Cat Chiropractic

Cat chiropracticChiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping the body of your pet to heal naturally. Chiropractic doesn't use drugs or surgery.

Animal Chiropractic is a field of animal health care that focuses on the preservation and health of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. Why? Nerves control everything that happens in your animals. Anything adversely affecting the nervous system will have detrimental effects that will resonate throughout the entire body.

Benefits of chiropractic adjustments for cats

Most cats can benefit from chiropractic care. Even if you think of your cat as a pampered couch potato, cats are, by nature, very athletic creatures. They jump up and down from considerable heights, sprint and pounce, and twist and stretch like silly putty. It may look effortless, but these movements put stress on their joints. In addition, falling from heights, landing awkwardly, accidentally getting stepped on and other accidents, can cause spinal misalignments.

The following symptoms may indicate that your cat could benefit from a chiropractic adjustment:

  • Tenderness or pain
  • Decreased levels of activity
  • Not doing things it used to do
  • Fatigue or lethargy
  • Lameness or uneven gait
  • Avoiding human touch or interaction
  • Changes in behavior, such as depression or aggression
  • Decreased appetite

Conditions can be slow in developing, so if you are around your cat every day you may not notice them. Regular visits to your veterinarian and animal chiropractor, at least twice a year, are important in detecting problems and preventing serious health issues from developing.
