♥ CHIROPRACTIC VETERINARY CARE
“Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases”. – Hippocrates
At Avatar, I do chiropractic manipulations of animals’ skull, cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral spine. Spinal manipulation can be traced back to the beginning of recorded time. Hippocrates, the Greek physician who lived from 460 to 375 BC said, “Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases”.
Edgar Cayce, the famous psychic healer, used osteopathic manipulation for many of his remedies. He declared how very important it was . Mr. Cayce healed and cured illnesses that we still struggle with today like Muscular Dystrophy, Diabetes , many types of cancer and Multiple Sclerosis.
Most people have been to a chiropractor at one time in their life. Anyone who has experienced chiropractic care usually does not have to be convinced of its value. It is thought that chiropractic is helpful mainly because when the spine in not healthy there is a disruption in the natural flow of the spinal fluids inside the canal. These fluids bathe the central nervous system and the brain. Also, the spinal cord has nerve roots that come off of the cord at various levels throughout the spine. These nerves feed the major organs of the body. When the nerve roots are pinched, besides causing pain, they do not feed the organs properly and they suffer.
I use manual manipulation or sometimes an activator or percussion hammer for my veterinary patients. Most animals seem to like it and will relax into the treatment very nicely.
