About Animal Physiotherapy Group of South Africa
Animal Physiotherapy Interest Group of the South African Society of Physiotherapy
The Animal Physiotherapy Group of South Africa has been the leading provider of animal physiotherapy services in South Africa since its inception in 1986. As a founding member of the International Association of Physical Therapists in Animal Therapy, the APGSA continues to play an active role in the implementation of translational physiotherapy across species. The APGSA prides itself on high standards of evidence-based physiotherapy practice in the field of animal healthcare, and advocates for the physical rehabilitation of animals in a One Health context. As physiotherapists with a foundation in human medicine, APGSA members understand that domesticated animals and humans function within a shared context, and successful management of animal pain and dysfunction requires an approach that addresses the bioethological function of each human-animal dyad. The APGSA provides continuing education and support to its members through training, workshops and conferences.
