Infinite Veterinary Physiotherapy is run by Emma Brooks BSc (hons), PGDip Vet Phys, MIRVAP a fully registered and insured Veterinary Physiotherapist based in South Wales. Emma has studied at The University of Nottingham's School of Veterinary Medicine and Science to gain a Level 7 Post Graduate Diploma in Veterinary Physiotherapy. This is the highest level of training available in this field. Emma has a special interest in performance enhancement in the horse and sporting dog, as well as post operative rehabilitation and conservative management of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. She primarily treats horses and dogs however is happy to treat cats and other species on request.
Whilst studying at The University of Nottingham Emma was working in a Small Animal Veterinary Practice where she's gained amble experience of handling dogs of various breeds, sizes and dispositions. From this Emma has learnt endless amounts about how to approach and handle nervous dogs. It's imperative that a dog must feel relaxed during a physiotherapy treatment in order to achieve maximum benefit from the session. If you personally have a nervous dog please don't let this deter you from seeking out physiotherapy for your pet if needed. Emma has owned dogs and horses for nearly 20 years and has competed in a variety of disciplines with her horses. She has a keen interest in equine behaviour and horse training in particular, and takes into consideration the horses age, temperament and level of training when prescribing realistic exercise programmes. She can offer assistance in training young horses to undertake exercises and will offer advice and support before, during and after rehabilitation plans
Emma is currently studying at the University of Nottingham undertaking a research project into the public's perceptions of Veterinary Physiotherapy to gain her masters degree in September 2020. This is a highly under investigated area of reseach and the results of this project will hopefully shed light on the public's understanding.
