Your horse/dog will need 24-48 hours rest after their treatment, to allow the body to adapt and adjust to the changes that have been made and ensure they receive the maximum benefit from the treatment. An aftercare program will be tailored to the individual’s needs, to include a detailed schedule for building back into work in the week following treatment, stretches and exercises to strengthen areas of weakness and prevent re-occurrence of any problems. Long term aftercare may also include changes in lifestyle and management. It is important that aftercare advice is followed carefully, to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment.
