Why Choose Peak Equine Rehab
A physical therapist is a licensed healthcare provider achieving a Doctorate level of education with extensive knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics, and they are rehabilitation specialists. Rehabilitation is still developing in the animal world but can benefit animals the same as humans. Physical therapists are trained as evidence-based practitioners treating their patients with the best methods to promote healing and recovery. The physical therapy scope of practice includes soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, healing and pain relief modalities, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular re-education, strength and conditioning progressions, and gait analysis. In the state of Montana, physical therapists require a referral form signed by the veterinarian which promotes a multidisciplinary approach to provide the highest quality of care and communication. If your horse is injured, lame, post-surgical, deconditioned or you want to find them the best recovery tools available, call Peak Equine Rehab to schedule an appointment.
