What is Animal Chiropractic?

Animal Chiropractic works the same way that Chiropractic does with a person. The body is a self-healing, self-organizing system. Chiropractic adjustments remove the interference to these God-given processes so the body can function as it was designed.

Think of the body like a house: the spine is the electrical box, and the nerves are the wiring. If you flip off one of the breakers in the electrical box, the wires from those breakers have no electricity running through them. Therefore, whatever is at the other end won't work right. It's the same in the spine. If one or more of the vertebrae are out of alignment, the nerves can't function properly because there is interference to them due to the bone being subluxated (out of alignment).

When this happens some of the electrical signals passing through the nerves get blocked and don't reach their destination. Then, whatever those nerves control, be it the heart, lungs, liver, stomach, skin, muscles, etc. CANNOT function at 100% because some of the messages telling it what to do can't get there. This may not cause a noticeable change for quite some time. By the time you notice a problem or start to experience symptoms, many unwanted changes have already happened.

The idea behind Chiropractic is to get adjusted regularly so the nervous system and body can function as close to 100% as possible and these undetected, unwanted changes will be reversed before they become a major problem, or possibly never happen at all. This is actually the cause of every disease and every symptom known today.

In actuality, all people, dogs, horses, cats, and every other living creature with a spine would greatly benefit from being adjusted regularly. Still, if you aren't sure if your animal needs an adjustment, it doesn't hurt to have their spine checked to find out.
