Too often dogs are diagnosed with disc problems and the actual issue is spinal subluxations which is a movement problem in the spime causing nerve pinching. A Certified Animal Chiropractor can correct these subluxations w adjustments and cold laser.
Always check to see if the chiropractor is certified by the american vet chiropractic assoc since ther are doctors adjusting animals who are not certified and have not attended a 215 hour post grad course.

dog sore back chiropractor for dogs south of boston, boston, north shore bostonl cape cod

Many dogs can experience a sore back and your vet will usually evaluate for disc problems and most cases this is not the problem. If your vet finds no disc problems then u will get meds for pain and inflammation. This approach will not fix the problem but rather treat the symptoms and cause other new issues due to compensation.

Most commonly the issue is a subluxation of the spine which is literally a spinal joint that can get stuck in motion causing nerve pain and muscle strain. A Certified Animal Chiropractor can easily evaluate your dog for this and a chiropractic adjustment along with cold laser can correct this. Your vet is not experienced in diagnosis of this issue so it will not be detected, I teach at Options for Animals chiropractic college and can tell you that the Vets that I teach are always amazed when I teach them about spinal biomechanics since this is not taught in their school.

sore withers in a horse - chiropractor for horses North and South Shore Boston

Proper Saddle Fit and Your Horse’s Withers

Many times, I see horses with sore withers, and the owner tells me the saddle was fitted recently. Upon examination, I find the withers are sore and sensitive. When I look at the saddle, I can see it appears to be too far forward on the horse’s back or pinching the trapezius muscle (please see the red area in the picture). This muscle will also cause tightness in the neck. The remedy is to have a certified saddle fitter carry out your saddle fitting, and to have your chiropractor or veterinarian check for pinching at the panels.
