Canine Chiropractic Care
Dogs can benefit from alternative medicine including chiropractic care. Chiropractic refers to the practice of manipulating the spine to help treat certain conditions and diseases. It is non-surgical, drug-free, and is effective for disorders affecting interactions between the nerves, muscles, and skeleton. These disorders can greatly limit your pet’s quality of life, but we’re here to help. To get started, give us a call at (870) 935-8387 to discuss your pet’s needs.
How We Use Pet Chiropractic Care
When the biomechanics of the spine become dysfunctional through overuse, injury, or an existing condition, issues and pain begin to occur. The spinal cord connects all your pet’s muscles and organs through the nervous system. Therefore, when it is compromised, it negatively affects other aspects of your pet’s body by blocking communication signals through the nervous system. This causes stiffness, pain, and even organ dysfunction.
With chiropractic we can treat:
- Degenerative joint disease
- Rehab from fractures
- Rehab from joint surgery
- Hip dysplasia
- Sport dog injuries and strains
Immobility and hindered movement affect your pet’s entire well-being and quality of life. Chiropractic can relieve their discomfort, restore harmony to their bodies, and help them lead a mobile, pain-free life. Pet chiropractic care is not limited to sick or injured animals; it is also invaluable for athletic pets such as hunting dogs, agility athletes, and more.
Combining the Power of Alternative Therapies
While chiropractic alone has effective, long-lasting results, when we couple it with other therapies such as acupuncture and physical therapy, your pet benefits even further. Acupuncture helps to further release any tension built up in the body, increase circulation, and improve nerve communications, too. Physical therapy then helps to improve your pet’s balance, flexibility, and strength.
