Veterinary Chiropractic Care
Also known as spinal manipulation therapy, veterinary chiropractic offers our canine and feline patients a gentle way to encourage their own bodies’ healing mechanisms by using manual therapy or chiropractic adjustments. We are able to increase healing without the use of invasive drugs or chemicals, increasing performance and improving quality of life.
Animal chiropractic offers non-surgical, drug-free options for correcting joint, disc, and soft-tissue disorders related to improper skeletal alignment and/or movement. Chiropractic also provides overall health benefits, including superior immune function, healthier metabolism and a resilient nervous system, which will enhance your animal’s natural ability to heal from future sickness.
The American Veterinary Medical Association guidelines recommend a licensed veterinarian examine and establish a preliminary diagnosis prior to any initiation of alternative medical treatment. During this initial exam, the gait, posture and the alignment of the vertebra and extremities are evaluated.
