McTimoney Animal Therapist
McTimoney is a manual therapy that’s used to prevent and treat a wide range of health and performance problems. An animal’s musculoskeletal system can be aligned and balanced by adjusting any misaligned joints in the body, with special attention to the spine and pelvis.
This helps to restore and maintain health and improve soundness and performance. It’s effective because it works to eliminate the cause, not just treat the symptoms.
Problem areas are treated with precise and rapid adjustments to correct misalignments in the bones and/or spasm in associated muscles.
Practitioners use only their hands for analysis and adjustment. Aftercare usually includes rest or limited exercise for a few days.
Depending on the problem and severity, a number of treatments may be required. And periodic check-ups are advised as a preventative measure and to help achieve optimum performance.
McTimoney can be used to:
treat chronic musculoskeletal problems or acute problems such as tension or stiffness
maintain fitness and prevent injury
maintain soundness in older animals
achieve skeletal symmetry in growing youngsters
enhance the performance ability of sport horses
treat after a fall or trauma
