Chiropractic Care

Veterinary Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy concerned with good health through restoration and maintenance of a properly functioning neuro-musculoskeletal system, without the use of drugs or surgery.

Veterinary Chiropractic care is a manual therapy, which can be used to improve many health and performance problems. It focuses on the biomechanical dysfunction of the spine and its effect on the entire nervous system throughout the body.

Veterinary Chiropractic treatment does not replace traditional veterinary medicine. However, it can provide additional means of diagnosis and treatment options for spinal problems, as well as biomechanical-related musculoskeletal disorders. Veterinary Chiropractic can often eliminate the source of acute or chronic pain syndromes.

Your First Chiropractic Visit

Chiropractic medicine is a form of holistic medicine, because chiropractic technique treats the body as a whole rather than treating it symptomatically. At your pet’s first visit, the doctor will discuss your pet’s history, and the issues that brought you and your pet to the clinic. If you are unfamiliar with chiropractic technique, the doctor will explain how and why chiropractic works prior to your pet’s adjustments.

There are many forms and styles of chiropractic medicine. At Holistic Veterinary Care, doctors practice “the short-lever technique,” a proven, safe and effective method.

Following your pet’s adjustment, the doctor may make recommendations regarding:

  • activity level
  • nutritional changes
  • supplements

These recommendations will help your pet with post-treatment healing.
 

A medical cannabis law for animals will allow veterinarians to provide guidance regarding safe and effective use for pets. Join the effort to legalize medical cannabis for pets in California.
