Why use spinal manipulation to treat pets?

Spinal issues and musculoskeletal disorders can cause your pet's health to quickly deteriorate. These can severely impact other joints and muscles, along with movement, posture and flexibility.

You might consider asking your veterinarian if your cat or dog could benefit from spinal manipulation sessions if your pet is displaying these signs or symptoms:

  • Pained facial expression
  • Change in gait, limping or short stride
  • Reluctance to be touched or picked up
  • Change in posture, weight shifting or inability to bear weight

What happens during a spinal manipulation appointment?

Spinal manipulation treatment is most commonly administered as an additional treatment option for animals experiencing spinal problems or biomechanical-related musculoskeletal disorders.

At Millbrook Valley Animal Hospital, Dr. Hannah Pope performs spinal manipulation therapy. She uses her hands or specialized tools to gently manipulate the joints of the spine, helping to relieve tension, reduce inflammation and promote healing.

In turn, this can help to relieve pain throughout the body and allow it to heal itself naturally.
