Spinal Manipulation (Animal Chiropractic)

Animal Chiropractic is an area of animal health care that focuses on the health of the nervous system and spine, and their effect on whole body health and disease.

 

There are many organ systems within the body, and the nervous system coordinates and regulates them all. The nervous system includes the brain, the spinal cord, and the nerves. The spinal cord is housed and protected by a system of bones (vertebrae) that comprise the spine. These bones are connected by a series of muscles and ligaments. The relative flexibility of these connections allows movement and flexibility of the spine.

 

Animal Chiropractic can be useful in treatment of:

  • Neck, back, and tail pain

  • Gait abnormalities/lameness

  • Hip dysplasia

  • Injuries from falls or accidents

  • Prevention of intervertebral disc disease
