Physiotherapy

We offer a physiotherapy service to patients as part of the multi-disciplinary team at the Diagnostic Centre.

Physiotherapy can assist horses in a variety of ways including:

  • Detailed assessment as part of a poor performance/lameness work ups
  • Performance enhancement
  • In the treatment and prevention of injury
  • Provision of individualised rehabilitation programmes following illness, injury or surgery.

This service is offered by Katharine (Kate) Stephens, who is a Chartered Physiotherapist, specialising in Equine Physiotherapy. Kate has extensive experience as both a human and equine Physiotherapist and now works as a consultant to the Rossdales veterinary team on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. She is able to see horses both onsite and locally within a fifteen-mile radius of Newmarket.

Insurance companies will normally cover the cost of physiotherapy when under veterinary advice and supervision – but please check your policy beforehand.

To discuss or make an appointment, email physio@rossdales.com or telephone Carly Briggs/Sally Green at the Diagnostic Centre on 01638 577754.
