About Animal Chiropractic
Chiropractic care is an all-natural approach to health for humans and animals alike! People have sought out chiropractic care for many different reasons, including but not limited to increased disease resistance, improved posture, and better sports performance and movement. Both human and animal spines house the most important system in the body: the nervous system. The nervous system consists of our brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves that branch from the spinal cord and go out to the rest of the body. This allows communication with everything within the body. It controls every cell, tissue, and organ within our body so that we can function day to day. The nervous system makes it possible for us to move by sending signals to our skeletal muscle, breathe by sending messages to our lungs and pulmonary system, digest our food by communicating with our gastrointestinal system, and so much more. If there is interference anywhere along this communication pathway, it will result in dysfunction and a breakdown of the system. This dysfunction can have many different manifestations depending on what part of the communication has interference. It can lead to fatigue, muscle weakness, immune suppression, disease, pain, and many other symptoms. Chiropractic care addresses these interferences to our nervous system, or as we call them subluxations, by using a gentle adjustment to restore the body's ability to function optimally, communicate, and heal from within.
