Referral and treatment at Wear Referrals is sometimes just the first step. We can also assist with the process of recovery from disease, injury or surgery.
This includes the management of pain and restoring normal movement patterns. We provide comprehensive aftercare following spinal and orthopaedic surgery. This is done in partnership with our resident physiotherapists and hydrotherapists. Whilst in hospital patients will receive physiotherapy, massage and hydrotherapy which can continue after they have been discharged. Research has shown that physiotherapy can work with the animals natural healing capabilities to ensure optimal recovery.
At Wear Referrals we have a team of highly qualified and experienced physiotherapists. They are members of the Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners and their professional bodies including ACPAT and NAVP. They work closely with the veterinary teams at Wear Referrals and use evidence based practice to assess, clinically reason, treat and develop bespoke rehabilitation programmes.
