Spinal Care For Dogs

Spinal & musculoskeletal care for dogs-emphasis on gentler styles of care

At Aligning Canine Chiropractic the treatment emphasis is on the comfortable gentler styles of mobilization, manipulation & soft tissue techniques / massage.

It is Dr Watterson’s approach and treatment philosophy, that wherever possible, the treatment should be comfortable and even enjoyable for the dog as well as therapeutic. One could even suggest that these two aspects complement one another as a part of the healing process.

Hence the aim is to make the visit a positive experience for both the dog and their owner.

One of the greatest compliments we can receive is that a dog is improving, performing better and that most of all enjoys coming to the practice!

Many dog owners comment that on arrival their dog remembered the practice and that they “got straight out of the car… wagging their tail, happy and excited to be here.”

Some aims of Canine Chiropractic care:

  • Reduction of joint & muscle pain
  • Improved injury healing, recovery & rehabilitation
  • Injury prevention & minimization
  • Performance enhancement for athletic & show dogs 
  • Optimising well-being
