Veterinary Chiropractic/Animal Adjusting

 

In 1996 and 1997 I attended the veterinary chiropractic course given by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association.
I was certified in animal adjusting (animal chiropractic) and received my CVC degree: Certified Veterinary Chiropractor.
 
Animal Chiropractic involves the adjustment or release of fixated/stuck areas of the spinal column and extremities.
   
  Animal adjusting or chiropractic is based on the fact that all structures of the body including organs and glands depend on their nervous innervation for proper function.If slight fixations in the body occur due to injuries or normal daily activities, it can result in reduced function of nerves in the area and secondary reduction in organ and tissue function.

The practice of chiropractic includes the adjustment of vertebrae and the adjustment of the extremities to relieve any fixations and allow nerves to function normally again, thus restoring proper health.

  Common symptoms and reasons why Chiropractic may be a
good choice for your pet:
 
Lameness or Paralysis
 
Trouble getting up and down
 
Seizures or neurological problems
 
Recovery from illness or injury
  Behavior or mood change
 
Chronic health problems that do not resolve as expected
  Neck, back, leg, and tail pain
  Treatment in early stages of hip dysplasia
  Muscle spasms and nerve problems
  Injuries from slips, falls or accidents
  Jaw or TMJ problems, difficulty chewing
  Sports injuries or other events like dog agility training.
  Post-surgical care
 
Bowel, bladder, and internal medicine disorders

Animal Chiropractic is a new field that is in high demand. Many people choose this alternative route, before resorting to expensive surgeries and other procedures. Our bodies, as well as our pets' bodies, are made to heal themselves.
