Our in-clinic facilities

Offering a range of in-clinic facilities and treatments allows Petffisio to effectively treat a whole range of ailments. Our treatments are all aimed at improving your pet’s healing process.

  • 1

    Kinesio Taping

    Helping to reduce and control pain, manage swelling and oedema (swelling from injury or inflammation), increase joint range of motion, and improve muscle function.

  • 2

    Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy

    We use equipment that emits controlled energy waves which work with your body’s natural magnetic field to improve healing. The magnetic fields help the animal to increase electrolytes and ions. This naturally influences electrical changes on a cellular level and influences cellular metabolism.

    The scientific evidence is that PEMF therapy is effective because it conveys ‘information’ that triggers specific repair activities within the body. The currents induced in tissues by PEMF mimic the natural electrical activities created within bones during movements.

    Gym balls / Wobble cushions / Therabands – Core stability and strength training

    During rehabilitation, most patients have experienced a time of immobility or disuse of a limb and muscle groups. This can have a significant impact overall on core stability and strength. Core stability can be challenged targeting the major supportive muscles groups of the limbs, trunk and spine. These modalities are also very beneficial for ‘fine-tuning’ smaller muscles groups used for more intricate movements.

  • 4

    Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

    TENS is the use of an electric current generated by a device and delivered through adhesive electrodes placed on the skin of the patient stimulating nerves to provide pain relief. TENS works most effectively when it is introduced early in the postoperative or injury phase. It can be applied for up to 8 hours per day and is very well tolerated in conscious patients.

    Laser Therapy Class 3B

    Phototherapy commonly know as Laser therapy is a well researched practice that applies light in a therapeutic capacity. Light energy is absorbed by mitochondria and chromophores into the cells which leads to an increase immune response.

    Bones, ligaments, soft tissue, tendons, skin, nerves and wounds.

    Stimulates healing, facilitates healing process, increases cell function, stimulates immune system, pain reduction in nerves, joints, muscles and tendons, reduces inflammation, improves circulation, lowers cholesterol, antibacterial effect, promotes nerve regeneration.

    Ultrasound Therapy

    Long wave therapeutic ultrasound exploits that heating and vibrational effects of ultra-high frequency sound waves to stimulate tissue regeneration. A layer of aqueous gel is used to ensure contact to the treatment area, to reduce reflection at the skin surface, ensuring maximum effect is applied to deeper tissues.

    Ultrasound Therapy us used for the rehabilitation of soft tissue, ligaments, tendons, and skin.

    It reduces muscle spasms, increases flexibility of ligaments, tendons, and scar tissue, improves the healing of soft tissue.

    All these services are included in veterinary physiotherapy appointments after clinical evaluation.

    Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)

    Elicitation of muscle contraction using electrical impulses in a similar manner to EMS and used in a more advanced phase of rehabilitation to increase strength and endurance of particular muscles.

    Albert first time in hydrotherapy tread Mill rosie was brilliant she has such a lovely way Albert was so at ease with Rosie carnt thank you enough

  • Julia Hewerdine 3 years ago

    Excellent knowledge and treatment of my horses. I have used Rosy to both improve performance and to assist in injury recovery. In both circumstances the treatment given played a vital role in the outcome. Her knowledge is excellent, explaining as she went and left us with exercises to assist further. Thoroughly recommend.

    Fantastic service from Rosy, she has been working with our Border Collie for some months who had a soft tissue shoulder injury. Our dog has now fully recovered. As she is a Flyball Dog she will be fit to resume her athletic life when Covid restrictions lift. We will be continuing to use Rosy's services monthly to ensure that our pet stays well. We would have not hesitation in recommending Rosy to anyone

    Rosy did a full assessment on our young active dobermann P, and specifically with regards to her movement for mantrailing and canicross. Rosy checked how she moved in general and also in each of her harnesses.. P is over enthusiastic at the best of times, in fact she is a total nutter... but Rosy has a fab calm approach which really helps to settle her and get her to focus. She also wasn't put off by 36kg of muddy dobe saying hi at eye level! Rosy keeps it simple...explains the cause and how it affects movement...goes over each exercise clearly in the session. We also really like the back up email summary which we print off and use as our daily checklist. Brill for those of us with a memory like a sieve. P has shown a big improvement after the first session, and the different treatments Rosy used. We are really enjoying fitting the exercises in to our routines at home...they seem to tire her brain out too, which is an added bonus. Very happy to have found Rosy...and have already recommended to a friend!

    Pip once again, overstretched on an old injury and I noticed he was lame on Tuesday. On Thursday Rosy saw him and treated him and within 24 hours his gait was back to normal.. Exercise regime given by email and instructions on how to proceed for the next 2 weeks. Excellent service, prompt, reliable and an expert when it comes to handling all animals. Highly recommended without hesitation.
