“Pet Chiropractic Care can produce a profound response to a treatment for an animal that may be struggling.” ~ Troy Everson, DVM, CVA, CVCT

What is Chiropractic Care for Dogs and Cats?

Veterinary Chiropractic centers on health and maintenance of the entire body through the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. It is a manual therapy that focuses on the biomechanics of the spine and its effect on the entire nervous system. The nervous system controls everything that happens in the body, including the immune system and its ability to heal.

“Chiropractic is a good tool for back and neck conditions, relief of pain, treatment of inflammation and arthritis. I find that using Chiropractic and Acupuncture modalities together result in greater benefit for the animal’s health,” said Troy Everson DVM, CVA, CVCT, Veterinarian at  VCA Tiara Rado Animal Hospital. Dr. Everson is so passionate about Integrative Medicine that he is Certified in Veterinary Chiropractic Medicine (CVCT), and Certified in Veterinary Acupuncture (CVA).

“During our meeting, I ask the owner if there are changes or a decrease in abilities and activities, while I observe the animal’s movement and gait to determine if it needs help. Sometimes a simple Chiropractic adjustment can restore a higher level of activity,” said Dr. Everson.

“Our Integrative Medical modalities, including Chiropractic and Acupuncture, can be a wonderful tool to maintain comfort and/or performance for your pet. These treatments are very gentle and I feel they have been a blessing to my own aging animal family as well as to my patients,” says Dr. Everson.
