Animals

Chiropractor - Ian Miller DC, AMC, FMCA, FCCAnimals also benefit from having their bodies re-balanced. Working bodies become out of balance. Dogs have vertebrae construction in their spine similar to humans. They benefit from a manipulation tune-up to improve free flowing movement.

Please note that it is against the law in the UK to treat an animal without the authority of your veterinary surgeon. Please telephone your vet to arrange this before asking for a treatment appointment.
