"Chiropractic is a science, an art and a philosophy of things natural, a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column to correct the cause of disease."
- Dr. B.J. Palmer, D.C.
Chiropractic is a cost effective option for many common veterinary movement problems. The majority of animals show a good response within 3 to 6 visits.
As an animal chiropractor, Dr Morissette, will examine your animal's gait to detect any dysfunctions. Following this, she will proceed to do what is called motion palpation, a technique in which each joint is taken through the normal range of motion. This will determine where your animal need to have a chiropractic adjustment. After the adjustment, recommendations will be given to help your animal recover faster.
