What is an adjustment?

**ANIMAL CHIROPRACTIC DOES NOT DISPENSE MEDICATIONS, PERFORM SURGERY, INJECT MEDICATIONS OR ATTEMPT TO REPLACE NECESSARY TRADITIONAL VETERINARY CARE. ALWAYS CALL YOUR VETERINARIAN FOR ANY EMERGENCIES.**
A chiropractic adjustment is defined as a high velocity, low-amplitude, controlled thrust, by hand or instrument, on a specific joint articulation. Every joint has a specific angle of correction, and chiropractors have perfected this skill. Adjustments are very gentle and often do not hurt the animal.
Most animals accept both the exam and adjustment without signs of pain. When a painful area is found, the practitioner will use the gentlest techniques to reduce pain before delivering an adjustment. In cases of acute or extreme pain, the doctor will often delay the complete adjustment until your companion can be relaxed.
There may be some mild side-effects after getting adjusted. Some animals may feel sore afterward, but generally get over that after a couple days. Some animals may want to take a long nap because of the parasympathetic response they receive post adjustment. And some animals feel so great afterward that they become full of energy and just want to play. These are all very common side-effects.
In general, animals don't need quite as many treatments as a person simply because they don't undergo the same stressors as we do, so they can typically wait longer between each adjustment.
An animal chiropractic evaluation includes obtaining a case history consisting of information from the owner, information from the prior veterinary radiographs or laboratory reports, and information involving previous diagnoses and therapies.
Animal chiropractic practice necessitates an examination of the animal patient prior to the adjustment.
This examination may include:
The combined information will help the doctor determine the type of adjustment required at the time of service. With permission from your vet, I like to recommend whole food nutrition along with regular chiropractic care. I like to utilize essential oils in my treatments whenever I adjust my patients as long as they don't interfere with your vet's recommendations. I also utilize Rock-tape to support joints and promote healing to both acute and chronic injuries.
