What is Chiropractic Care for Animals?

Much like chiropractic care for people, animal chiropractic is focused on assessing the joints within the animal's spine to ensure that they are moving correctly. When there is an area with decreased or limited motion, there can be interference to the nervous system, causing pain, inflammation, muscle spasms & more. This is when a gentle and specific adjustment is performed to remove the interference, allowing the body to heal naturally on its own

What to expect during an animal adjustment?

During an adjustment, your animal may yelp, whine, cry out, kick, or try to bite. This is a common response to pain and how the animal is able to communicate their discomfort with us. During each adjustment, there will be a handler who will be responsible for comfortably holding the animal so that neither I, nor the animal, gets hurt. 

What to expect after an adjustment?

  • Most animals begin to show immediate improvements after chiropractic care. 
  • It is possible for your animal to be tired for the next 24-48 hours. This is when the body begins to heal on its own once the spine is properly aligned.
  • There also might be tenderness in the areas that were adjusted so be careful when handling your animal as they may be sore.
  • Some animals require multiple sessions to resolve pain.
