How Animal Chiropractic Works

Achieving Optimal Health Through Spinal Adjustments

With Animal Chiropractic, we focus on the health of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. Any damage to the nervous system affects the whole body including muscles and organs, sometimes causing loss of mobility, stiffness, tension, pain, and even organ dysfunction. The goal of an animal chiropractor is to restore function and mobility to compromised spinal vertebra in an effort to re-establish neurologic communication. This allows the body to perform at its optimum potential. Animal chiropractors use their hands to identify areas of restriction and apply a precise adjustment to the vertebrae to restore motion and remove nerve interference. When nerves efficiently communicate with all the structures in animals’ bodies, healing and recovery results.
