At Easthampton Chiropractic, we treat people and pets of all ages and are proud to say that our chiropractor has performed therapies on both show dogs and dogs with functional and mobility issues. Treating pain, hip problems and chronic arthritis, we are uniquely qualified to provide veterinary chiropractic manipulation to both large and small animals.

Animal Chiropractic is a field of animal health care that focuses on the preservation and health of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. Why? Nerves control everything that happens in your animals. Anything adversely affecting the nervous system will have detrimental effects that will resonate throughout the entire body. The command centers of the nervous system are the brain and spinal cord which are protected by the spine. The spine is a complex framework of bones (vertebra), ligaments, muscles and nerves. If the movement and biomechanics of the vertebra become dysfunctional, they can interfere with the performance of the nerves that are branching off of the spinal cord and going to the all of the muscles and organs. As this occurs, your animal can lose normal mobility; resulting in stiffness, tension, pain and even organ dysfunction. Additionally, when normal movement is affected, and left unattended, it will ultimately impact your animal’s entire wellbeing and quality of life.

In our experience, chiropractic adjustment can improve gastrointestinal, respiratory and cardiovascular disorders, in pets. Pets with suspected herniated discs or neurological conditions have responded very well to chiropractic care. In some cases, we have seen results in only one or two treatments. If you suspect your pet is experiencing pain from something that could be fixed with chiropractic treatment or if treatment has been suggested by your veterinarian, call us today. We’ll set up an appointment so our friendly chiropractor can create a treatment plan tailored to your pet’s needs.
