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.
