To become a registered animal biomechanical professional, practitioners must complete 5-6 years of university study in their parent profession which can be chiropractic, osteopathy or veterinary science. They are then required to practice full time for two years in that profession, before applying for the Graduate Diploma of Animal Biomechanical Medicine. If successful, candidates complete two years of study combining online learning, case studies, and hands-on workshops on campus.

If you would like more information on the graduate diploma and its origins visit the ABPA website. If you would like to know how to join the graduate diploma program visit the Course Information section of the BHI website.


Animal Biomechanical Medicine (ABM) is a combination of chiropractic, osteopathy and rehabilitation which is applied to animals. It is designed to be used alongside regular veterinary care and provides a complementary therapy option for animals with many different conditions (see What can we do for your animals?).

Animal biomechanical professionals will work with your regular vet to provide optimal care for your animals, much like the way that chiropractors, osteopaths and physiotherapists work with your GP.
