Surrey Vet Physio gives customers more!
Freelance veterinary physiotherapist Helen Morrell, from Surrey Vet Physio, has taken the forward thinking step of producing easy to follow instructional videos, showing stretching exercises and massage techniques used in her physiotherapy sessions.
Helen is fully qualified, regulated and insured, and offers a mobile physiotherapy service in the South East, travelling to horses, dogs and cats across Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire. Furnished with the latest mobile equipment, such as Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF), Transcutaneous Electrical Neuro Stimulation (TENS), Interferential Therapy, H-Wave, Therapeutic Ultrasound and Phototherapy, Helen combines her in-depth knowledge and manual therapy with other treatments depending on the animal’s condition. During physiotherapy sessions, owners are often given stretches and exercises that they can do with their animals, to help promote recovery, and this is what the videos show.
“We’ve all been in the situation where, at the time, we fully understand a given task but, the next day, when we come to do it, there are a few grey areas,” says Helen. “This can be very frustrating, especially when you know how important it is to do the task correctly, and that’s the same with massage and stretches. I often leave my customers with exercises they can do with their horse or dog, and I feel that the videos are a great back up to this. They show how to do the stretches with helpful audio that explains exactly what should be done. Of course, I’m always at the end of the phone to offer additional help, but sometimes a picture, or a moving picture in the case of video, can do the job much better!”
Surrey Vet Physio offers those interested in using Helen a free initial consultation. At this time, the animal can be assessed and a treatment plan created whilst the animal’s owner and vet can assess the service on offer and make sure that they are comfortable. Any treatment given at time of initial consultation and follow up sessions are chargeable.
