During the first appointment the Myotherapist will use the Galen Comfort Scale©
to gather information about your dog from you. This includes history of injury/accidents, environment, exercise routine and any behavioural issues to help build a comprehensive picture of your dog’s health and comfort.
Following a postural and hands on assessment, the Myotherapist will use specialised massage techniques to treat any areas of muscular tension. They may also use dynamic remedial and strengthening techniques, to manage any chronic muscular pain and inflammation.
During the appointment the Myotherapist will give you tools to help your dog between treatments which may include small changes to their environment or activities which will positively impact your dog’s health.
You are likely to see a change in your dog’s movement or behaviour after the first treatment but it usually takes three treatments to make an effective change to a dog’s muscular health.
