Chiropractic Care


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. 

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

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.

These conditions include:​

  • Arthritis

  • Post surgical patients (TPLO/CCL repair, hip surgery, etc)

  • Allergies

  • Seizure disorders

  • Allergies

  • Kidney disease

  • Tripods/amputees

  • Hip dysplasia

  • Back pain
