Case Study: Flo


Flo is a 13 year old border collie with chronic arthritis. From being a lively, active dog, Flo had begun isolating herself from the other dogs and managing only 10 minute walks before lying down and refusing to go further.

Her triceps, thoracolumbar, bicep femoris, semi-membranosus and semi tendinosus muscles had become very tight and restrictive to her movement.

After just the first session of physiotherapy, Flo’s owner reported that she had become more active and wasn’t so worried about being around the other dogs. After completing the course, Flo is now up and running with her friends and her owner is struggling to tire her out!
