Did u know chiropractic does more than treat back pain in people and animals? Chiropractic evaluates the spine for non-symptomatic nerve inflammation
and these nerves control all body function. So the adjustment removes nerve irritation and improves function of all systems and tissues in the body.

Animals with Back Pain the tip of the problem - Animal Chiropractor South Shore Boston - Cape Cod - Boston - North Shore Boston

Back pain is the end result of an issue. Animals are stoic and do not show pain until the problem has progressed. When you have your animal adjusted the aim is to correct the cause of the pain not just relieve the pain. This will normally take more that one visit since as stated the problem has persisted usually before the animal has shown symptoms.
Please call Dr Bruce at 781-337-1180 or email at
to schedule an appointment. I make house calls and barn calls.

dogs with back pain - chiropractor for dogs south shore boston - boston - cape cod

Dogs are very stoic so by the time they show symptoms of back pain the issue has advanced. Typical Vet diagnosed as disc problems, which is not the most common cause. I teach Vets at the Options for Animals Chiropractic College and I can tell you first hand that the Vets tell me that biomechanics of the spine and function are not taught in Vet school only extreme trauma, cancer, and disc problems are discussed so if your dog has no fractures or cancer then they deduce disc problems.

Animal chiropractors are trained to diagnose mechanical dysfunction of the spine as well as the nerve pinching that will occur. I have been adjusting dogs for years and I can tell you that spinal subluxations where the spine is stuck in motion and causing nerve irritation is the most common cause of back pain in house pet dogs all the way up to the high performance agility dog.

Please call Dr Bruce at 781-337-1180 or email at
to schedule an appointment. I do house calls all over New England.

animal chiropractor south shore boston, boston,cape cod, north shore boston

Please only access Certified Animal Chiropractors such as from the American Vet Chiropractic Assoc. If your Dr is not certified and is doing it for free or a charge then you are risking your dog's health as well as your liability.

There are many Drs that feel that since they adjust people why not animals. Well first of all the anatomy is different and they can hurt your dog. To be certified you must be a Lic chiropractor or vet and attende a 215 hour course in animal chiropractic and take a written and practical certification exam. This is all done to protect your animal so please do not let your Dr adjust without the training, it is just a bad idea!

Horse with back pain as well as Dog with back pain

VSC stands for Vertebral Subluxation Complex. The most common cause for back pain!
Restricted movement of the spinal bones called vertebra occur at the level of the Facet Joints as seen in this picture. The Facet Joints are literally the hinges that your spine moves about. When these Facet Joints become restricted they can irritate spinal nerves which are the main information highway from the brain to the organs and muscles as well as from the organs and muscles to the brain.
VSC can cause back pain or not. VSC can exist without symptoms and secretly diminish health of organs and muscles until enough damage is done and symptoms occur.
Symptoms can be lameness, sluggish behavior, outright pain, or organ dysfunction.
Cause of VSC can be trauma, age, repeated physical stress such as a poor fitting saddle improper harness, not warming up enough before activity, demanding sports such as dressage, jumping, agility.

lame dog - Dog Chiropractor South Shore Boston, Cape Cod, Boston - Animal Chiropractor

Lameness in dogs can be caused by a back issue, shoulder, hip, or paw.  Many times owners will take their dog to the Vet and the Vet will not find any cause for the lameness and prescribe Meds only. After many years of providing Animal chiropractic to dogs I can tell you that the back or shoulder is often the cause.

Dogs carry 60 percent of their body wt on the front end and often the shoulder can be subluxated [stuck in motion] causing lameness. If the back is involved then more wt shifts to the front legs and thus lameness.

Back issues that are very common are Subluxations in the spine.
This condition is where the spinal joints get stuck in motion and irritate nerves and muscles. This condition is not treated by your vet which is why an Animal Chiropractor is essential.

Please call me with questions or to schedule an appointment. I make house calls.
