Chiropractic

Chiropractic therapy is concerned with the treatment of the nervous, muscular and skeletal systems in the body. It is used in animals as well as humans for many different ailments and is trusted by countless dog owners to help with all manner of conditions. This natural therapy is sometimes called complimentary because it is different to modern “Allopathic” medicine, but complements it rather than being used instead of it.

It is one more tool to add to the options available for dog owners when making a decision about the care of their dog. The advantage of natural therapies is that they are usually gentle, they can be combined with other treatments easily and it encourages the body to heal itself.
Your dog’s total physical, mental and emotional well being can benefit from chiropractic care. When the basic skeletal system is not aligned, the body is unable to function at its full potential

When treating a patient with chronic pain, if you take away or lessen that pain the body as a whole reacts positively to the experience.

The nervous system can be affected by poor, or blocked, energy flow (communication between the brain and all areas of the dog’s body) when the nerves are pinched, which in turn keeps your dog from performing at his optimal level. Blockages can also cause extreme pain and if left untreated can lead to poor overall health for your dog.

Though it may sound scary at first, the simple alignment of vertebrae in the spinal column causes minimal to no discomfort.

During a typical session, you and your dog will go back to a quiet area of the facility where Dr. Campbell will manipulate your dog using his hands. If displacement of a vertebra is felt, he will attempt to relieve the displacement with a small, quick pulse that is meant to tap the vertebrae back into place.

Each adjustment is done with great care and low pressure on the animal… in fact, the amount of pressure is so gentle that it would be safely used on an infant!

Experts from the Animal Holistic Care Specialists Group say, “Many dogs noticeably enjoy their adjustments.”

Here are some signs to watch out for that may indicate your dog is uncomfortable:
*Abnormal sitting or lying posture
