Chiropractic Care

Nearly every patient we see at Healing Tails (including cats) can benefit from chiropractic care and should receive regular chiropractic adjustments!

Nearly every patient we see at Healing Tails (including cats) can benefit from chiropractic care and should receive regular chiropractic adjustments! Most of our pets are everyday athletes visiting dog parks, running and playing.  Even the pets that are mostly couch potatoes can develop injuries and pain from repeatedly jumping up on and down from their favorite resting place. Chiropractic adjustments are great to incorporate as a preventative and holistic care plan, but they are especially important for patients suffering from many medical conditions.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care focuses on the health of your pet’s nervous system. A healthy nervous system is important because the nervous system ultimately controls everything in your pet’s body,  including organ function and movement. The spine is a complex system of the bones (vertebrae), ligaments, muscles and nerves which branch off of the spine and provide input to the organs and muscles of the body. Chiropractic care helps to ensure that the spine and all of the associated components are moving appropriately and communicating effectively with the rest of the body,  resulting in improved health, reduced pain and prevention of injuries. 

What happens during a treatment?

During your pet’s first appointment we will perform a thorough physical examination and review their medical history to ensure that chiropractic care is the best treatment option for them. Many owners seek out chiropractic care for their pets because they personally have benefitted from chiropractic care. Still,  we have many clients that are worried about how their pets will respond to the adjustments. The adjustments are gentle and most pets actually enjoy being adjusted. Occasionally a particular area will be uncomfortable or sensitive when we attempt to adjust it and then we may do a bit of massage or stretching before attempting to adjust that area. 

What results to expect?

During your appointment, we will discuss what to expect specifically for your pet. Many pets feel better 24-72 hours after their adjustment. Typically we like to see patients back for a recheck 7-10 days after their initial adjustment. The frequency of treatments thereafter depends on the age of the pet, their activity level, the nature of the injury or other medical conditions the pet may have.
