Animal Chiropractic

What is it:

Chiropractic care deals with misalignments of the vertebrae within the spinal column. The spinal column houses the nerves that feed messages from the brain to all systems of the body.

When the vertebrae are misaligned it can create pressure on those spinal nerves resulting in pain, numbness and tingling, loss of movement and poor or improper function of the organs. This can result in dis-ease.  Chiropractic uses manual manipulation of the vertebrae in the spine to bring them back into alignment and to allow for proper nerve flow.

Benefits:

  • Increased mobility
  • Increased range of motion in the joints (feet, wrists, elbows knees and hips)
  • Decreased pain
  • Better function of organs
  • More energy
  • More alert
  • Better attitude
  • A happier pet.

Who Benefits:

Animals suffering from hip dysplasia, arthritis, disc herniation or stiff and sore joints and muscles.  Pets that have difficulty getting up, laying down or navigating stairs or ones that spend time on slippery surfaces.  Performance animals that run or leap on a regular basis.

Signs that your pet may benefit from chiropractic:

  • Slowing down on walks or not wanting to walk too far.
  • No longer wagging their tail.
  • Dragging of the feet.
  • Difficulty getting up or down.
  • An arch or a sway in the back.
  • Twitching of the skin when you touch or brush a specific area, etc.

Session Length:

The session length is determined by the practitioner and is based on the condition being treated and the tolerance of the animal.  Treatments can be a one time visit or can span over several treatment sessions.

Chiropractic is a complimentary therapy and is NOT meant to take the place of veterinary care.
