||WHAT IS ANIMAL CHIROPRACTIC?
Animal chiropractic is a relatively new profession and it has great potential for dealing with many animal health problems.
Chiropractic is a drugless, holistic method of health care that can be applied to any animal with a spinal column. Chiropractic theory is
based on the nervous system that is housed in the spinal column and how it relates to the proper functioning of the entire body. The spinal
cord carries all the nerves that go to every muscle and organ in the body. These nerves exit the spinal column through areas between vertebrae,
which are the individual spinal bones. Chiropractors believe that adequate nerve supply is vital to the proper functioning of the entire body.
When the vertebral bones are misaligned even very slightly, they affect the nerves and the flow of nerve impulses. A chiropractic adjustment is
aimed at correcting the misalignment and restoring the proper functioning of the nervous system. This is turn allows the musculoskeletal system to work properly.
