Infinity Physiotherapy is ran by Rachel Graham, a chartered human physiotherapist, ACPAT and RAMP accredited Veterinary Physiotherapist, offering a mobile service throughout Cumbria to the Scottish Borders.
ACPAT physiotherapists have all trained in human physiotherapy and worked in practice before upgrading to work with animals. The considerable experience gained in the human field develops skills which are largely transferable to animal physiotherapy. Their experience and specialities are diverse and therefore treatment programmes are highly specialised.
Chartered Physiotherapists working with animals are specialists in delivering individual physiotherapy programmes to animals. Many ACPAT members also work in human physiotherapy in a diverse range of specialities. Many of our members are involved in post graduate research up to PhD level, teaching physiotherapy students and delivering high quality training to other para-veterinary professionals.
All Chartered Physiotherapists abide by the standards for fitness to practice set by the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Code of Professional Values & Behaviour set by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). This ensures they adhere to the highest standards of health and safety, record keeping, professionalism, competency and all maintain full public and professional mal practice indemnity.
Infinity Physiotherapy provides assessment and treatment to both humans and animals to optimise rehabilitation and performance potential. Physiotherapy can aid in the rehabilitation of an animal following trauma or a surgical procedure and for animals with pre-existing conditions such as arthritis or general ageing, as well as the maintenance and training of working and performance animals to reach their full athletic potential.
Referrals may be from your veterinary surgeon or by direct contact from yourself. Veterinary consent will be obtained before carrying out assessment and treatment. This is a legal requirement of the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 in order to protect your animal.
