My Story

A Passion for Animal Health & Motion.

Émilie Depasse is a certified Animal Physiotherapist and certified Manual Therapist specialized in the treatment of Horses and small animals (Dogs and Cats). She is a member of the Belgian Association for Certified Animal Physiotherapists and she attends several professional meetings and webinars a year since Rehabilitation Sciences and Physical Therapy in animals are her biggest passion and she never wants to stop learning.

With her background as a certified Human Physiotherapist (2015) and certified Manual Therapist (2016) she is focused on an effective long-term rehabilitation. Before starting her private cabinet at Huldenberg in 2019 she worked in an Animal Rehabilitation Center. Émilie is since a long time fascinated by the anatomy and artrokinematics of the musculoskeletal system, in humans and in animals (mainly horses and dogs). Her aim is to make them as functional as possible.

HippoPhysio Émilie Depasse has been created in 2016 for treating orthopedic and neurological syndromes. However, she also developed a strong interest and expertise in injury prevention and optimizing the sport performances of the animals at high level. 

With her individualized personal exam and treatment she obtains the best results for sport horses and sport dogs. Regular Sport Checks are advised to improve even the smallest detail of your animals' condition, based on a personal training program. 

A big part of her professional activity goes to neurological rehabilitation for example learning your dog to stand, sit and walk again after paralysis caused by intervertebral disc disease or other neurological conditions.

If your dog ruptured his cruciate ligament, broke his femur or has other orthopedic problems, rehabilitation at HippoPhysio is strongly advised to obtain a fully rehabilitated animal.

If you horse doesn't turn as easily to the left during your jumping exercises or has an unbalanced muscle development one address only, HippoPhysio.

If your horse fell on a cross-country competition and you would like a fast healing of the hematoma/wounds and a complete check of all muscles and articulations, HippoPhysio.
