Dr. Mark A. McCann, D.C., C.A.C.- Certified Animal Chiropractor
Animal spinal manipulation is an alternative form of health care based on the same foundations of human chiropractic, where a healthy spinal column and its corresponding nerves are essential to optimal function of our body. Nerves control a variety of important functions. Nerves control movements by the muscles they supply. Nerves allow feelings of hot, cold, soft, and hard. They also convey messages of pain. This information is then interpreted and processed by our brain.
Dr. Mark McCann delivers a specific "adjustment"to all the joints that are misaligned or "stuck." An adjustment is a very quick, low force, gentle thrust. The joints adjusted are determent by the animal's history, followed by an examination. This includes palpation of the spine, muscles, and extremities, as well as posture and gait analysis.
