Chiropractic care isn’t just humans…our furry friends have spines, too!
People have seen great success in chiropractic care, and veterinary practitioners are beginning to see the benefits on spinal corrections in animals, too. After a consultation to discuss your pet’s condition, medical history, and lifestyle, our team will apply the relevant chiropractic techniques to your dog. This typically means applying direct pressure to the spinal vertebrae and attached muscles to correct their positioning.
While many patients see us after an injury, chiropractic care is a wonderful tool in preventing spinal problems and maintaining health. Many dog breeds are prone to issues in the spine, and as dog owners, we should always strive to maintain a good level of health, wellness, and fitness for our pets. One of the most effective ways to do this is to ensure our pets are getting plenty of exercise in order to develop musculature and supporting tissues. Chiropractic care for animals focuses on restoring and preserving true health by removing interferences and restoring normal function to the spine. This therapy is effective for sick and injured pets, but healthy and athletic animals are wonderful candidates for chiropractic care. Along with preventative chiropractic care, your four-legged friend will benefit from great health and increase the chances of developing many conditions that can manifest themselves later in life.
One of the benefits of chiropractic care is that there is little to no recovery time after a session. Some patients may feel a slight level of residual stiffness or soreness, but the majority of pet owners report improvement in their pet’s gait, posture, and overall body language immediately after treatment. However, it is important to remember that just as chiropractic care takes time with humans, it does with dogs too. Chiropractic is a long-term therapy that is spread over of a number of sessions. While many experience immediate relief, some require more time. The number of sessions will vary depending on each patient, and we are dedicated to getting and keeping your family (four-legged friends included) healthy!
