Chiropractic for Pets
When it comes to chiropractic services you probably don't immediately think of your dog. After all, your dog isn't sitting in an office chair all day with bad posture. Your dog isn't an upright animal with gravity pulling down on its spine. So why would your dog need an adjustment? Although dogs do not suffer from the same musculoskeletal disorders as humans, certain conditions can arise, leading to chronic pain and discomfort you may not be aware of. This is where chiropractic for pets comes in. At Integrative Veterinary Wellness, we have years of experience providing residents of Richardson, TX, and the surrounding areas with integrative veterinary medicine.
Tweaks and Nerve Pain
Your pet probably gets pretty excited when they see you walk through the door. All that tail wagging sure is nice to see. But excessive tail wagging can lead to chronic pain conditions such as slipped discs, especially in older dogs. Your pet’s sleeping posture and the surface your pet is sleeping on can also contribute to musculoskeletal issues. Our integrative medicine veterinarian will analyze your dog’s body to uncover misalignments that are contributing to pain. We will use this information to create a chiropractic care plan tailored to your dog’s needs. Chiropractic for pets will relieve your pet’s pain, improve his or her range of motion, and enhance his or her body’s natural healing process.
Thankfully, chiropractic issues in dogs are usually not as severe as they are in humans, meaning it will not take many sessions to restore the natural curve of your dog’s spine. No matter the condition your dog is suffering from, our integrative medicine veterinarian will provide your dog with the most effective chiropractic care possible.
Integrative Medicine Veterinarian in Richardson, TX
There are some clear signs that your dog requires pet chiropractic care. If your dog’s muscles twitch and tense up when you touch certain areas of their back, it may indicate an alignment problem. Some dogs alter the way they walk to compensate for an injury. This can curve the back further and lead to more pain. At Integrative Veterinary Wellness, our integrative medicine veterinarian has years of experience providing residents of Richardson, TX, and the surrounding areas with chiropractic services for pets.
