Will it help my dog?
Galen Myotherapy is not a magic cure for all ailments. However, it is a hugely powerful range of techniques that can rebalance your dog’s kinetic chain and relieve pain. Most of the conditions we see are as a result of underlying conditions, old injuries or repetitive strain. Here are some other examples of issues that can be treated with Galen Myotherapy:
- Ongoing lameness that is typically difficult to pin-point accurately
- Patella subluxation
- Behavioural issues – dogs in pain almost always behave differently. That can include appearing to be grumpy, refusing to do things they always used to, struggling to learn new movements or tricks, showing anixiety or agression
- Compensatory issues – previously healthy limbs take the load for painful joints, then become sore and stiff
- Whiplash caused from impact at speed
- Reducing the risk of injury in working and sporting dogs
In some circumstances your dog shouldn’t have treatment:
- if you do not have vet consent
- a very recent accident or injury
- undiagnosed pain
- your dog has a contagious illness/condition
- within 2 hours of eating
- if your dog has just finished vigorous exercise
There are other contraindications, which is why it’s important to talk in more detail about your dog’s individual needs before I start treatments.
Most dogs, young or old, couch potatoes or canine athletes, super fit or struggling will benefit from Galen Myotherapy.
See the section below for more detail on the three broad categories that benefit from this treatment
Getting Started is Easy

Once I have the completed vet consent form we are ready to go! Your reserved appointment will be confirmed and I will meet you and your best friend for their first session
If you have any questions you can call me, or send me an email.
If you are worried about your dog, it is important to get your questions answered as soon as possible. Always talk to your vet about emergencies, or if you think your dog has a new illness or their condition has changed.
