Animal Chiropractic, like human chiropractic deals with the nervous system housed inside the spinal column. The spinal cord carries nerves to every organ and tissue. When vertebrae are misaligned or restricted they affect the nerves and surrounding tissues. This often results in pain. The purpose of animal chiropractic adjustment is to correct this restriction and restore proper function to the nervous system. This decreases pain and increases flexibility. Chiropractic care has a high degree of success on human patients and has also been shown to be very effective on animals
All animal patients require a referral from their veterinarian approving them for chiropractic care. Upon receipt of a veterinarian’s referral and scheduling an appointment, your pet will be given a thorough evaluation from head to tail to determine where they have restrictions.
