VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital

Chiropractic Care

Our animal hospital offers veterinary chiropractic care. Chiropractics is the practice of manipulating the spine to treat disease. When the bones of the spine are not aligned correctly, the joint, muscle, nerve, connective tissue, blood flow, and function of an area can be affected. Chiropractics is a system of manipulation and adjustments of the bones of the spine to deal with subluxations and the problems associated with them. The word "adjustment" is normally used in describing the specific and controlled thrust on the specific joint that is being manipulated. It restores the normal range of motion to the affected joint and releases the pressure on the surrounding tissues.

Chiropractic therapy is typically thought of as a method of pain relief for conditions such as degenerative joint disease and disk disease. However, all organs and body systems are controlled by nerves and any disruption of proper nerve flow may also affect function. Correction of vertebral subluxations may improve the health of some internal organs.

Chiropractic adjustment may result in immediate total relief of the pet's symptoms. Partial or temporary relief is also possible, which may necessitate multiple trips to the veterinary chiropractor for ongoing care.

If you have questions about chiropractic therapy or to inquire if it is right for your pet, please call our hospital at 310-473-2951.
