“We call you the miracle man, you do seem to get better results than anyone else, thank you for helping my horse with your no-nonsense approach”
Helping you and your animals live life.
Dr David Siemens International Chiropractor
Fuelled by a passion that anything is possible and a perfectionist, intuitive approach , Dr David Siemens, affectionately known as Dr Dave, achieves chiropractic results that have rarely been equalled in the industry. He is the only animal chiropractor in the Uk to have a Lifetime Award for Services to Animal Chiropractic. However, on meeting him, with his humble yet brilliant, skills he presents as a person who simply lives to help others feel better.
Dr. Dave is a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic 1974 . Working with Olympic athletes to family pets, international performance horses to farm pigs. In 1988 he served as a ski team chiropractor at the Winter Olympics in Canada before focusing on mainly treating animals.
He has a keen desire to educate and help people and their animals stay healthy and operate at their peek performance. He has lectured all over the world about horse and dog anatomy, gait analysis and chiropractic care. He taught animal chiropractic to vets and chiropractors at both Options for Animals Chiropractic College USA and Parker College of Chiropractic from 1988 until 2009.
His desire to ensure that animal chiropractic continued to evolve and assist the lives of animals lead him to become one of the founding members of the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association, an organisation still in existence today.
Dr Dave often takes both human and animal referrals from fellow Chiropractors and vets who are concerned that they are not making the improvements they would like. He is usually able to assist by rectifying the underlying cause of an issue so the regular practitioner can continue their work.
Dr Dave moved from Colorado to live in North Devon sharing his life with his wife and their 3 dogs, 4 horses and a variety of other animals. He enjoys hacking his horses around the countryside without a saddle and walking his dogs in the Devon rain having spend many years in the high desert of Colorado.
“There is no glitz, no glamour, no clever marketing. You quietly achieve magic miracles that I have never experienced from any other practitioner. How you do it is amazing, we have spend years with various vets, body workers and other chiropractors none of whom get the outcomes you do. Helping me, my children and my dogs you are incredible. I count myself lucky to have found you here in sleepy Devon” Mrs S.
“Thank you for helping my horse Dave. The vets and physiotherapists have all been struggling to identify what was wrong with my horse. You have made a massive difference, his back leg is moving straight we are working on our exercises and the mystery lameness has gone. Thank you again and see you again soon” Miss G
Healthy functioning joints allow us to move more freely in our ordinary daily activities. To be more productive, have more energy, increased feelings of wellness, better sports performance and enhanced resistance to disease. The same is true for animals.
Animal and human chiropractors help the entire body as they use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system thus aiding optimal health.
This has minimal contraindications and virtually no side effects, which makes it the treatment of choice for many conditions.
Therapeutic lasers supply energy in the form of a directed beam of billions of photons of light. Penetrating deeply into the soft tissue, the laser light is transformed into chemical energy within the cells. Physiological changes occurring as a result of changes in the permeability of the cell membrane stimulate the body to repair itself naturally. This process of biostimulation of the cell membrane not only decreases inflammation and pain, but increases natural tissue regeneration. The body naturally heals itself.
Dr Dave prefers the Luminx Super pulse laser he uses as it pulses at up to 80000 pulses per second which is far superior to the majority of lasers and as such enjoys more effective results.
Cranio-Sacral is an exceptionally gentle, yet extremely powerful form of treatment. It supports the body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself as well as helping to reduce stress and building up underlying energy. It engages with the body to restore health and integration of body, mind and spirit. It can enhance health in any circumstances - from birth patterns, injury, illness, severe trauma, and all the many stresses and strains of life, both physical and emotional, often resolving issues that are not helped by other means. Therefore it is suitable for everyone, from newly-born babies to the elderly.
Dave has seen miracles with newborn babies from those unable to suckle to those who are unable to lay flat. He treated his own children when they were just hours old.
He offers this service for both people and animals.
Animals in too much pain, or not well enough to receive traditional chiropractic care respond well to his cranio sessions.
