So you may be wondering..."What is Chiropractic?" or "I know what chiropractic is, but what can it help with?" You have come to the right place to have these questions answered.
If you utilize chiropractic care for yourself than you understand the immense benfits chiropractic care has on health, so why not extend these benefits to your pet? Like you, your pet has a brain and spinal cord that is encased by a skull and vertebral column with nerves that exit the spine at every level. These nerves control the function of virtually every aspect of the body including muscle, organ, and immune function. When a bone in the vertebral column becomes misaligned, the information carried by the nerve exiting at that level can get interfered with or disrupted. As chiropractors we call this condition a subluxation. If the nerve happens to be carying information to a organ like the heart for example, your pet (or yourself) may experience cardiovasuclar issues. If the nerve is going to your skeletal mucsle you may experience muscle weakeness. This is why chiropractic care can be successful in treating more than just back pain. Here is a list of just a few of the conditions animal chiropractic can help with...
