What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is the practice of handling a pet’s spine to treat disease or ease discomfort. Chiropractic care is centered around the idea that the spine is connected to many structures within the body, as well as the nervous system, and that a corrected spine can improve movement and reduce pain. As a result, chiropractic care can help to slow or stop the progression of certain diseases.
Chiropractic care can also be used alongside traditional veterinary treatments to improve mobility and help your pet continue recovering from certain diseases and illnesses. Chiropractic care is frequently used alongside veterinary treatment for neck pain, hip dysplasia, back pain, musculoskeletal weakness, and more.
