Canine Chiropractic Care

It is a safe, effective form of treatment which is essentially the same as Chiropractic Care for humans.

It aims to identify areas where your pets body is not functioning properly.
These areas are then assessed and if deemed appropriate, treatment will be performed. This treatment can include spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy, stretching and advice on care that can be given at home.

Animals, just like humans can develop back problems that do not allow the animal to function to their maximum ability.

Animals often suffer from the same ailments people do but sometimes have a harder time showing us that they hurt. Our pets can suffer from disc herniations, back and neck pain, hip and shoulder dysfunction, and even jaw pain. If your pet has trouble getting up and down the stairs, trouble rising, limps, drops food, or yelps when being picked up, chiropractic care can help. Other signs to watch out for include irritability, decreased performance, stiffness, puppy sitting, muscle spasms, or simply them "not being themselves."

What to Expect

Typical appointments last anywhere from 15-30 minutes. Your animal will receive a thorough chiropractic examination (ruling out any veterinary related issues), gait and stance analysis, full spine and extremity adjusting and of course lots of love and cuddles! It is our goal to make the visit as gentle and stress-free as possible so that your pet is comfortable and happy.

What is an Adjustment?

Joints are assessed for proper movement and alignment. If the joint is found to be dysfunctional or not moving properly, an adjustment is rendered to the area. This is a quick thrust in a specific direction that frees up the joint allowing the joint to move and nervous system input (via joint receptors) to function properly. Chiropractic adjustments restore proper motion to the joints, improve nervous system input and release endorphins. Some pets sleep after treatment and some pets have increased energy. Every pet is unique and often has their own reaction to care.
