What is chiropractic treatment?
Chiropractic treatment does not replace conventional veterinary medicine, but it can enhance and complement it! The goal of chiropractic treatment is to relieve pain and return the animal's body to full function in order to promote healing.
How does chiropractic work?
Chiropractic adjustments realign vertebrae and joints that are subluxated. The adjustments are tiny movements that help the spinal column and bones all work together better. A very detailed understanding of the anatomy is important to provide safe and effective adjustments. Animal chiropractors must be a licensed veterinarian or doctor of chiropractic in order to adjust animals.
Signs that chiropractic may help your dog:
- Neck or back pain
- Difficulty climbing stairs
- Holding head down when walking
- Grumpy or change in attitude
- Not wagging tail
- Jaw or TMJ problems
- Chronic lameness or muscle atrophy
- Lick granulomas
- Loss of bladder control
- Recurrent ear or anal gland infections
- Seniors (>7 years old)
