Bochum (ots) – Julia Grape is a physiotherapist, orthopedic and equine physiotherapist. It supports entrepreneurs in the animal industry in creating and improving their heart business. In this article, the expert reveals why horse owners do not perform physical therapy procedures on their animals themselves and what are the consequences of amateur treatment.
It goes without saying that horse owners only want the best for their animals. Therefore, it is not surprising that they themselves carry out various therapeutic procedures. In addition to the idea of purely wellness, it primarily causes tension in the horse’s musculoskeletal system to be treated on personal initiative. However, such interventions rarely lead to the desired result – in many cases such interventions also lead to long-term problems. “At first, horse owners want to solve obvious problems with the treatments they do themselves. Despite their best intentions, they often don’t succeed. And in their desperation, they resort to further procedures – and thus make it worse,” explains Julia Grape.
“If horse owners take physiotherapy procedures and other treatments themselves, this can lead to various problems and difficulties – so I highly recommend that you always get a professional opinion before starting medical procedures,” stresses the physiotherapist, orthopedist and equine physical therapist. Julia Greb is the owner of “PferdeReha Greb”. For many years, she has been supporting animal handlers and trainers in predictable client acquisition, optimizing their operations and building a successful business. Thanks to her many years of collaboration with competent experts in the field of equine medicine, she knows the added value of their work. Below you will find out why horse owners should not do without the expertise of a professional.
Treatment of horses by ordinary people and its negative consequences
“If horse owners do the physical therapy procedures themselves, it can lead to problematic situations,” explains Julia Greeb. For example, a horse may have a defensive reaction. The upshot is that the animal will continue to passively perceive such treatments in the future—so therapists will also have difficulties in smoothly implementing therapeutic interventions later on. Overstimulation, fatigue, or overload are also potential consequences of improper treatment.
“If the horse has already shown a helplessness, then amateur actions of this kind are fundamentally counterproductive and aggravate the situation,” assures Julia Grape. This is especially the case in the event of an injury that horse owners did not recognize. A thorough evaluation of the initial situation is always necessary in order to avoid possible collateral damage and to be able to ensure targeted treatment. “After all, there are so many different types of injuries that are often unrecognizable at first glance,” the expert says. Accordingly, there can be an injury to the joint area, a rupture of muscle fibers or damage to the tendons.
Avoiding Long-Term Damage: Evaluating Therapist
“Long-term damage cannot be ruled out as a result of inappropriate treatment,” warns Julia Grape. Ordinary people are at risk of, for example, inflammation and increased sensitivity in the horse or additional muscle and tendon injuries through their own intervention. In order to avoid the worst, horse owners should always have the situation assessed by an experienced handler.
The treatment can then be carried out independently. For this purpose, the expert determines the necessary exercises to treat the horse. To ensure proper implementation, he discusses this in detail with horse owners and makes it clear to them if necessary. The expert can also use this opportunity to point out potential risks and the importance of individual measures. “This way, owners can take care of their beloved pets themselves without risking mistakes and subsequent damage,” says Julia Grape.
