How does Pet Chiropractic work?

Pet chiropractic is a holistic, all natural approach to treating a number of muscular, joint, and skeletal problems that are common in some dogs and certain breeds. The principles and practices behind veterinary chiropractic are nearly identical to those used with humans.
The most common way both human and animal chiropractors treat subluxations (misalignment of the vertebrae) and other problems is through chiropractic adjustment, which involves low force manual manipulation of the spinal column, joints or other affected areas. These adjustments help improve mobility and function and alleviate physical stress, strain and pain by removing the source of the symptom and letting the body heal itself.

What conditions can Pet Chiropractic help with?

Pet chiropractic can help treat a long list of conditions, injuries and ailments. Below are some of the more common conditions pet chiropractic can treat.

– Subluxations
– Stiffness
– Hip dysplasia
– Repetitive use injuries, neck and back injuries
– Osteoarthritis relief
– Post-surgery recovery
– Urinary incontinence Forelimb lameness

What are some of the Signs and Symptoms that your pet may need chiropractic care?

If you notice any of these signs below in your pet, chiropractic treatment may be able to help. Setting up an initial exam to determine if your pet could benefit from pet chiropractic would be the first step.

– Not able to jump
– Arched back
– Having trouble climbing up or down the stairs
– Walking with a limp or dragging their back legs
– Weak front legs without obvious pain Trouble standing still or uncomfortable when lying down
– Unwillingness to move or decreased mobility
– Sitting or standing in an abnormal position or tilted to one side
– Abnormal walk and a shorter stride
– Yelping when you pick him up around the chest area or general sensitivity to touch

How soon can you expect to see Improvement?

The time it takes to see improvement really depends on the severity of their condition. After a single adjustment session it could take up to five days for your dog’s body to repair itself, and for some conditions that may be all that they need. For some, relief could take anywhere from a few sessions to months of sessions. As with humans a regular tune-up is most cases is a great rule of thumb as well.
