Animal Chiropractic

Why would an animal get adjusted? Basically the same reason as a person – to help relieve pain, recover from an injury, improve performance, improve function, prevent injury & degeneration, and improve overall health & quality of life. 

Chiropractic care focuses on the biomechanical dysfunction of the spine (vertebral subluxation) and its effects on the entire nervous system. Animal chiropractors diagnose and treat subluxation in the spine or extremities that may occur from either trauma or repetitive stresses and micro trauma, the small movements that an animal does on a daily and weekly basis. Symptoms of subluxation may include pain, spasm, stiffness, sensitivity to touch, lameness, gait abnormalities, postural compromise, and even organ dysfunction. And there may be no symptoms.
Pets suffering from conditions such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, ACL injuries, lameness, gastrointestinal disease, chronic health issues, or back problems have benefitted from chiropractic adjustments. These are the symptoms that are the easiest to detect. Yet when the normal movement of the spine is affected and left untreated, it can ultimately impact your animal’s entire well-being and quality of life.
Dr. Mackenzie Hoy is certified in Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy through the accredited school Healing Oasis Wellness Center. Chiropractic care is not intended to replace traditional veterinary care, but is considered alternative therapy, to be used concurrently and in conjunction with veterinarian care. We work with veterinarians who refer their clients to us. Let us know if we can answer your questions about animal chiropractic.

Our main animal adjusting space is Canine Central in Waseca & we make occasional home visits.
