Hunched back and back pain dogs-chiropractor for dogs boston and south shore/cape cod

Dogs with hunched backs can be caused by subluxation and muscle spasm in the spine. Typically owners bring their dog to the vet and if there is no disease process, a prescription for rimadyl or duramax is prescribed. These meds are fine for the pain but will not correct the cause of the pain. I teach vets at options for animals chiropractic college and can tell u first hand that vets are not trained in the diagnosis and treatment of biomechanical issues such as subluxation and nerve interference. As a certified animal chiropractor this knowledge is integral to helping animals. The hunched back or "roached "back is very typical of this biomechanical issue called subluxation and is correctable by chiropractic adjustments and specific exercises done by the owner. I practice differently than most animal chiropractor since i use home exercise therapy that u as an owner can do. Your dog hunches the back to open up the spinal joints and take pressure off the irritated nerve. Please contact me if ur dog has this issue at 781-337-1180 Dr Bruce Indek

Slipped disc in dogs - chiropractor for dogs south shore boston- cape cod and boston

First of all the disc does not slip, it bulges or herniates. Both of these conditions may be helped by animal chiropractic. The gel inside the disc can bulge outwar creating pressure on nerves that travel to organs and muscles. If your vet feels that the disc is bulging or herniating it may be a good idea to bring your dog to the canine chiropractor as long as they have not lost use of the leg and or bladder control. Chiropractic adjustments involving traction and rehab exercises will help. Many times i advise the owner to also use acupuncture in conjunction. I have helped many dogs in this situation.

luxating patella - Chiropractor for dogs south shore boston

Luxating patella is a common problem that sometimes is no better after surgery. Many luxating patella issues are minor and your vet will elect not to operate. You must remember that the hip and low back not to mention the neck will compensate for this problem and develop subluxations [ stuck spinal joints irritating nerves ]. Your Vet will not recognize these subluxations unless they are certified in animal chiropractic.

Having your dog adjusted by an animal chiropractor and managing this problem over their lifetime with periodic chiropractic and exercises will help your dog live a healthy life.

The Muscle Cramps Guide


You won’t need a diagnosis to know when you’re having a cramp. It usually happens in one of the legs, and to say the pain is severe is an understatement. Cramps are very common in athletes and seem to occur more in hot, humid playing conditions than in other weather conditions. As bad as they hurt, they are not long-term sports injuries and they usually subside within a few minutes.

One of the problems dealing with cramps is that they tend to recur after the initial muscle spasm has returned to normal. In athletes with recurring cramps, some modifications in training (becoming acclimated to the exercise environment) and diet (more fluids and a better balance between fluids and minerals—salt, potassium, magnesium and calcium—lost in perspiration and those taken in) may be needed to provide a long-term solution.

How They Happen

There are several theories but no absolute explanations regarding how or why muscle cramps occur in athletes. They probably develop for different reasons in different people and are the result of a combination of factors, but according to Dr. E. Randy Eichner, team internist for the Oklahoma Sooners, the common denominator seems to be "salty sweating."
Among other possible causes are muscle fatigue, heavy exercise, dehydration and dietary mineral deficiencies—especially salt. A typical scenario is a football player who develops a cramp early in the season, late in the game or practice session, with fatigued muscles and playing in hot weather. It’s a perfect storm for cramps. Another is a tennis player (again early in the season, perhaps his or her first tournament of the year) toward the end of a match, stressful conditions and hot, humid weather. By the time all of those factors come together, it may be too late to correct the problem on the spot.

By the Numbers

The percentage of muscle cramps that involve either the quads, hamstrings or calves, according to one study

Who’s at Risk

Athletes who play outdoors in hot, humid conditions and sweat a lot are the most susceptible. Football players are the prime example, but tennis players, soccer players, field hockey and lacrosse athletes are at risk because of the nature of their sports and the time of year they usually practice and compete. Basketball players who train hard, are not well hydrated and play in gyms that are not air-conditioned are also targets for muscle cramps.


  • Sudden, involuntary muscle contractions or spasms
  • A hard knot of muscle tissue that may be visible beneath the skin
  • Extreme pain

Initial Treatment

  • Massage or put pressure on the area.
  • For cramps that last off and on for several days, apply cold packs for 15-20 minutes, 3-4 times a day for several days.
  • Use moist heat or warm baths later, 20-30 minutes at a time, several times a day.
  • Gently stretch the affected muscle or muscle group (for a calf cramp, try putting your weight on the affected leg and slightly bending your knees).

Comeback Strategy

Start a diet and hydration program that includes plenty of fluids and salt.


