What is animal chiropractic/VSMT?

Animal Chiropractic or Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy is a field of animal health care that focuses on the preservation and health of the neuro-musculoskeletal system. It focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of vertebral subluxation complexes (VSCs) and dysfunctional joints of the spine and extremities.

The goal of the chiropractic appointment is to restore function and mobility to the compromised vertebra, and to re-establish neurologic transmissions. In more simple terms, it is a hands-on method of modulating the nervous system to restore balance to the body.

What conditions are most often treated with chiropractic?

Typically, conditions with a neurologic or biomechanical origin, such as degenerative joint diseases and musculoskeletal weakness or pain, are responsive to chiropractic manipulation. Decreased energy levels, resistance to jumping, and decreased play behaviors can all indicate that your pet could benefit from spinal manipulation.

How can my pet benefit from chiropractic?

Improvements are typically defined as a reduction in pain, an improved gait, improved athletic performance, and increased energy. It can also aid as an adjunct treatment after orthopedic conditions. It cannot replace the need for surgery but can help offset secondary problems that are caused by compensation for an injury.
