Chiropractic care

Chiropractic is a philosophy, science and art. We understand that every living organism is a self-regulating, self-healing entity controlled by the nervous system. If nerves become irritated, communication throughout the body is disrupted affecting function of cells, tissues, and organs.

Scientific research has shown that chiropractic adjustments support health and vitality by removing interference in the nervous system and allowing for improved neurological control of the body. Interference may be caused by  physical, chemical and emotional stressors such as injuries, nutritional imbalances and mental fatigue. If interference is not removed, it often leads to more issues like pain, stiffness, delayed healing, inefficient digestion, sleep disruption, and behavioral changes. 

Many different chiropractic techniques have been developed to evaluate and address neurological interference. We primarily us our hands to perform examinations and adjustments. In some cases, x-rays are necessary to further evaluate internal structures or an instrument is used to augment an adjustment.

Chiropractic is helping creatures great and small function better and live happier lives by correcting a condition called subluxation. It is a condition characterized by lack of motion in a joint, and it interferes with the function of the nervous system. Because the nervous system controls all bodily functions, subluxation can lead to a multitude of issues including dysfunction and disease. 

 

Animals can tell us a lot without using words. Signs of subluxation include muscular imbalances, gait irregularities, lameness, and resistance to certain movements. Loss of normal mobility causes stiffness and pain, which may lead to changes in appetite, behavioral problems, and progressive dysfunciton throughout the body. Many issues resolve with chiropractic care because the body is better able to heal and self-regulate when the nervous system is clear of interference. 

Humans ask animals to perform tasks and fill rolls that add to the typical stress of living in the world, so we believe it is essential for animals to receive thorough neuromusculoskeletal evaluation and chiropractic care for the purpose of restoring optimal nerve function and supporting optimal performance.
