Refer with Confidence to Practitioners who have Committed to our Quality Standards.
These standards include:
This Register offers vets, members of the public and other allied professionals the reassurance they need to safely refer to, and/or work closely with registered musculoskeletal practitioners.
The three professions of Chiropractic, Osteopathy and Physiotherapy have identified that they have more common ground than they have differences in working with animals. Within each profession, practitioners have a range of skills, techniques and areas of interest that they excel in, but all listed here have reached the Gold Standard required by RAMP.
Most registered practitioners are trained to treat a range of animals from mammals to birds, reptiles to farm animals. Some even treat zoo animals. As a result, we recommend that you contact your local practitioner and ask them directly for their area of expertise.
The principle of musculoskeletal care is to mobilise and manipulate dysfunctional soft tissue and joints in order to restore, improve and optimise flexibility, symmetry, coordination, strength and balance. This will improve function and performance in terms of reducing pain, reducing asymmetries, restoring nerve function ultimately increasing mechanical strength and stability.
Any condition outside the Practitioner's remit is quickly referred back to the Veterinary Surgeon. Allowing early Veterinary diagnosis and treatment of pathology and collaboration on the ongoing care plan.
Musculoskeletal therapies are a non-invasive adjunct to veterinary treatment for musculoskeletal and post-surgical conditions.
