The first cervical vertebrae is a common area for subluxation as well as lower cervical region. Both these areas affect the front legs and can cause lameness. Cause is varied from playing to just being an active dog to also arthritis.
Chiropractic adjustments will fix the neck pain and lameness.

Cholesterol is not the problem - Homocystine is the problem - chiropractor south shore boston, chiropractor weymouth mass
Homocystine is created in the body as a natural product. At high levels it will cause damage to the artery linings making them more prone to have cholesterol plaques sticking and thus blocking blood flow.
Statin drugs have lowered cholesterol to prevent blocks but this is the WRONG approach. Statin drugs will cause muscle damage, loss of cognitive brain activity, diabetes, cataracts, and even sexual dysfunction like ED. Have you noticed more ED ads on TV, you want to know why? Well more and more men are being put on Statin Drugs thus more ED, follow the big pharm money trail.
How do you get high Homocystine levels? Stress from mental or physical activity. Intense exercise can rise homocystine. Athletes are prone to this damage then. To protect from atherosclerosis and thus cholesterol damage to flow all you need to do is take a good vit B complex, eat more green leafy veg, and take a creatine supplement. All these are good for many parts of the body.
Do not fall into the trap of Statins, most MD's are blind to these simple factors so do your research.

back pain or leg pain in a dog or person - chiropractor for dogs and chiropractor for people south shore boston
When pain is acute, sharp, inflamed, limping in dog or person. Use Ice 20 min on and 2 hours off. In dogs in should only be cool to touch. Inflammation is an increase in blood flow and when it is acute you do not want to increase blood flow thus anti inflam medications. So many Vets and MDs tell patients to use ice for 24 to 48 hours then heat but give them anti inflam meds past 48 hours. The heat increases blood flow which is what you do not want thus anti inflam meds. So use ice for as long as the pain is sharp or swollen or inflamed. Only use heat when pain is dull throb like in people and when dog is no longer yelping when touched.
