Chiropractic is a drug-free natural approach to musculoskeletal management and optimum wellbeing. Chiropractors identify dysfunctional vertebrae and joints which aren’t moving properly. These areas of dysfunction stress adjacent soft tissues and irritate spinal nerves.
Manipulations are applied by hand or instrument in the case of dogs. There is no yanking or jerking of limbs. In addition many adjunctive procedures including laser, stretching and soft tissue procedures such as trigger point therapy, myofascial releases and massage may be used. Rehabilitation exercises will often be prescribed after treatment.

The musculoskeletal and neurological systems in horses and dogs are very similar to that of humans. Any sudden traumatic or ongoing repetitive stress placed on these systems can result in functional problems and symptoms in much the same way as humans.
