Just like humans, animals can suffer injuries leading to pain, stiffness, poor performance and behavioral changes. Animals can benefit from osteopathic treatment.
Animal osteopathy is a manual therapy which complements veterinary care. It aims to remove tension, restrictions and encourages healing in the animal’s
musculoskeletal system. The result is improved mobility and performance.
Animal osteopathy was developed over 30 years ago in the UK and is common practice in Europe, Australia and New Zealand where it is recommended by many veterinarians. Animal osteopaths commonly treat horses and dogs.
