Pain in the neck, back and fore- and hind limbs is common in animals. Pain, lameness, paralysis, difficulty to get up, going up and down the stairs, and jumping (for example into the car) can be attributed to, amongst other things, misalignment of the vertebrae and joints. With this kind of misalignment, the portion of the nervous system around the misaligned vertebra (or joint) is irritated, leading to pain and loss of function. Some behavioral abnormalities, as in the case of fearful, restless or aggressive dogs, can sometimes be ascribed to a (correctable) misalignment of the vertebrae.

Method of treatment

The method of treatment is to correct the misalignment, thereby allowing the spine to adjust to a normal position and the nervous system to recover itself. One or two treatments are often sufficient. A check-up after 3 months is advisable.
