Human Physiotherapy

As chartered human physiotherapists, we offer a service that aims to improve the quality and function of movement and mobility. We can tailor treatment and rehabilitation programs that will optimise recovery from injury while also offering advice for long term maintenance. Our service applies to all individuals, not just riders so please call us today to discuss your needs.

Assessment

Physiotherapy assessment and treatment

initial consultation: 1 hour
Follow up 45 minutes

Full body MOTs

We will assess you from top to toe. This will include objective measurement of joint range of motion, pelvic angles and gait assessment as well as treatment and advice. Following on from this a full report is produced along with advice sheet outlining recommendations, exercises and future management.

Rider specific MOTs

We offer a complete biomechanical assessment of you both on land and on your horse using a range of objective joint measurements, postural observation and gait analysis. A full rider MOT requires 2 separate appointments, one for you in our treatment room and the other at your home or yard to observe riding position. Our assessment is unique in the fact that we measure pelvic angle both on and off the horse using our Sub4 inclinometer to give and accurate comparison of rider compensatory patterns. We then produce a detailed report and exercise plan.

Testimonials

  • "Faith has given me greater knowledge in body awareness and core muscle strength which has led to me and my horse's working better as a team.I would recommend that all horse riders should go for an assessment with Faith - there will be a clear difference in your riding position afterwards!It is paramount my horses are happy and comfortable in order to produce optimum performances. She is very professional in her treatments, providing you with good feedback, and making sure you know what you are doing with the exercises she leaves you to do afterwards.”

She has worked with me on a number of my injuries in the past, on my rehab and also fitness drills to regain my match fitness. Faith's knowledge, experience and professionalism is top class and it has been a pleasure to have had the chance to work with her.

  • Professional riding instructor and British Dressage competitor. Faith has been treating my horse for over a year now, she has helped me so much to achieve what I have with him when everyone else wrote him off due to his conformation. 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!
