What is Veterinary Physiotherapy?

Veterinary physiotherapy is the practice of using various manual techniques (such as massage), exercises and electrotherapies to reduce pain and improve function for animals. We work alongside your vet to help you and your four legged companion reach your goals no matter how big or small.

About Charlotte Bolding  

 Veterinary Physiotherapist BSc Hons  

I am a recent graduate bringing forward the latest knowledge and modern, evidence based physiotherapy practices. I have ridden from the age of 5 and have owned horses from 13 years old. I have also worked with a variety from a young age including with race horses in Australia. This also involved shadowing practitioners and accessing a broader field of techniques including the tellington (T-touch) method. 

I pride myself on incorporating a range of techniques tailored to your individual horses needs. I believe in providing above and beyond physical rehabilitation and therapy for the musculoskeletal system. My passion is firmly based in providing holistic and complete therapy to help horses and their people to understand each other and reach their full potential together.
