Lameness in Dogs - Chiropractor for dogs Mass.

Lameness can occur due to many issues. A most common cause is soft tissue such as muscle, tendon, ligament as well as vertebrae subluxation. Muscles stabilize joints and ligaments define the range of motion a joint can move. Subluxation can short circuit the motor nerves which control these muscles and allow for improper support.

Immobility of a joint can cause degeneration within 7 days. It is imperative to have your dog checked by a Board Certified Animal Chiropractor to prevent early signs of degeneration and thus a shorter life span.

"slipped" disc in dogs - Dog Chiropractor Quincy Mass

The term " slipped" is really an incorrect statement. Disc's can herniate or bulge. If your dog has a disc problem, getting them to their Vet is urgent. Symptoms such as dragging leg, refusal to drink or eat, accidents in the house. Once the Vet has evaluated the dog and it is determined that surgery is not essential, then chiropractic adjustments, exercises and acupuncture are what is needed. The sooner all this begins the quicker will be the recovery.

Back pain in horses and dogs - Animal Chiropractor quincy ma

Receptors are the key. What does that mean?
Well did you know that 90 percent of the information that enters the spinal cord are from sensory receptors in muscle. So if your dog or horse has overextended themselves they are putting excessive information into the spinal cord which in turn will over excite nerves to muscles and set your animal up for subluxation and back pain.

Chiropractic adjustments help break that vicious nerve pathway cycle allowing the muscles to function normally again and diminish the pain.
