Welcome to RAMP

The Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners

RAMP is a voluntary register of professionals who have signed up to take responsibility to attain and maintain gold standards of practice in animal musculoskeletal treatment.

Professionals trained in Chiropractic, Osteopathic and Physiotherapy techniques are regarded here as one occupation - i.e. animal musculoskeletal practitioners.

The register is designed to help veterinary surgeons and animal owners choose competent professionals providing Chiropractic, Osteopathic and Physiotherapy techniques for the treatment of their animals.

for pet owners

All animals should get the best treatment possible. All treatment should be legal, and chosen with fully informed consent.

for education

RAMP believes that anyone who treats animals should be trained to the highest possible standards. It has a robust system of testing in place to ensure that courses it recognises and accredits provide those high standards.


Here you will find the answers to many of our most commonly asked questions.

Meet your Council

RAMP is led by senior practitioners from the Physiotherapy, Osteopathy and Chiropractic fraternity, plus two Veterinary Surgeons and one lay person.

All have experience in working at national committee level.

All are highly committed to RAMP and its vision for the highest quality of care for animals around the UK.

All work voluntarily for the benefit of animal owners, animal welfare and the professions.
