Discover Rider physiotherapy

Rider physiotherapy can not only help you to recover from injury but can also help prevent injury and improve performance through rider profiling.

Rider profiling

Rider profiling involves assessing you as a rider, looking at your symmetry, flexibility, strength and balance as is specifically required for riding. Following assessment you will be given an individualised programme that targets any problem areas identified. By improving your position and balance on your horse you will help to improve your horse's movement and transitions.

A session  includes assessment, treatment and an individualised home exercise plan.

Recovery from injury

Chartered physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. 

If you suffer from pain or are recovering from an injury or surgery physiotherapy can help to restore function and optimise your recovery so you can get back in the saddle as soon as possible without compromising your horse.

Following assessment an individualised treatment programme is carried out.
