Veterinary chiropractic care restores proper alignment to the joints in the spinal vertebrae, restoring the natural function of the nerves exiting these vertebrae. A healthy nervous system is required for the normal function of the body. When nerve impulses are altered due to a misalignment of a joint (called a subluxation), this can lead to pain, weakness, disease, suppression of the immune system, and other imbalances.
Through the wear and tear of normal activity, and especially following an injury, the normal motion of the body can become altered. This can be obvious, such as a limp, or it can be subtle, with a slight shift of body weight away from the source of discomfort. Realigning the spinal column with chiropractic helps to prevent further injury that will occur if the normal motion of the body remains altered.
Using chiropractic therapy following an injury can help to prevent further injury from occurring in other areas of the body. Utilizing it as part of your pet’s regular wellness care is an excellent way to increase the energy, disease resistance, and health of your companion.
