Chiropractic treatments involve manipulation of the bones of the spine. Gentle adjustments can release entrapped nerves and increase the flow of energy along the spine. For many conditions, chiropractic treatment relieves pressure on the spine and surrounding nerves, consequently reducing pain, and improving the health and mobility of the individual. For many patients undergoing initial treatment, chiropractic adjustments are recommended every 2 weeks for 3-4 treatments. They may then be spaced out depending on the patient’s condition and response to treatment. Preventative treatments can be performed on healthy individuals once or twice yearly and may prevent or delay the onset of mobility issues later in life. Both dogs and cats can receive chiropractic care from our veterinary chiropractor Dr. Abbie Whitehead.
