A safe and pain-free treatment.
Animal chiropractic care involves adjusting the vertebrae to relieve pain and discomfort and improve the range of motion of a pet’s joints. It’s typically reserved for cats, dogs, and horses and is often used in conjunction with both traditional and holistic treatments.
When performed properly, chiropractic care is safe and pain-free. Adjustments improve blood flow, optimize the nervous system, and, sometimes, even eliminate a pet’s reliance on medication entirely. Though the need for surgery cannot always be prevented, chiropractic treatment can reduce the severity of secondary conditions caused by the primary injury.
Chiropractic care can be used to treat various health problems including:
- Neck, back, leg, or tail pain
- Injuries from slips and falls
- Muscle spasms
- Nerve problems
- Difficulty chewing
- Musculoskeletal weakness
While chiropractic treatment is commonly used to treat injuries, it can also be utilized for regular maintenance of the spine and joints.
Chiropractic Care FAQs
Dr. Chuck Coleman performs Chiropractic adjustments and is an AVCA Certified Animal Chiropractor
What Is Chiropractic?
To simplify what chiropractors do during an adjustment, they help return motion to the joints of the spine. When the joints of the spine stop moving (spinal subluxation), swelling and inflammation can develop around the nerves. Spinal subluxation has three causes- stress, trauma, and toxins. Adjusting the spine helps the body to reverse the pathology and promote patient healing.
How Do I Know If My Pet Needs Chiropractic Care?
Basically, any being with a spine can benefit from chiropractic care. If your pet acts more sluggish now than before or has a greater reluctance to walk or play, it may benefit from a chiropractic adjustment. Are there areas of the body your pet does not like you to touch or do they cry out when picked up or for no apparent reason? These scenarios and more can be signs that he/she needs to have a complete physical exam by a Certified Animal Chiropractor.
What Are The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care?
The benefits of chiropractic care for your pet can include pain relief, increased mobility, improved quality of life, and a longer life span. So for your pet’s best health, bring him/her in to see Dr. Coleman for a physical exam and spinal evaluation.
