Many people are unfamiliar with chiropractic care as a form of heath care for humans, so it's no surprise that most people don't consider the option for their pets.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the world's largest non-drug approach to health care. Chiropractic deals with the entire nervous system, not just back problems.
The body has a lymphatic system and spinal nerves, which exit the spinal column between the vertebrae. These branch out from the spinal cord and supply nearly every organ, tissue and vessel in the body. The misaligned vertebrae (called Subluxations) put pressure on these spinal nerves. In this way, these "Subluxations" affect the flow of nerve impulses to the rest of the body. Adequate nerve and lymphatic flow is vital to proper functioning of the entire body
The animal Chiropractor adjusts the misaligned vertebrae. Proper function of the nervous and lymphatic system is then restored. In this way Chiropractic addresses the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.
What Causes Subluxations?
Trauma - the most common, can be major trauma like getting hit by a car, or a minor trauma like a slip and fall. The birthing process is a common cause of Subluxations as well. However, these can take months or even years to materialize into noticeable symptoms, all the while doing silent damage to the animal.
Environmental- chemicals, poor diet and drugs fall into this category.
Emotional & Physical Stress- can affect the immune system of animals just like people. Skeletal issues like Poor confirmation (long backs) can cause stress on the body too.
