Alternative Pet Pain Therapies


Animal Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is an alternative to drug therapy for suffering pets, and a form of preventative health care for well pets too. Treatment works by restoring the joints and spine to normal alignment and function. This alignment helps re-establish the body’s signals through the nervous system, eliminates stress to joints, and corrects displacement of the vertebra for more flexibility and proper movement.


The word “chiropractic” derives from the Greek language and means “to practice with the hands.” Chiropractors use their hands to apply an adjustment, which is a specific and gentle correction, to the affected joint. Most animals enjoy being adjusted and are relaxed during the treatment. After being adjusted, many owners report that their pet takes a nice long nap and then is more energetic and active!


Pets that Benefit from Chiropractic
All animals can benefit from chiropractic care. Common reasons that pets are seen for chiropractic treatments include:
• Sore pets — Those with symptoms of pain, such as limping, difficulty in climbing or jumping, favoring a leg or side of the body, moaning when attempting to move, and recoiling from touch
• Seniors — Older pets with stiff joints or age-related diseases such as arthritis
• Athletes — Working or competitive animals striving to maintain optimum condition
• Obese pets — Combined with an exercise and nutritional plan, these chiropractic patients are more comfortable while being restored to overall health and mobility
• Post-surgical pets — Combined with physical therapy and rehabilitation procedures, chiropractic is an effective way to promote a quick and full recovery


In addition, certain skin conditions, urinary problems, intestinal issues, and behavioral concerns related to pain may be improved or eliminated through chiropractic care.

The PROADJUSTER is the most advanced Chiropractic analysis and treatment instrument in existence today. This technological marvel can help you return to a healthier lifestyle where you may no longer have to live with a persistent painful condition. Let us HELP YOU!




FIRST our doctors will engage in a one-on-one conversation with you to determine your medical history, and the causes of your problem so that the adjustment and treatment procedures can then be customized to fit the patient’s needs.




The next step in evaluation and treatment is to use the ProAdjuster’s sophisticated computer analysis to pinpoint the problem areas. The instrument introduces a small mechanical force into the body and measures the response through a system of sensors and software. The waveform that is produced when the technology is employed is similiar to a fingerprint of the material being tested. The information is then charted graphically on a computer, so your doctor can find and keep track the problem areas on each and every visit. Now that’s putting analysis on a whole new level!




Your doctor will then begin treatment with the PROADJUSTER by applying Resonant Force Impulses precisely to the affected areas. You will receive gentle, effective treatment to that area reducing the subluxation. This will relieve the pressure on the nerve, allow the nerve to heal and restore the nerve’s ability to freely transmit signals to the brain. In addition, your doctor may again take readings after the adjustment to compare results.




When a Chiropractor palpates your spine, they are checking for joint fluidity, motion and or rigidity. Improper motion effecting the nerve function is called a subluxation. In a similar fashion to palpation, the PROADJUSTER can determine whether the vertebra motion is too rigid or too fluid. However, instead of using the doctor’s judgment as to what areas are hyper-mobile or hypo-mobile, the PROADJUSTER measures exact levels of motion. Therefore, it can isolate a problem faster and more accurately than manual procedures. And most importantly, it will help relieve the pain!

What exactly are the benefits of receiving massage therapy?   Useful for all of the conditions listed below and more, massage can: •Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion. •Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system. •Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin. •Increase joint flexibility. •Lessen depression and anxiety. •Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation. •Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles. •Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller. •Relieve migraine pain.   There is no denying  massage therapy can be a powerful benifit in your healthcare regimen.  Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related and nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This leads to: •Decreased anxiety. •Enhanced sleep quality. •Greater energy. •Improved concentration. •Reduced fatigue.   In addition, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance massage provides can often be just as valuable as the physical benefits. In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes flow throughout the body, with profound effects. Research shows that with massage: •Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain. •Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function •Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety. •High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones. •Preterm infants have improved weight gain.   Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Getting a massage can do you a world of good.  Going for massage at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. And remember: just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.   Are you interested in experiencing the many benefits of massage?  Come into SpineWise Bowmanville to enjoy a massage with one of our Registered Massage Therapists.  Call us at 905-623-8388
