Post graduate course: Animal Osteopathy at College Sutherland in Amsterdam

Instagram CS Amsterdam Animal Osteopathy

Animal Osteopathy is the fastest growing profession in animal healthcare worldwide. ⁠Through the use of specific techniques developed in human osteopathy, osteopathic treatment addresses the structural and physical needs of an animal to relieve pain, improve movement and prevent injury.⁠

⁠Unlike humans, animals cannot tell us about their pain, hence osteopathic reasoning is largely based on careful observation and manual examination. For example, a dog will communicate their discomfort or pain by displaying changes in personality, behavior, or performance. ⁠
