Animals benefit greatly from chiropractic care. From young pups to older seniors an adjustment can provide relief of strain on joints to allow for pain alleviation, better mobility, and happier demeanor. Dr. Emily has been certified by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association in animal chiropractic. Dr. Emily will work in cooperation with your vet to ensure that your animal receives the best care possible. Unlike people, animals are not able to verbalize how they feel, but there are signs to look for which may indicate that your animal could benefit from chiropractic care. Limping, disc problems, joint problems, unable to chew food or treats, Muscle spasms, Maintenance of healthy joints and spine Injuries from falling or accidents, Event or sport injuries “Puppy sitting”
The bones of the spine and joints are maintained in a specific alignment. The nerves which surround each joint and vertebral articulation are in constant communication with the central nervous system, brain and all organs. When even a subtle change in the alignment occurs, it is called a subluxation. Subluxations affect the nervous system, local muscles, joints and even distant organs, glands and body functions.
Many animals will show immediate improvement. Sometimes there is a 24-48 hour period of tiredness. Some animals require a few sessions to resolve acute pain. Often, with chronic health problems, the doctor will want to see your animal several times to maintain and re-establish normal function of the joints and nervous system. Contact Dr. Emily directly today to have your animal loved one evaluated for chiropractic care!
Most animals accept both the exam and adjustment without signs of pain. When a painful area is found, the gentlest techniques are used to reduce pain before delivering an adjustment. In cases of acute or extreme pain, a decision may be made to delay the complete adjustment until your companion can be relaxed.
