Pet Therapies Offered:
Animal Chiropractic/VSMT - Initial Visit
Restricted movement can result in changes to the biomechanics of the spine and extremities which can lead to pain, loss of mobility, and impaired function of the muscles, joints, nervous system, and surrounding tissues. Moving well is the key to feeling well. Chiropractic adjustments can be used to prevent injury and promote general wellness and mobility, as well as part of rehabilitating an injury that has already occurred. The goal of VSMT /animal chiropractic is to restore normal or improve spinal and joint range-of-motion to promote appropriate Chiropractic for animals is not the same as chiropractic for humans for obvious reasons and it takes different chiropractic training to be able to treat animals. While animal's musculoskeletal system is remarkably similar to humans, performing chiropractic adjustments to animals requires dramatically different techniques.
Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy (VSMT) is a gentle form of manual (or hands-on) therapy that supports musculoskeletal and neurologic health. The goal of VSMT is to restore normal or improved spinal and joint range-of-motion to promote appropriate neural function and subsequent bodily health. VSMT Adjustments are scheduled only after an examination and as part of a plan of care.
Thermal Imaging - Initial Imaging
Digital thermal imaging is a safe technology that is non-invasive and measures thermal radiated energy from a patient. This energy is then depicted digitally where the temperature differences are viewed as color differences using an imaging camera. Warmer areas are associated with an increase in circulation, and cooler areas are associated with a decrease in circulation. This information can help detect areas of disease and dysfunction much earlier on in the process. It can help locate specific areas of pain and inflammation, as well as identify areas of secondary concern that might otherwise go undetected. Digital thermal imaging is also particularly useful for monitoring treatment progress and can be instrumental in improving outcomes by helping more accurately direct and target treatment. Initial Thermal Imaging includes an initial full-body set of images with an interpretation.
Acupuncture - New Patient Initial Exam
Acupuncture has been part of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) for thousands of years. It typically involves the use of very small, sterile, stainless-steel needles placed into specific acupoints on the body. These acupoints correspond to vascular nerve bundles that connect to specific meridians or energy channels that are interconnected in the body. When these acupoints are stimulated they help energy flow. Acupuncture, along with other TCVM practices (such as herbal and food therapy), restore balance and health by helping the body self-regulate. The Service includes a physical and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) exam.
Therapeutic Soft Tissue Work
Therapeutic soft tissue work is a form of therapeutic massage that works to improve muscle and joint function by relieving tension, muscle spasms and restrictions to proper movement. It can be used to prevent injury or used with rehabilitation after an injury has occurred. It can also be used to release trigger points and stimulate acupuncture points, Some of the techniques used are effleurage, petrissage, trigger point therapy, acupressure, friction massage, and passive range of motion techniques.
