What is a Spinal Adjustment?
Spinal adjustment or manipulation is a practice similar to chiropractic adjustments for humans.
Pets who experience pain with movement or have limited mobility can benefit from this form of physiotherapy as it promotes healing without using chemicals or drugs.
Restoring joint movement and nerve function will ultimately reduce pain while improving the range of motion, soft tissue function, and overall quality of life.
Uses for Spinal Adjustments
Spinal adjustments or manipulation can help treat conditions affecting the nervous system, spine, pelvis, and joints, including:
- Sports injuries
- Chronic lameness
- Urinary incontinence
- Neurological conditions
- Hip and elbow dysplasia
- Neck and back injuries
- Behavioral concerns
What To Expect
Our vets will perform a preliminary evaluation of your pet to determine their current health and specific needs.
This examination will assess the joints, muscles, spine, nervous system, gait, posture, and the alignment of the vertebra to determine the range of motion and level of function.
The spinal adjustment will begin with small but precise pressure in the direction of joint motion, helping to restore normal motion and improve joint movement.
We aim to restore a pet's health quickly and efficiently. The number of treatments that your pet requires to achieve that goal will vary depending on your companion's current condition and needs.
