Welcome to Equine Physio Services…

Equine Physio Services are dedicated to the provision of chartered physiotherapy for the needs of both horses and riders in the north of England. As a completely mobile service, we travel to the client to provide advanced veterinary physiotherapy assessment and treatment following referral from the veterinarian. As chartered physiotherapists specialising in veterinary physiotherapy practice, we utilise clinically reasoned and evidence based approaches to enhance the movement and comfort of the horse while also offering musculoskeletal physiotherapy for riders.

Physiotherapy is an established health care profession in the UK, with formal routes requiring degree level qualification. The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) is the regulatory body that governs all formal health care practice in the UK. The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy regulates physiotherapy in the UK. Membership of both regulatory bodies means that we are qualified, insured and required to provide evidence of continuous professional development.

Veterinary physiotherapy requires an extended, post graduate level of qualification, meaning that all practising clinicians are required to firstly undertake chartered physiotherapy qualification in human practice.

Post graduate study is then required to qualify as a veterinary physiotherapist and become a Category A member of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy (ACPAT).

By referring to a Chartered & Veterinary Physiotherapist you can ensure that the physiotherapist is regulated by the HCPC, CSP and ACPAT, meaning that the level of qualification and standard is monitored and continuously maintained via submission of evidence of continuous professional development.

Faith really cares about her work and the horses. Without her I know my horse wouldn't feel as good as he does! I wouldn't recommend anyone else!
