What does it mean when an animal is “out”?

 

The spine is designed to move along certain anatomical planes in a smooth effortless gliding manner.  If a spinal segment (two adjacent vertebras and the disc space between them) is restricted in this movement, it is termed “spinal segment dysfunction”.  This will cause an increase in the spinal fluid pressure in that spinal segment, which in turn causes the nerves that emanate from that section not function properly.

 

What happens when spinal movement is restricted?

 

This will lead to muscles that are weaker, imbalanced, and filled with painful trigger points.  Restricted spinal motion an also lead to organ ( liver, kidney, heart etc.) dysfunction that will be reflected in blood work (elevated enzyme levels).  By restoring spinal motion, pain is relieved, blood supply is increased, and internal organs function more normally.

 

What kinds of conditions are treated in small animals?

 

As animals age, the motion in the spine becomes increasingly restricted.  The back takes more strain due to extremity issues like arthritic knees or hips or shoulders.  Restrictions in the back then cause poor muscle function which makes the patient more painful and progressively more debilitated.  At the same time, internal organs start to become affected.  The kidney function may deteriorate and the animal will drink more water and urinate more frequently, for example.  Chiropractic therapy will therefore not only make the animal feel better, but will also allow it to live longer because the internal organs are working in a better fashion.  Chiropractic therapy allows an animal to move better, feel better and function better- the longer an animal moves, the longer he lives.
