Chiropractic philosophy is based on the relationship of the spinal cord with the nervous system of the whole body.. It deals mainly in the manipulation of the spine, but it can also involve manipulation of the joints, extremities, and the skull. With this we achieve the strengthening or stretching of muscles, and eliminate possible joint restrictions. Most animals show no signs of pain or discomfort during treatment, since the treatment works through joint receptors that send information to the central nervous system. This makes chiropractic care a very safe and natural form of treatment..
