All Animal Chiropractors have extended their GCC-approved chiropractic training (as required for the treatment of humans) with postgraduate training recognised by the Royal College of Chiropractors. This assures their competency to provide chiropractic care for animals. Note that these chiropractors are registered healthcare professionals who apply the same professionalism to the care of animals that they are required to apply to the care of humans. Legislation stipulates that animals may only be treated by a Veterinary Surgeon or someone authorised by a Veterinary Surgeon. Animal owners can be reassured that members of the Royal College of Chiropractors’ Animal Faculty adhere to this requirement, working under the authorisation of a Veterinary Surgeon at all times to ensure safe treatment of the animal.
All animals may suffer from back, neck, pelvic and musculoskeletal problems at some time during their life. And like us, they may benefit from McTimoney treatment. Although it is mainly horses and dogs that have been treated, a huge variety of other animals have also benefitted – cats, farm animals, birds and a variety of “exotics” – even an elephant.
The McTimoney chiropractic technique, an ethical and respectful way in which to work with another species; most animals will accept it quite readily and many seem to really enjoy it.
Whatever the age of your animal, whatever your chosen life style, activity or sport with your animal, you can improve the comfort, well being, general health, quality of life, and even performance of your animal with the aid of McTimoney treatment.
McTimoney chiropractic will align and balance the animal’s musculoskeletal system, so optimizing the individual’s dynamic flexibility and helping the nervous system to function at its highest level. By adjusting those misaligned joints throughout the whole body whilst paying special attention to the spine and pelvis, health, soundness and performance may be restored and maintained.
