Animal Chiropractic

Therapies: Animal Chiropractic/ Musculoskeletal Alignment

Animal chiropractic/musculoskeletal alignment is a holistic approach to many of the health and performance problems of the horse and dog. Chiropractic does not replace traditional veterinary medicine and surgery but provides a natural method of care. Chiropractic focuses on the health and proper functioning of the spinal column.

The Spinal Column

The spinal column of the horse is a complex structure made up of bones, ligaments, muscles, and nerves. The spine provides many crucial functions to the body. The functions of the spine are:

  1. Framework of support
  2. Muscle attachment
  3. Protection of the central nervous system
  4. Protection of internal organs.
