Chiropractic care for your canine companion is very much like that of chiropractic care for yourself. It is a profession that takes a hands-on, drug-free approach to aid veterinarians with disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and enhance performance. When utilized concurrently with veterinary care, many of your canine’s neuromusculoskeletal conditions respond dramatically, allowing rehabilitation to occur quickly and efficiently. The focus of chiropractic care is the proper alignment and movement of all joints in the body, especially the spine.


Common indicators of abnormal spinal alignment
