Dogs with Disc Problems - Chiropractor for dogs with Disc problem south shore boston, boston, cape cod, nantucket

The disc is made up of the annulus fibrosis [ pink part ] and the inner gel material called the nucleus pulposus [ blue part ]. The annulus is like rings on a tree but instead of wood they are rings of cartilage. The nucleus is gel like material. The annulus can form cracks and allow nucleus gel to ooze and bulge the the annulus outward - called a Bulging Disc, as seen below [ the green part ].
If the nucleus gel moves all the the way out and breaks through the annulus rings, then this is called  a  - Herniated Disc Type 1 - as seen below.

Often times chiropractic adjustments, traction, acupuncture and chinese herbs cal return your dog to an improved state without surgery, as long as it is not herniated out as in Type 1 above. The time factor is important and the sooner your dog is seen the better. Alway consult your vet first then contact the animal chiropractor.

Arthritis in hips of dogs - chiropractor for dogs with arthritis boston, cape cod, south shore boston.

Arthritis can be helped by a certified animal chiropractor. Not every chiropractor is certified by the american vet chiropractic assoc so check.
If the arthritis is in the hind end then your dog will put more wt on the front end and strain the shoulders and neck.
Chiropractic can help with the front end issue as well as improve movement and decrease pain where the arthritis is. Adjustments along with cold laser and rehab exercises that you can do with your dog will help. 
Most Vets will not tell you to bring your dog to a animal chiropractor so please check out my webpage at as well as email me at

Cruciate ligament tear in dogs - Chiropractor for dogs that are lame - Chiropractor south shore boston cape cod boston

There are two ligaments that stabilize your dogs knee from front to back, they are called the Cruciate Ligaments. The name comes from the cross that they form within the knee. Some dogs tear these ligaments when they jump up for frisbees and balls. Sometimes surgery is needed so always see your vet first. It is especially important to have these dogs adjusted by the animal chiropractor to keep the compensation stress minimized and to prevent the other knee cruciate from tearing. Physical therapy like underwater treadmill will also help.
