About Us

We have over 15 years of experience in animal physiotherapy, multiple degrees and regularly teach internationally. We’ve also contributed to a number of textbooks to help educate up-and-coming animal physiotherapists. When you come to Animal Physiotherapy Services, you know your furry family member will be in the very best possible hands.

Our Philosophy

We believe in doing things properly every time and we believe that having fun while doing so fosters the right frame of mind to do things better in future. When we make a mistake or face a problem, we learn from it and improve as a result. We like working as a team because it helps us balance our lives better so we can enjoy our work more. As a team, we can learn from each other’s strengths – by working together, our whole becomes greater than the sum of our parts. We believe in being honest and kind with each other and all whom we deal with.

Dr Helen Nicholson

Dr Helen Nicholson began working with animals in 1999. Since then, she has become the first in the world to attain both Masters and PhD degrees in animal physiotherapy, and the first to earn the title of Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) Animal Physiotherapist.

She has served as chair of the Animal Physiotherapy Group of the APA and was recently invited to be a board member of the International Association of Veterinary Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy. At last count, Helen had 1 dog, 2 cats, 17 chickens, 4 kids and 1 very long suffering husband!
