Animals, just like humans, need chiropractic care. Regardless of shape, size, or anatomy, the basic principles of chiropractic hold true to any animal with a spine. When vertebrae become misaligned, there is a disruption of nerve flow to whatever area of the body those nerves control, creating a number of health issues.
Animal chiropractic, also called veterinary chiropractic, offers a drug-free approach to pet health care. It’s important for your pets to receive routine animal chiropractic care because they can’t verbally tell us when something is wrong. Regular animal adjusting ensures they maintain a healthy spine and nervous system.
Dr. Lindz is a certified animal chiropractor through Parker University Veterinary Research Clinic. Her practice offers chiropractic care for small pets to large animals. Animal chiropractic is not intended to replace traditional veterinary care, but is a way to keep animals healthy, active, and energetic without the use of medications or surgery. When used together, chiropractic and veterinary care can provide the maximum health benefits to animals so they can live long, happy lives.
