What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is concerned with promoting good health through restoration and maintenance of a properly functioning neuromuscular system. This is achieved by diagnosing vertebral subluxation complexes, which are malalignments of a joint resulting in reduced movement. The chiropractic adjustment delivers a low amplitude, high velocity thrust in a line of correction specific to the particular joint’s anatomy to improve movement. A chiropractic examination and treatment consists of gait analysis, an evaluation of musculature and soft tissue structures, and motion palpation of each individual joint of the vertebral spine and extremities to assess range of motion. Joints that are found to have reduced range of motion are treated with a chiropractic adjustment.
How does it work?
Restoration of proper motion of the vertebral spine optimizes the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system and neurology of the body. As a result, communication between the spinal cord and the rest of the body improves and allows the body to function optimally.
Chiropractic does not replace traditional veterinary medicine, but is instead intended to work concurrently with traditional medicine to optimize health.
