Case Study: Tommy


Tommy is a working bull who became unable to do what Bulls do! After examination, Tommy was diagnosed with arthritis in his hips and taking his weight onto his hind limbs to ‘service his heifers’ became too painful.

After the first treatment Tommy broke out of his isolation pen to make his way back to his ladies.

Tommy was signed off after 4 treatments as he was much more comfortable, mobile and happily out with his girls again doing what he should be doing.

Tommy had a top up physiotherapy treatment just under a year later and remaind healthy and active.
