The Piriformis muscle stabilizes the hip and sacroiliac [ pelvis/sacrum ]. When you have low back pain this muscle is affected and must be treated as well. I use cold laser therapy, foam roller and specific exercises that I give the patient to do at home. My 32 years of experience and being certified in sports injuries as well as Boston Marathon Chiropractic Director sets me apart from other chiropractors.

hip pain in dogs - lame dog rear leg - chiropractor for dogs south shore boston, cape cod, nantucket, boston

This is the Gluteus Medius Muscle in your dog. This muscle goes from the pelvis to the femur. Movement produced by this muscle is extension of the hip. If there is a loss of normal Sacroiliac motion then this muscle will be affected and your dog will have problems bringing the rear leg back as well as decreased jumping. Adjustments to the sacroiliac, myofascial work to the muscle along with cold laser will improve this condition.

problem with shoulder in dog. shoulder pain in dogs- chiropractor for dogs south shore boston, cape cod, nantucket, boston

This muscle is the biceps of the dog. It extends the shoulder and flexes the elbow. The nerve supply to this muscle comes from the lower neck and upper thoracic spine. If your dog has problems in extending the front leg this muscle may be at issue as well as a subluxation in the neck and or upper back. Many agility dogs that I adjust have an issue with weave poles and jumps, sometimes this is the problem.
