Chiropractic is an integral part of animal care. The intent of chiropractic is to achieve and maintain optimal movement of all joints and restore nerve function. Normal joint function prevents the onset of arthritis, relieves pain, and keeps the individual more mobile.
No part of your body escapes the dominance of your nervous system. Improper function of the spine due to slight misalignments—called subluxations—can cause poor health or function, even in areas far removed from the spine and spinal cord itself. Misalignments can also reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its ever-changing environment. Even the slightest malfunction of your spine may alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses, preventing that portion of your body from responding optimally.
Chiropractic is a natural form of healthcare that uses spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally. A chiropractic spinal adjustment—the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment—corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own.
Pricing can vary between cases.
A subluxation is a joint in which there is less than normal motion or a misalignment of a vertebrae. This causes occlusion of a foramen (area where the nerves come off the spinal cord), and the pressure on the nerve therefore decreases nerve impulses that go to different areas of the body. While most subluxations occur in the spine, they may also occur in extremities. Most often you hear someone say a bone is “out of place,” but this is not an accurate description of the problem. A bone truly out of place would also have ligament and other soft tissue tearing and be a veterinary emergency.
