Animal Chiropractic Care has been proven to be useful with pets who suffer from pain in their nervous or musculoskeletal system. Animal chiropractors look for restricted movements of the joints in the spine, which affects their whole body. Chiropractic adjustments are sometimes used as an alternative to taking prescription medicine. This treatment will reduce aches, pains, creaks, and strains and allow normal movement at the affected joints and surrounding muscles.
What is a chiropractic adjustment in pets?
A chiropractic adjustment uses pressure to manipulate joints in your pet’s body. This force helps realign the spine, reduces pain and discomfort, and allows normal movement. The treatment is gentle, and your pet is likely to feel immediate relief.
What conditions can animal chiropractic adjustments help?
Pets with the following conditions may benefit from a chiropractic adjustment:
- TMJ issues or a sore jaw
- Neck or back pain
- Injury from slips and falls
- Problems moving around or stiffness
- Poor performance in sports
- Abnormal walking patterns

Who can perform an adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment can only be performed by veterinarians or chiropractors who have special training in Animal Chiropractic Medicine. It’s important the doctor performing the adjustment understands the anatomy of your pet and can use specialized techniques specific to their species. At Signal Hill Animal Clinic, chiropractic adjustments are performed by our locum veterinarian Dr. Veronica Devall.
