Dog Treatments

Before any treatment is carried out an in depth history of the dog will be taken gaining knowledge of:

This will allow Dani to understand the necessary information required to determine any reasons which may have caused a decline in performance or any changes in the dogs behaviour.

A static and dynamic assessment will then be carried out. The static assessment studies the dogs conformation, any muscle asymmetry and areas of heat or swelling that may be compromising performance, claw wear will also be checked to discover any unevenness which may be caused by abnormal movement. The dynamic assessment examines the dogs movement in walk and trot and most importantly checking the animal is sound (unless a lame dog has been referred by a veterinary surgeon in order to treat compensatory problems). Symmetry of stride is noted and the dogs fluidity within its motion through the neck, back and pelvis is also studied.

This assessment will ensure the dog is safe to treat and doesn’t have any other problems which may need to be referred to a veterinary surgeon before a McTimoney treatment is carried out.

The whole of the animals body is palpated feeling over for any misalignments and muscle spasms within the dogs musculoskeletal system, starting from the atlas at the top of the head and working systematically right through to the pelvis. The actual treatment is then carried out as previously discussed in (what is McTimoney) and a detailed aftercare program will be provided once the nature of the problems have been discovered and treated. It is vital the owner/handler carries out the aftercare program as best as possible in order to ensure the therapy is as effective as possible and minimises the risk of misalignments reoccurring.
