The gentle yet effective benefits of McTimoney animal chiropractic treatment mean that most animals readily accept and enjoy the treatment.
Like most therapies used on animals, McTimoney Animal Manipulation was originally developed for the treatment of humans.
McTimoney animal chiropractic treatment is a holistic, whole-body musculoskeletal technique that acts to restore range of motion, aid soundness and optimises performance.
Animals just like us can suffer from back problems and back pain. Whilst concerning this is not surprising when you consider the numerous animal disciplines that exist today, along with the level of performance that we expect from them.
Due to the veterinary surgeons act all treatments must have veterinary approval prior to treatment taking place.
