Does my pet need Chiropractic Care?
Animals are exposed to situations every day that can cause misalignment of the bones of the spine, also called vertebral subluxations. These situations may not seem to have an effect on them immediately, but can have a significant impact on their bodies over time. Chiropractors help restore function within the body through chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments are specific, and made within the normal range of motion of the joint. Once interference is removed from the nervous system, the body can begin to heal and return to optimum function.
