About McTimoney-Corley
McTimoney-Corley has been specially adapted to treat animals

McTimoney-Corley Spinal Therapy is a method of restoring health by gentle corrective manipulation of the bones of the head, spinal column, pelvis and limbs, thereby ensuring the proper functioning of the nerves and endocrine systems which control the natural self-healing capability of the body.
Whilst some other manipulation techniques rely on fierce, (or invasive), long-lever adjustments to correct bone misalignments, McTimoney-Corley Spinal Therapy works with the body, not against it. Treatment of the whole skeleton each time means that any misaligned bones are not forced back into place, but are coaxed gently into re-alignment by manipulative adjustments that encourage soft tissue release.
It is important to realise that McTimoney-Corley Spinal Therapy does not just relieve pain, but it can, and often does, remove the cause of other disease. No cell or organ of the body can function properly without its correct supply of nerve impulses.
McTimoney-Corley Spinal Therapists are trained to assess bone misalignments by using their hands, and to correct any of these subluxations with highly refined yet extremely gentle manipulations. Remedial exercises may be recommended and advice will always be given to help avoid a recurrence of the problem. The whole body is usually treated during each session, because a problem in one part of the body can lead to problems in other areas. Hence our motto, 'The Whole Body Whole'.
McTimoney-Corley Spinal Therapy, when used regularly, can also be used as a preventative therapy. The frequency of treatments depends on the type and amount of work the animal is undertaking
When to seek help

We rely on owners’ observations and subsequent referrals from veterinary surgeons.

What causes these problems

Trauma is often the most obvious cause e.g. falls, accidents, slipping, etc. Modern competitions often include tight turns, slippery going and twisty courses. More subtle causes are conformation problems, such as long or weak backs, ill-fitting equipment, excess weight and even dental problems.

Indications include;
Lameness after a fall or other accident where alternative causes have been ruled out
Uncharacteristic changes in performance, behaviour or temperament
Limb-dragging or odd, irregular action
Reoccurrence of symptoms previously successfully treated by chiropractic manipulation
Absence of any resolution of the problem, using conventional methods
