A safe and pain-free treatment.
Animal chiropractic care (VOM - Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation) involves adjusting the vertebrae to relieve pain and discomfort and improve the range of motion of a pet’s joints. It’s typically reserved for cats, dogs, and horses and is often used in conjunction with both traditional and holistic treatments.
When performed properly, chiropractic care is safe and pain-free. Adjustments improve blood flow, optimize the nervous system, and, sometimes, even eliminate a pet’s reliance on medication entirely. Though the need for surgery cannot always be prevented, chiropractic treatment can reduce the severity of secondary conditions caused by the primary injury.
Chiropractic care can be used to treat various health problems including:
- Neck, back, leg, or tail pain
- Injuries from slips and falls
- Muscle spasms
- Nerve problems
- Difficulty chewing
- Musculoskeletal weakness
While chiropractic treatment is commonly used to treat injuries, it can also be utilized for regular maintenance of the spine and joints.
