Jayne is a fully qualified veterinary physiotherapist based in Dunblane providing an independent and professional veterinary physiotherapy service throughout Central Scotland.

Jayne founded 'JF:Vet Physio' in 2011 and since then has treated a variety of small & large animals with the main focus being towards dogs & horses. She currently splits her time between her base at Cromlix Home Farm & freelance visits.

Physiotherapy is a highly recognised and accepted profession within human medicine and is now growing in demand within the veterinary world due to the wealth of benefits it can provide for animals.  For animals, physiotherapy can:
      • Provide pain relief.
      • Encourage soft tissue, bone or nerve repair.
      • Provide post-operative rehabilitation.
      • Help prevent future injury.
      • Optimise athletic performance.
      • Re-educate compensatory movement.

What is involved in a physiotherapy appointment?

  • An initial static visual assessment - here the overall conformation of the animal and any asymmetries are noted.

  • Dynamic Assessment - also know as gait analysis where the animals way of moving is assessed.  This is often carried out on the ground mainly at walk and trot including straight lines or circles.  Some horses may also need to be lunged or ridden to gain a true understanding of their movement.

  • Your animal is then palpated from head to toe in order to highlight any areas requiring attention.  These areas can be directly and indirectly associated to the condition referred by the vet or completely unrelated.  Either way, anything found is treated with veterinary permission in accordance with the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966.

  • Finally, after the initial visit, a treatment plan and individually tailored exercise program will be put in place to address your animals needs.  A report will be filled out with every visit and a copy given to the owner and the referring veterinary surgeon.

*** Many pet insurance companies do cover veterinary physiotherapy, please check with your individual insurers. ***

What physiotherapy techniques are used?

Jayne will use a combination of manual techniques, electrotherapies and therapeutic exercise in order to address any issues highlighted in the initial assessment.  The modality selected depends on the area of the animal being treated and the desired affect required.
