Cows can have physiotherapy too!



Cow receiving physiotherapy! Really enjoyed it and felt so much better afterwards!Meet Highridge Eternity

A farmer in Swindon shows some of his cows. He went to a show and sadly Highridge didn’t win. He was told by the judge that he probably would have won if his gait was good. However he was throwing his left hind out.

So the farmer called to see if there was anything physiotherapy could do to help. There certainly is. Donna has a farming background from before her nursing years and so was able to draw on this knowledge and with some extra research and investigation during the session, a solution was concluded and physiotherapy was delivered.

The farmer was given a home exercise regime to follow, which he did.

When the case was followed up a week later, the farmer reported that “Highridge was better immediately following the session”, and with the guidance given she has stayed sound in movement. He said “you can give yourself a pat on the back for that one” and he has also recommended us to the other farmers at the show, even though there was a lot of surprise when he told them he had sought help form an animal physiotherapist.

Highridge was a wonderful patient to work on!
