What is Veterinary Chiropractic?

Veterinary chiropractic, also known as animal chiropractic, is an evidence-based practice that combines the principles of chiropractic care with veterinary knowledge. This treatment is performed by veterinarians or certified animal chiropractors who have undergone specialized training. During a chiropractic session, gentle adjustments are made to the animal's spine and joints to enhance mobility and reduce discomfort.

Conditions Treated with Animal Chiropractic Care

Animal chiropractic can be used to address a variety of conditions in dogs or cats, including:

  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Intervertebral disc disease
  • Mobility issues
  • Muscle spasms and tension
  • Neck and back pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Post-surgical recovery
  • And more
Our team will work closely with you to determine if chiropractic care is the right treatment option for your pet and create a personalized treatment plan.

How Does Animal Chiropractic Work?

During a chiropractic session, the chiropractor will perform a thorough physical examination to identify areas of misalignment and dysfunction. Adjustments are made using controlled, precise movements to realign the spine and joints. These adjustments help to:
  • Improve nervous system function
  • Enhance joint mobility
  • Reduce pain and inflammation
  • Promote natural healing
Most pets tolerate chiropractic adjustments very well and experience immediate relief. Sessions are typically short, and many pets find them relaxing and comfortable.
