McTimoney Corley Spinal Manipulation
I am trained in the McTimoney Corley method of Spinal Manipulation, which is a gentle, effective method of joint manipulation, which can alleviate pain in the musculoskeletal system, improve mobility, improve joint and muscle function, and realign the entire spine and pelvis. I am also trained in various muscle techniques, myofascial release and cranial work.
I am trained to assess both the skeleton and the soft tissue systems of the body.
Benefits of treatment
- Horses are more symmetrical after treatment, more even on both reins, and move straighter
- Release of spinal joints relieves back pain
- Releases muscle tension and stiffness
- Improved range of movement and freedom of paces
- Increased co-ordination in ridden work
- Increased muscle strength allowing your horse to perform more easily and comfortably
- Improved jumping technique and horses able to complete more difficult dressage movements such as lateral work.
- Horses are able to work at their optimum levels without stress, unevenness or tension in their body, helping to prevent injury.
I am qualified and insured as an Equine Vet Physiotherapist, Rehabilitation Specialist, and McTimoney Corley Spinal Manipulation Therapist.
I am based in Staffordshire, and cover Staffordshire, South Cheshire and parts of Derbyshire.
I use a multi modal approach to your horses specific needs, whether an injury case, joint manipulation is required, maintaining correct alignment of body and posture in between competitions, back check, or general loosen off/massage.
I am registered on the new RAMP register for Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners, and am also registered with the IRVAP professional association for Animal Physiotherapists.
I live in the Staffordshire Moorlands, and cover Staffordshire, and some parts of Cheshire and Derbyshire. I own my own horse, Azuro, the poster boy for most of my advertising (!) and have done some competing in dressage and eventing in the past; these days I enjoy hacking and training at home with Azuro, when time allows!
I initially trained in the McTimoney Corley method of Animal Spinal Manipulation, and specialise in horses. I studied at the Oxford College of Equine Physical Therapy (OCEPT). Most recently I have also qualified as an Equine Vet Physiotherapist & Rehabilitation Specialist.
Each year I attend various additional training days to continually keep my knowledge up to date. I have additionally attended trained in saddle fitting, craniosacral work, myofascial release, kinesiology taping, as well as attending many lectures, seminars, dissections, all of which add to my skill set and knowledge.
My motivation with horses is to see them recover from pain or discomfort, sometimes in front of my eyes, and enable them to move with freedom, in well fitting tack that doesn’t impede their movement, and do the job that the horse and rider enjoy together – whether this is hacking out, jumping, eventing, racing, dressage, fun rides.
Those of my clients that know me well, know that I occasionally shed a tear when I see their horse make an improvement that’s been difficult or long awaited, or move through something difficult for them – my work is very humbling and I thoroughly enjoy working with all the horses that I meet!
I love my work, and am committed to always learning more, and finding ways to impart my knowledge to you, to enable you to help your horses to be the best that they can be!
