The McTimoney College of Chiropractic is excited to announce that the first Animal Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Conference will be held in Abingdon on the 17th April 2024. This conference will show-case the latest research in animal chiropractic care and rehabilitation through both platform and poster presentations. We are also inviting abstracts from other animal musculoskeletal disciplines including veterinary physiotherapy with relevant new research to apply as well. Clinical research and case studies are welcomed and will be considered by a peer review committee. Abstracts must be submitted by 2nd January and successful applicants will be notified by 15th February. Tickets will be on sale from February 2024.

Principal of the McTimoney College of Chiropractic, Professor Christina Cunliffe says, “There is a wealth of really good research undertaken every year but this must be peer-reviewed and presented to a wider audience in order for the benefits of increased knowledge to be felt across the industry and profession. As we move towards the wider regulation of animal care in the future, it is important that chiropractic for animals is recognised alongside other approaches. This is an ideal opportunity to show-case what research has been done and its implications for animal health and welfare to a wider audience.”

The McTimoney College of Chiropractic was founded over 50 years ago and is at the forefront of animal chiropractic care, with the only university-validated animal chiropractic qualification in Europe. With training bases in Abingdon, Manchester, Madrid and Hong Kong, the use of chiropractic care in humans and animals has never been more popular with demand for new graduates at an all time high. Programme Leader Vanessa Davidson explains, “McTimoney chiropractic care for animals is light, gentle and well-received by a wide range of species. Colleagues of mine regularly work alongside veterinary surgeons, physiotherapists and other para-professionals to provide the best possible outcomes for the animals they see, be that for performance, post-surgery or injury, and for maintenance care. Here at the College we are passionate about sharing what we do, and the research our graduates produce every year has a vital role in furthering scientific knowledge and understanding too.”
