Chiropractic Care

Is your four-legged family member struggling with pain or mobility issues? Could a chiropractic adjustment help?

The practice of chiropractic care, which has been used in human medicine for decades, is now something that our animal friends can also benefit from. At Animal Health Center, we are committed to delivering the highest level of care through as many treatment options as possible. To that end, we are proud to offer veterinary chiropractic adjustments as part of our extensive list of services.

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care involves the strategic manipulation and readjustment of the body by a specially trained professional. These adjustments work to restore proper alignment of joints, thereby reestablishing motion and movement and decreasing pain. With correct alignment, nerve function is restored and your companion’s body is allowed to communicate freely.

Will a chiropractic adjustment hurt my pet?

Chiropractic adjustments are highly targeted yet surprisingly gentle on the patient. In fact, the majority of animals we treat become quite relaxed during a session. Pets usually sleep for a few hours after an adjustment, after which owners often report that their furry companions wake up relieved and revitalized!

How can I know if my pet needs an adjustment?

Symptoms of incorrect joint movement can vary greatly and can include pain, behavioral changes, lameness, and refusal to participate in normal daily activities. Other symptoms may be more difficult to see because they adversely affect your pet’s nervous system. This is why regular adjustments to ensure proper nerve flow are essential for many pets.

Other applications…

Chiropractic care is helpful for more than just reducing pain. Since the procedure ultimately works in conjunction with the nervous system, it can greatly help pets that are obese or elderly. It can also aid in a faster and more comfortable post-operative recovery period. Even a pet who is sore from a long weekend of hiking could benefit from a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic can also help with a wide variety of other health issues, such as incontinence, skin conditions, behavior problems, and gastrointestinal disorders. If your four-legged family member is in pain or suffering from an illness that’s inhibiting health and happiness, chiropractic care may be the answer. It can also be an effective way to help keep your pet healthy and balanced throughout his or her life. If you’re curious about this service and whether it could benefit your companion, we’d be more than happy to answer your questions. Give us a call today to get started!
