-Post fracture rehabilitation
-Soft tissue injuries (such as tendinopathies)
-Disc prolapses
-Nerve abnormalities
-Head injuries
-Vestibular disorders

Prior to your assessment Maxine will liaise with your veterinary practitioner to establish the main cause for concern. During your initial assessment you may be asked a number of questions to gain insight to your animal’s problems and the goals you may have. This could be anything from being able to toilet independently to improving your agility times and accuracy. A full physical examination is then performed from which a tailored treatment program can be determined. Your treatment program will be bespoke to you and your animal. Treatments include, but are not limited to;

-Soft tissue massage, trigger point release, myofascial release
-Joint mobilisations
-Electrotherapy including LASER
-Functional rehabilitation including range of movement, strengthening and proprioceptive exercise programs.

All physiotherapy techniques are evidence based and designed to promote tissue healing and pain relief.
