Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body
is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are
controlled by the brain, spinal cord and all of the nerves in the body. When
your spine is misaligned it can irritate your nervous system resulting in
overall disharmony or malfunction throughout your body. Chiropractic is the
science of locating malfunctioning spinal structures; the art of reducing their
impact to the nervous system and the philosophy that, when working properly,
the body has the potential to heal itself. Your body is your best healer!
Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. When
under the proper control of your nervous system, all of the cells, tissue and
organs of your body are designed to resist disease. The chiropractic approach
to better health is to locate and help remove interferences to your natural
state of being healthy.
Your animal is designed in the same fashion, with a self- healing body! They can get a lot of the same problems that we can: spinal pain, muscle spasms, nerve problems, disc problems, limping, injuries from falls and accidents, jaw (TMJ) problems, difficulty chewing, vomiting, respiratory or urinary infections, diarrhea, constipation, incontinence, seizures, neurological problems, lameness, leg weakness, paralysis and others.
How do I know if my animal needs Chiropractic?
Your animal can give you many signs that he/she needs Chiropractic. The biggest is mobility. They start to slow down on walks, not want to go as far, they don’t jump like they use to, they don’t wag their tail anymore, dragging of the feet, weak hind end, has a hard time getting up/down, moans a lot more to move, arched up in the mid back or a sway in the middle back, hip dysplasia, twitching of the skin when you touch a certain area, they don’t like you to brush or touch an area, you feel heat coming off the back, plus all of the other symptoms listed above!
