Rider Assessment (1hr) takes place at Lisa Ives Osteopathys’ Clinic, RG17 0RE.
Equine Assessment (45mins) takes place at the registered stabled address.
During our first visit we will gather a thorough case history including relevant medical history, as well as discussing aims and ambitions for you and your horse.
Osteopaths are trained to examine areas of the body using a highly-developed sense of touch known as palpation. Refined palpation skills will be used to physically examine muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons in order to identify any areas of dysfunction, imbalance, restrictions or pain.
After a thorough examination and interpretation of findings, the most appropriate osteopathic techniques will be selected in order to tailor treatment to you and your horse effectively.
Aftercare and Exercise Advice
Full aftercare and exercise advice will be provided, as well as any stretches that may be beneficial for you and your horse.
We can help you understand some simple anatomy of your horse throughout the treatment, which can support you to successfully train your horse in the correct way, thus optimising bio-mechanics and helping to ensure a longer career.
