So why would your pet need chiropractic adjustments? Basically the same reason as a person; to help relieve pain, recover from an injury, improve performance, improve function, prevent injury & degeneration, improve immune support and improve overall health.
Animal Chiropractic care focuses on the biomechanical dysfunction of the spine (vertebral subluxation) and its effect on the entire nervous system. Animal Chiropractors diagnose and treat subluxations in the spine or extremities. Subluxations can occur from traumatic events but most of the time it is from constant, repetitive wear and tear on joints or in association with degenerative processes within the animal.
SYMPTOMS OF SUBLUXATION:
> Pain > Muscle Spasms > Stiffness > Sensitivity To Touch > Lameness > Gait Abnormalities > Postural Compromise
> Organ Dysfunction > Decreased Appetite > Slow To Rise > Inability To Jump Or Use Stairs
CONDITIONS THAT COULD IMPROVE WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE:
> Arthritis > Degenerative Joint Disease > Hip Dysplasia > Elbow Dyspalsia > ACL Injuries > Lameness > Back Problems
> Gastrointestinal Disease > Chronic Health Issues
These are the symptoms that are the easiest to detect. When normal movement of the spine is affected and left untreated, it can ultimately impact your pet's entire well-being and quality of life. With Chiropractic care, our goal is to restore function and mobility to the subluxated vertebra in an effort to re-connect the nervous system. This allows your pets body to perform at its optimum potential. Chiropractic care can also promote healing and improve range of motion in dogs injured during sporting events, and can enhance their performance prior to competition.
