Animal Manipulation is a well-known natural treatment with huge benefits for a number of conditions:
|Gentle and Effective||Back and neck pain|
|Realigns and Rebalances||Stiffness|
|Whole Body Treatment||Muscular pain and injuries|
|Relaxing and Stress-free||Joint pain and injuries|
The McTimoney technique re-aligns and balances the animal’s musculoskeletal system, which optimizes flexibility and helps the nervous system to function more efficiently. Once any misaligned joints have been targeted (especially the spine and pelvis) animals are typically more comfortable and gradually return to a more normal state of health and mobility.
McTimoney Animal Manipulators work under the guidance of Veterinary surgeons; Often the veterinary surgeon may suggest manipulation as part of the pet’s rehabilitation and in most cases the manipulator and Vet work in conjunction with one another.
As well as treating specific conditions and injuries, it can prevent problems developing – a small misalignment you didn’t even realise was there, can cause untold problems later on. It’s also particularly helpful for older animals, reducing general stiffness and improving mobility.
McTimoney is the only association to have specialist practitioners specifically trained and qualified to treat animals, with post-graduate training required.
Here at Brentknoll Vets we are lucky to have Paula Fisher – Stokes to provide regular clinics and treatments. Paula has been treating small animals (mainly dogs and cats ) for many years having originally trained as a Chiropractor using the McTimoney Technique in 1989. She had a thriving practice treating people alongside her animal practice for over 17 years before turning her attention purely to small animals as an animal manipulator.
Paula works on musculoskeletal conditions varying from the arthritic senior dog to the fit competition athlete. She has treated champions in all fields from the show world of Crufts, agility and obedience. You can find out more about Paula on her own website here >>>
