What is Animal Chiropractic?
Animal Chiropractic is a holistic – drug free approach to healthcare. It focuses on restoring proper motion to the spinal column and limbs. This is done via manual adjustments to the neck, back, ribs, pelvis and limbs. Animal Chiropractic keeps the Nervous System working optimally by releasing pinched nerves; allowing nerve signals to be transmitted efficiently, and allowing for muscle relaxation. Proper nerve function will lead to healthy organ function.
Chiropractic does not replace traditional veterinary medicine or surgery, but provides an alternative method of care. Chiropractic adjustments have proven to be invaluable in detecting and treating many issues.
What is Animal Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is defined as the stimulation of a specific point on the body with a specific method, resulting in a therapeutic homeostatic effect. Modern research shows that acupoints are located in the areas where there is a high density of free nerve endings, mast cells, small arterioles and lymphatic vessels. Most acupoints are motor points. A great number of studies indicate that stimulation of acupoints induce release a beta-endorphins, serotonin and other neurotransmitters. Therefore, acupuncture for pain relief is well support by these studies.
Acupuncture and chiropractic therapy can be mutually enhanced by focusing on different components of the musculoskeletal system. It is beneficial to integrate both modalities into an animal’s healthcare plan. Integrating the various forms of therapy can decrease the possibilities of injuries and improve the well-being of your friend.
