HOW CAN YOUR DOG BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC?
Your dog’s total physical, mental and emotional well being can benefit from dog chiropractic care. When treating a patient with chronic pain, if you take away or lessen that pain the body as a whole reacts positively to the experience.
More specifically, dog chiropractic care can help repair your dog’s muscles to allow the joints to move freely. Your dog’s muscles are healthy if they are free of spasm, weakness, discomfort, knots or degeneration, which is especially common in elderly dogs.
The nervous system can also be affected by poor, or blocked, energy flow (communication waves between the brain and all areas of the dog’s body). This communication can be blocked when the nerves are pinched, which in turn keeps your dog from performing at his optimal level.
Blockages can also cause extreme pain and if left untreated can lead to overall poor health for your dog.
Finally, when the basic skeletal system is not aligned, the body is unable to function at its full potential. Have you seen any signs that your dog may not be exercising, playing or living at his full potential? If so, scheduling an assessment with a local AVCA licensed and certified dog chiropractor may be beneficial for you and your dog.
