An event rider from Hampshire, Maddy Taylor, and her horse Orange, proved that dedication pays off despite all odds, aided by the skills of McTimoney Animal Practitioner Jenny Lewis MSc, BSc (hons), MMAA. Following a nasty fall which left Orange…
Following a brutal dog attack which left Banjo, a four-year-old Lurcher, terrified and facing a long period of rehabilitation, McTimoney treatment has seen him return to his old self and back competing in agility, just months after the accident occurred….
A preliminary study of the effect of manual chiropractic treatment on laterality of mechanical nociceptive thresholds (MNTs) in Thoroughbred racehorses.
Support evidence that manual chiropractic treatment reduces sensitivity to pain along the thoracic and lumbar musculature with independent laterality effects at different sites.
Further research is warranted with larger cohorts, repeatability and over a longer period
Investigation into the effects of McTimoney chiropractic treatment, Static Magnetic therapy and a combined treatment intervention on the Mechanical Nociceptive Threshold values in Thoroughbred Racehorses.
Support evidence of a positive effect of McTimoney Chiropractic and with the use of Magnetic rug(1000gauss) on the horses’ back muscle sensitivity to pain (increased MNTs) compared to no treatment intervention for 14 days
Further research is required on the differences between the treatments on muscle tonicity effects and performance parameters and horses with back pain.
An investigation into the effect of the relationship between spinal vertebrae alignment and the performance of FEI international 1* event horses at a British Eventing competition.
Event horses that had a lower total number of misalignments were more likely to be placed higher in a FEI 1* eventing competition.
Further research of effects of correcting misalignments on performance parameters is recommended.
