Humans have been using physiotherapy treatment or relief of back pain, tendon and muscle injuries, and after surgery, for over 100 years. Animals can benefit from this treatment too. Physiotherapy treatment such as massage, stretches, exercises, ultrasound, laser, and muscle stimulation are all available to animals. Horses, dogs and cats commonly receive physiotherapy but any species may benefit.
