What To Expect
Contacting Your Physio
You can contact Megan via her mobile, email or the link via this website and she get back to you around her client appointments You can also find her details listed on the ACPAT and RAMP websites. Megan will always ask to phone your vet for approval to treat your animal before your appointment.
An assessment includes getting information from you, the owner about the current problem, any history of treatment and what you would like to gain from physiotherapy. Megan will then look at how you or your animal moves and feels to determine what treatment would be best for you/your pet.
Treatment will comprise of various techniques to address the presenting complaint. It may involve hands on therapy, electrotherapy, neuromuscular stimulation, laser and exercise prescription. Home exercises will usually be given to carry over until the next treatment.
Megan will recommend a suitable length of time before your next treatment. Follow up appointments are important to monitor any changes in you/your animals functional presentation and address issues quickly before they become a problem.
Maintenance appointments are so useful for providing routine check ups to monitor you and your pets progress across the year, especially for competitive athletes. It it can be just as good for taking care of elderly patients on a routine basis to provide ongoing comfort.
