As a responsible owner, it's important to recognise behavioral signs that may indicate discomfort and pain in your horse. Physiotherapy combination of manual therapies, equine massage tharpy and electrotherapies, physiotherapy reduces pain, improves joint mobility, and enhances muscular strength and condition.

By addressing specific conditions and injuries, physiotherapy promotes efficient rehabilitation and accelerates recovery time.
