Chiropractic Care can be Beneficial for Puppies

Chiropractic Care can be Beneficial for Puppies

Did you know that chiropractic care is great for puppies?
By helping aid alignment and motion, we are able to nurture their growing bodies so they can be as
healthy as possible into their adult years.

3 ways chiropractic care can be beneficial for puppies:

1. Improved Alignment and Conformation

During a chiropractic exam, puppies are evaluated for overall alignment and conformation. We look for head tilts/rotations, leg length inequalities, and abnormal movement in their shoulders, hips, elbows, and knees. If needed, gentle adjustments are performed to restore proper motion which aids their growing bodies. This allows for improved conformation as their adult skeletal structure solidifies.

2. Reduced Risk of Injuries Later On

By addressing issues early on, we can decrease abnormal wear and tear on joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. This reduces the risk of injuries later on in life.

3. Improved Overall Health and Well Being

When the nervous system isn’t functioning properly, it can affect everything from digestion to immune function. By removing any interference in the spine and improving the nervous system function with chiropractic adjustments, the whole body is able to function at an optimal level. Our goal is to help your little pup be as healthy as possible and start life out on the right paw.
