Animal Chiropractic is a field focused on the preservation and general health of the neural, muscular, and skeletal systems. The spine is a complex network of bones, muscles, and nerves. If the movement of the spine becomes impaired, your animal can lose normal mobility and experience stiffness, pain, and even organ dysfunction. If left unattended, these problems can impact your pet’s long-term wellbeing and quality of life.
Animal Chiropractic offers non-surgical, drug-free options for correcting issues in the bones, discs, and soft tissues caused by misalignment of the spine. When vertebrae become damaged and the joints between them become jammed, it often affects the nerves inside those congested areas. This interrupts communications between the brain and other areas of the body, causing pain and lost function in those areas. Chiropractic care focuses on removing those communication barriers and restoring function through the realignment of the spine. Maintaining proper structural alignment is key to optimal functioning for the muscles, nerves, and tissues supporting the joints and in maintaining proper stance and flexibility. It also promotes superior immune function, healthier metabolism, and your animal’s natural ability to heal itself. The practice of Animal Chiropractic has become commonplace as more and more people begin to realize that, when used in conjunction with other treatments, chiropractic care can help their pets feel happier and healthier.
If you feel chiropractic care may be a good choice for your pet, or you have any further questions about our chiropractic services, please consult with your veterinarian. As with all medical treatments, discuss the options with your vet and let him or her perform the procedure so as to ensure your pet’s comfort and safety. It is also crucial to remember that chiropractic care is not intended to be a substitute for standard veterinary medicine.
