Animals, like people, can have problems with their spines not only from too much, ill-timed or inappropriate activity, but also from too little. Animals can trip, fall and stumble just as we humans do and sometimes the demands of competition, racing and showing are more than they can take.
Anna is trained to use chiropractic techniques on a range of animals - although most of her work is with horses and dogs, she has competence to treat cats (difficult patients!) and even cattle.
Here's what animal owner's have to say about animal chiropractic technique and its effects:
"A great find for me! I was struggling with a horse with serious back problems that were really affecting performance. Other Physiotherapists and Chiropractors had tried without success to find the problem, but after just one treatment with Anna she was a different and very happy horse, able to perform at top level comfortably, reflected in her results. Anna checks and treats all my horses regularly and has become an essential member of my team. She has a real understanding of the performance horse and what they need."
"Last year you came out to see my horse Torchlight at Dolesfoot Farm in Newborough. After your visit he became a new horse, winning three events on the run. So before I start competing again would like to book a check up."

"You came out last Wednesday to Rodbaston College and treated my horse Pidge. I would just like to thank you ever so much for what you did as he is now walking pretty straight on his off hind, which is a tremendous difference to what it was before. There is also a marked difference in his ridden work too, for the better. So thank you once again :"
