What is Animal Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a therapy in which a doctor’s hands are used to affect joints of the spine. It focuses on the biomechanical dysfunction of the spine and its effect on the entire nervous system throughout the body.
History of Chiropractic:
The term "chiropractic" can be broken down into two words from the Greek language "cheir", meaning hand and "praktos" meaning done. Animal chiropractic care has been around since the early 1900's. Initially, it was only used for greyhounds and horses to improve their performance on the track. As veterinary care has progressed, chiropractic care has become a popular choice for many pet parents to help manage pain, and other health ailments.
