Chiropractic Treatment of a Pet

Chiropractic Treatment for Your Dog

Today’s veterinary chiropractic treatment has borrowed from the
human chiropractic profession. Veterinary chiropractors are trained to
have a detailed understanding of the structure and function of every
bone, muscle, nerve, ligament, and tendon in the body and how they
interact and move in relation to each other. To realign the bones, the
chiropractic practitioner performs adjustments, in which the bones are realigned either manually or using a small impacting device called an activator.

Chiropractic adjustment is particularly helpful when a dog has an
injury or other musculoskeletal problem that causes her to move
abnormally. Perhaps your dog has had an injury and has been limping. Or
maybe she has hip dysplasia or arthritis, and she is stiff or favors
one leg over the other. These chronic abnormalities in movement can
result in an uneven tension of muscles and misalignment of the skeletal
system. Chiropractic adjustment realigns the bones, helps relax the
muscles, and returns balance to the musculoskeletal system.
