Veterinary chiropractic treatment focuses on the role of the spinal column in biomechanics and movement and the close relationship between the spinal column and the nervous system. Chiropractic treatments primarily address musculo-skeletal problems in pets such as:
- Back pain
- Muscle spasms
- Intervertebral disc disease
- Degenerative joint disease
Chiropractic treatments are also very beneficial for senior pets and will experience reduced pain and improved quality of life.
In order to practice chiropractic care on animals, a veterinarian or a chiropractor needs special training. Dr. Huntingford has been certified in Animal Chiropractic by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association since 2000.
