Canine Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a gentle hands-on approach to treating a wide range of issues; with the aim of restoring and maintaining optimal health and well-being.
The treatment approach not only focuses on the identified areas of dysfunction but also takes into consideration the entire musculoskeletal framework of the animal; this enables fast positive change to occur with lasting long-term benefits.

Osteopathic techniques used during treatment will be carefully selected and tailored for your animals'specific needs,and may include:

  • Joint mobilisations & adjustments
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Myofascial release techniques
  • Muscle stretching
  • Cranial release techniques
  • Osteopathic Treatment
Such techniques allow positive changes to occur within the animals' musculoskeletal system by influencing their circulatory, lymphatic and nervous system. These all contribute to achieving ultimate health and well-being; therefore, enabling your animal to achieve optimal performance.
