Chiropractic Services for Animals

Animal Chiropractic Therapy aims to restore function and mobility to the vertebrae of the spine and limbs and is an effective therapy to help maintain your animal's health. If the movement of the spine and joints becomes dysfunctional, nervous system signaling to muscles, tissues, organs and immune system function are all negatively impacted. Over time, these problems can reduce overall well-being and quality of life.

Stiffness, pain, muscle spasms, sensitivity to touch, digestive problems, lameness, weakness, gait abnormalities, and reduced athletic performance can all be symptoms of spinal or biomechanical hypomobility. Healthy, properly aligned joints support improved movement, agility, healing, and balanced neurological signaling.
