Prof. Stuart McGregor, DO, Animal Ostepath
Stuart graduated from the European School of Osteopathy, Maidstone, in 1984. He is registered with the General Osteopathic Council, UK, and is a member of the British Osteopathic Association.
Alongside a busy career in human osteopathy, Stuart has been running his own animal practice ever since and has accumulated over 35 years of experience and knowledge of animal osteopathy. He has consequently developed a deep understanding of animals and the role of osteopathic techniques in resolving injuries and maintaining their fitness.
Stuart is acknowledged as the leading world expert on animal flexibility and mobility. He was the creator and first to apply Body Adjustment techniques to horses and dogs, starting in 1984, and is recognized as the originator of modern animal osteopathy. He wrote ‘The principles of osteopathy applied to the horse,’ which was the first-ever written work on the subject.
Stuart has lectured extensively in the UK and internationally and regularly advises organizations in the horse and dog care world – including vets, trainers, riders, and other equine and canine therapists – of the animal structure and function. He has trained many of the leading UK and overseas practitioners at the renowned Osteopathic Centre for Animals in Wantage where he is Centre Principal. He sees thousands of horses in his equine osteopathy practice every year, ranging from famous horses of famous owners and trainers to sport, club, and leisure horses and ponies.
