Welcome to Pepper

Hello and welcome to Pepper. This very fit working Labrador has had a painful front Leg for a little while. Originally diagnosed as an arthritis issue, it was later re diagnosed as biceps tendons. It recovered well for a while but has never quite healed fully so the owner now wants to try some physiotherapy. As a human physio, she saw the benefits of this route and so wanted to be able to use similar methods on her dog.

We have set them up with a moment exercise regime and some gentle massage and mobilization techniques. Its important in this case, not to over massage as this can irritate the inflamed tissues.

Good luck Pepper and mum!
