Training as an Equine Physiotherapist & Osteopath

According to the proprietary training plan "Osteopathic Equine Therapy after Welter-Böller" for vets and physiotherapists

If you want to improve and/or retain the performance of a horse, equine physiotherapy is an important aid for the trainer and rider and it effectively supports rehabilitation after veterinary treatment.


Physical measures such as cold and heat therapy, Kneipp's affusions and electrotherapy supplement the manual and osteopathic techniques such as massage as well as mobilisation and manipulation treatment of the joints.


An individual training program ensures muscular stabilisation of the horse.
