What Is Animal Chiropractic?
Did you know that the animal body is completely controlled by nerves? Those nerves are a system of highways traveling to all the organs, muscles, blood vessels, soft tissues, etc. They are responsible for every function of the body! The skull and spine are the bones that were designed to protect this critical part of the animal anatomy and sometimes those bones just don’t move like they are supposed to. It’s kind of like a traffic jam on the highway. Animal chiropractors call these traffic jams or spinal malfunctions, "chiropractic subluxations." This lack of proper movement has a profound effect on how the nerves can tell the body how to function. When the nervous system is compromised by poor moving joints it can cause muscles to tighten or weaken, muscle soreness, behavioral issues, pain, numbness, inability to sit properly, inability to jump, lack of flexibility, lameness, disease, or even poor athletic performance. If you have noticed any of these symptoms in your animal, call West Texas Animal Chiropractic to request an examination to determine if chiropractic care is an appropriate option for your pet.
William Braudt (Bill) is a certified animal chiropractor and has been trained to detect and correct subluxations (improperly functioning joints). Removing subluxations enables your pet’s body to communicate freely once again which allows for proper balance, health, and well-being. Proper movement of the spine is crucial for optimal health and healing. Subluxations are removed by high-speed, low-force spinal adjustments to restore the proper motion of the affected joint.
Chiropractic care is complementary to the care received from your veterinarian. It is of utmost importance to maintain a regular exam schedule with your veterinarian. Give your pet the best opportunity to experience a long and happy life.
