Chiropractic care for dogs, cats and other animals
The spine is the core of the body for dogs, cats, people and all other vertebrates. A wide range of conditions, including lameness and arthritis, can manifest physiologically through spinal tension, stiffness and imbalance. The whole body adapts to accommodate spinal imbalances, potentially causing chronic conditions in joints and muscles far removed from the source of the problem. A chiropractic assessment examines the condition of the animal’s spine, identifying points of tension and weakness. Chiropractic treatment, in the form of carefully directed pressure or manipulation with the hands, adjusts the vertebral alignment and can alleviate problems local to the spine, and throughout the body.
