Animals have spines and nervous systems too! Dogs, cats and horses can benefit from chiropractic care. Animals, like humans, can experience health benefits from chiropractic care. Most of the time, owners observe posture and gait changes with their animals. A dog might start limping or favoring stepping on one leg. With horses, riders will notice when their horse doesn't pick up a correct lead, or their horse becomes unwilling to perform certain movements. Animal chiropractic can help improve overall health and performance, help relieve pain, increase healing, and help an animal recover from an injury faster.

The purpose of adjusting animals is to improve central nervous system integration. Incoming signals to the brain affect motor impulses that control muscle movement, posture and gait. Adjustments alter how the brain processes incoming and outgoing nerve signals to control the systems of the body. This includes musculoskeletal health and function, immune responses and autonomic nervous system control.

The AVCA was established in 1989 as the certifying agency for doctors that perform chiropractic care on animals. The anatomy of animals is very different than humans, so it requires hundreds of hours of coursework to learn animal anatomy and physiology and adjusting techniques. Veterinarians or chiropractors can complete the extra training required to become certified to adjust animals.

Competition animals and family pets can benefit from chiropractic care!
