What is animal chiropractic?
Animal chiropractic is an integrative manual therapy that aims to maintain your pet’s neuro-muscular and overall health. The nervous system is controlled by the brain and spinal cord, which is surrounded and protected by the vertebrae. Performance work or just daily wear and tear can cause vertebrae to develop decreased range of motion, or vertebral subluxation. When vertebrae aren’t moving appropriately, the communication to the nervous system (as well as the rest of the body including muscles and organs) is affected. Some signs you may notice include decreased performance, gait abnormalities, spasms, stiffness, lameness, pain and organ dysfunction. The nervous system is also designed to aid in healing and immune function, and decreased motion between the vertebrae impairs this innate ability.
The goal of chiropractic is to restore motion to the affected vertebrae and improve communication to the nervous system. This is achieved by a specific, low amplitude, high velocity thrust, with an end result of optimal biomechanics of muscles and joints and improved overall performance and immune function.
