'structure governs function'

The philosophy behind training encompasses treatment of the whole animal. The body is an integrated unit and each part influences the next, therefore no area is assessed or treated in isolation. A comprehensive knowledge of the anatomy and biomechanics is vitally important, as are skills and experience in observation and palpation.

All fully trained and insured manual therapists have acquired these skills to varying degrees during their human training, but the ability to transfer these skills to the treatment of animals requires a respect for the diversity and magnificently adapted functional anatomy.
