Animal Physiotherapy is an essential reference guide for physiotherapists looking to apply the proven benefits of physiotherapy to the treatment of companion and performance animals. Animal Physiotherapy is a growing profession of physiotherapists who have broadened their expertise from the well-established human sphere to animals. The positive perception of physiotherapy in the human sphere, together with an increased awareness of options and expertise available for animals has resulted in a strong demand for physiotherapy for animals.

For the physiotherapist this book provides essential applied background information on animal behaviour, nutrition, biomechanics and exercise physiology. For veterinarians and others who work with animals, the book reviews the scientific principles behind the practice of physiotherapy, and what it can achieve.


  • Includes reviews of different physiotherapy techniques, drawing on both human and animal literature;
  • Discusses approaches in small animal medicine as well as for elite equine athletes;
  • Includes applied evidence-based clinical reasoning model, providing case examples
