Interested in the Animal McTimoney Chiropractic Technique? Book a talk/demonstration with Waterside Chiropractic

Are you interested in the Animal McTimoney Chiropractic Technique and would like to know more or see a demonstration?  Waterside Chiropractic Residents, Boxer Dogs Merlot & Sol and Spanish Andalucian Amorio IV are more than happy to show you how gentle and non-invasive McTimoney Chiropractic for animals is.

McTimoney Chiropractic is a gentle non-invasive holistic treatment which works to realign and balance the musculoskeletal system, restoring health, movement, soundness and performance through manipulation that realigns the joints, relieving muscle tension and associated discomfort.  No anaesthetic or drugs are needed and comprehensive individualised after-care advice and support forms part of the package.

McTimoney Chiropractic is a whole body technique; that is the whole body is assessed and treated, not just the area of pain and discomfort.  This is because the area that may be most affected by pain or discomfort may be as a result of a problem in another part of the body, i.e. it is compensating for another area.  It is a treatment that is known for being relatively gentle and most humans and animals enjoy being treated and respond well to treatment.

McTimoney Chiropractic was devised by John McTimoney in the 1950s.  He used the technique initially to treat human patients and then adapted it to be able to treat animals.  Animals, like humans, have a musculoskeletal structure that consists of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles, and like humans, they can suffer from similar types of skeletal disorders and muscular strains, e.g. back, neck, pelvic and joint pain.  The McTimoney Chiropractic technique can be used on humans and animals of all ages, from the very young to the elderly.

Both people and animals, particularly when they are in pain, can be very sensitive.  McTimoney Chiropractors use just their hands to deliver quick, light adjustments which ensures minimum discomfort.  It is the speed and precision of the adjustment rather than the force applied that helps to realign the body.

Animal McTimoney Chiropractic (AMC) demonstrations for dogs can be arranged at Waterside Farm or at another suitable venue and AMC demonstrations for horses can also be arranged.  As the treatment of animals is regulated under the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 and chiropractors or others that practice disciplines that involve the treatment, manipulation or physical therapy of animals may only work with animals with the permission of a veterinary surgeon, it is only possible to arrange such demonstrations using Waterside Chiropractic Residents.

If you would like to book a demonstration either on an individual or group basis, please do not hesitate to contact Waterside Chiropractic to discuss your requirements further.  Price depends on numbers attending and the location of the demonstration and usually averages £5 per person for small groups of up to 6 people.  Talks and demonstrations to other animal-related professionals or clubs interested in the McTimoney Animal Chiropractic technique for their patrons can also be arranged and are normally free of charge.
