What is Spinal Manipulation Therapy?
Spinal manipulative therapy is a practice similar to chiropractic adjustments for humans.
Pets who experience pain with movement or have limited mobility can benefit from this form of physiotherapy as it promotes healing without the use of chemicals or drugs.
Restoring joint movement and nerve function will ultimately reduce pain while improving range of motion, soft tissue function, and overall quality of life.
Uses for Spinal Manipulation
Spinal manipulation can treat disorders of the nervous system, spine, pelvis, and joints, including:
- Sports injuries
- Chronic lameness
- Urinary incontinence
- Neurological conditions
- Hip and elbow dysplasia
- Some behavioral concerns
- Neck and back injuries or pain
We will conduct a preliminary evaluation of your pet to establish their current health and specific needs.
This examination will assess the joints, muscles, spine, nervous system, gait, posture, and the alignment of the vertebra to determine the range of motion and level of function.
Spinal manipulation will begin with small but precise pressure in the direction of joint motion, helping to restore normal motion and improved joint movement.
Our goal is to restore a pet's health as quickly and efficiently as possible. The number of required treatments to achieve that goal will depend on the animal's condition and needs.
