Restore – Normal function to joints and muscles to reduce pain, dysfunction and discomfort
Maintain – Optimum Function of joints and muscles to discourage continued or new injury
Enhance – Nervous system communication to all muscles and joints for best performance
Animals normally display pain or discomfort through changes in behaviour and temperament. The way they walk, sit, or an inability to settle or get comfortable and stiffness after being still for a while, are their way of telling us they may be uncomfortable and shouldn’t be ignored.
Whilst medication can help manage these symptoms, chiropractic for animals has been used for decades to help restore normal function of joints and muscles to reduce pain and improve the quality of life of your best friend.
Daniel is a McTimoney trained human chiropractor that trained to treat animals with the International Academy of Veterinary Chiropractic in Germany. His particular interest in treating small animals is driven by a personal understanding of the important close relationship of an animal and it’s owner, and how comforting it is to maintain that relationship for as long as possible. Daniel is a member for the General Chiropractic Council and also joint chair of the McTimoney Chiropractic Association Animal group.
What is animal chiropractic? ~ Animal chiropractic is a safe and precise manual therapy used to treat household pets, agility dogs and working dogs and can support young and old animals depending on the need. Chiropractic care is also used to help manage the symptoms of arthritis in older dogs to help reduce pain, increase comfort and support a better quality of life in their latter years.
How do I know if my pet needs chiropractic care? ~ Changes in behaviour or temperament and changes in the way your pet walks, sits or an inability to settle or get comfortable, combined with stiffness after being still for a while are often indicators they may be in discomfort and may benefit from chiropractic care.
My pet is on medication for pain, what else can I do? ~ Whilst medication does effectively manage symptoms of joint and muscular pain, chiropractic for animals has been used for decades to help restore normal function of joints and muscles to effectively reduce pain and can alter pain thresholds which often enhances the benefits of pain relief.