Incorporate these these prehab exercises into your comeback routine:
1. Soft Tissue Massage
  • Gently massage major muscle groups with a foam roll before and after activity, especially those prone to cramping.
2. Gentle Active Stretching
  • Use the muscle on the opposing side to stretch the cramping muscle. For example, with a cramp in a hamstring, lie on your back with your legs straight, keep one leg on the ground and lift your other leg up toward the ceiling.

How to Avoid It

  • Drink a sports drink containing 6-8 percent carbohydrate to help give you more energy during intense training and long workouts.
  • Drink a beverage that contains a small amount of sodium and other electrolytes (potassium and chloride).
  • Drink 10-16 ounces (two cups) of cold fluid about 15 to 30 minutes before workouts.
  • Drink 4 to 8 ounces of cold fluid during exercise at 10 to 15 minute intervals.
  • Practice drinking fluids while you train. Use a trial-and-error approach until you find the drink that works for you.
  • Give yourself as much time (preferably 1-2 weeks) to acclimate yourself to the environment in which you will train or compete.

Movement Prep

Incorporate these movement prep exercises before and after exercising:
  1. Soft Tissue Massage
  2. Active Isolated Stretching: Calf, Quadriceps / Hip Flexor, Adductor / Abductor, IT Band / Glute
  3. Any Movement Prep Activity (5-6 reps per side)
  4. Knee Hugs
  5. Leg Cradles
  6. Forward Lunge Elbow to Instep
  7. Inverted Hamstring Stretch
  8. Drop Squats
  9. Lateral Squats
  10. Backward Lunge + Twist

Dog Chiropractor south shore boston - back pain in dogs chiropractor

What is Animal Chiropractic?

My Friend published this article and thought it was worth posting:

Animal Chiropractic is a field of animal health care that focuses on the health of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. Nerves control everything that happens in your animals, and anything affecting the nervous system resonates throughout the entire body. When nerves become entrapped, this can interfere with the signaling to their destination tissue, including muscles and organs. As this occurs, the health of your animal can be affected, resulting in stiffness, tension, pain and even organ dysfunction. Additionally, when normal movement is affected it can impact your animal’s wellbeing and quality of life.

The goal of an animal chiropractor is to restore function and mobility to the bones of the spine, known as 'vertebrae' in an effort to re-establish nerve communication. This allows the body to perform at its optimum potential. Animal chiropractors use their hands to identify areas of restriction and apply a precise thrust on the immobile vertebrae in an effort to restore motion and remove nerve interference. When nerves efficiently communicate with all the structures in your animals’ bodies, healing and recovery results.

Animal Chiropractic is not meant to replace traditional veterinary care. It is not an alternative treatment, but rather an integrative method that, when used in conjunction with good traditional veterinary care, will provide years of healthy living. This is the beginning of a contemporary, comprehensive approach to your animal’s healthcare. It is an effective and valuable means of restoring and maintaining strength, vigor and well-being. By exploring and treating the root causes of your animal’s aches, pains and illnesses, you will ensure maximum improvement, top performance and an exceptional quality of life for the animal companions we love.

Disc Problems Chiropractor- Chiropractor Weymouth Mass Columbian Sq.

The Disc has circular bands of cartil. with a gel in the center. Sometimes those bands tear and allow the gel to bulge outward putting pressure on spinal nerves and causing back and or leg pain.

Chiropractic Adjustments target this disc area and can help remove the bulge as well as the pain without drugs or surgery.

Patella luxation in dogs- bunny hopping in dogs - Chiropractor for dogs south shore boston and boston

Luxating Patella is common. It can be caused by a tilt of the pelvis causing the sacroiliac joint to lock thus inhibiting muscle movement in the thigh and knee. It can be caused by abnormal development in the knee. It can be caused by subluxation within the lower extremity. Surgery is the last resort.
Please consult an animal chiropractor for help. The chiropractor will adjust any subluxations and give you rehab exercises to aid your dog. I have helped many dogs live a great life without surgery. If it is severe then surgery is a must.

Chiropractor for horse and rider - Chiropractor for horses north shore and south shore boston

 The following will be effective if you perform specific exercises and have your sacroiliac joints checked by the chiropractor. contact Dr Bruce Indek at 781-337-1180 or email at

 "The pelvic tilt is a controlled movement of the pelvis using the lower back muscles and the abdominal. If the lower abdominal contract the pelvis will tilt backwards, (middle diagram)your lower back will round or flex or bend and your seat bones will tuck underneath you. When your lower back muscles contract the pelvis will tilt forwards (left diagram)and the lower back will arch. When the muscles are resting the pelvis will be in a neutral position (right diagram)

This forwards and backwards movement is the pelvic tilt and it is very important for horse riders to be able to control and use.
By isolating one of these muscle groups the rider can use their seat in the saddle effectively to apply aids.The ability to control and actually do this is extremely important for horse riders. This is the beginning of an independent deep seat."
