What is Animal Chiropractic?
Animal Chiropractic helps restore motion to a pet's joints to help the nervous system function better. Joints are meant to move but sometimes they can get "stuck." This is called vertebral subluxation complex or VSC. Chiropractic looks for VSCs and through specific adjustments helps to restore motion to these areas to help maximize the efficiency of the nervous system/body.
What Can Cause a Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC)?
- Activities/animal's job (hunting, agility, frisbee, showing, police dogs etc.)
- Birthing process
- Environment (where animal sleeps, flooring, etc.)
- Lack of exercise
- Surgery or history of surgery, anesthesia
What Are Some Signs a VSC Might Be Present?
