Animal Chiropractic is a Thing

Owner and Certified Animal Chiropractor
Chiropractic can keep EVERYONE in the Game!
Many of our patients come to our clinic to get back to playing sports, exercising, or just to get their life back after an injury. Whether it’s playing golf, tennis, yoga, or swimming, normal body mechanics are required. We have all had injuries or painful conditions that prevented us from our normal activity, but when it interferes with exercise it can lead to a downward spiral of inactivity. We have seen too many cases of back pain that leads to inactivity which leads to muscle weakness, weight gain, and further pain and inactivity.
This can be a vicious cycle. It’s important, whether you’re a weekend warrior, a daily jogger, or even the canine athlete, to get back to activity as soon as possible after an injury is healed.
No matter the case, be it keeping canine athletes at their best, or helping the weekend golfer on the course, chiropractic can help athletes in many areas. Back pain is one of the most common and debilitating sports injuries. Nearly 80% of the US population will deal with back pain at some point during their life.
Chiropractic is one of the best suited options to treat back pain very effectively compared to most other modalities, including medications like NSAIDs and opioids. Other common sports injuries that we can treat as chiropractors are shoulder sprains, hip strains, tennis elbow, headaches, neck pain, IT band syndrome, and injuries from car accidents.
Did you know that Chiropractic is safe for everyone?! Yes everyone including kids, the elderly, and even your pets! It is a natural alternative to pain management as well as improving mobility and function.
Telltale signs that your pet has pain is limping, yelping when touched, crouching, flinching their head when being pet, not lifting their head or tail, and not doing usual activities such as jumping up onto the couch or bed. Pets are able to be adjusted just like people. The only difference is the number of vertebrae (bones of the spine) and angle of the joints.
Animals respond extremely well to chiropractic as they do not carry the same level of mental and/or emotional stress as people do. Animals do not need to be adjusted as frequently as people as they usually hold their adjustments better than we do.
