Jack Douglas

Labrador Retriever 10 years old

The lovely Jack is a ten year old labrador who loves to go for walks with his devoted owner Susan and her other lab Laddie. Unfortunately Jack began to struggle with his exercise, he was limping on his right front leg and started to collapse on one hind limb. 

Susan was very distressed about his quality of life and so she sought our help. On examination Jack had extensive myofascial pain affecting both his front and hind limbs and manipulation of his hip joints was uncomfortable. Siobhan explained to Susan how to assist Jack with daily massage and a tailored therapeutic exercise programme. Jack had weekly treatments of acupuncture, laser, Emmett and underwater treadmill and soon he was back enjoying his walks. Jack still visits Siobhan monthly for a top up treatment to keep him pain free and active.
