Veterinary Chiropractic

Veterinary Chiropractic is an effective method of diagnosing and treating structural and functional problems in both large and small animals. It uses gentle specific manipulation (adjustments) during treatment to improve joint motion. This allows the animal to move in a more relaxed and coordinated manner, which may help manage symptoms in an animal appearing stiff and sore. Spinal adjustments can also be effectively used in the treatment of nerve entrapment and neurological irritation.

There are a wide variety of conditions that can benefit from veterinary chiropractic care, but the most common issues seen are:
- Neck and back pain
- Posture and gait changes
- Sporting and working dogs
- Maintenance of function in older dogs

At Ayr Chiropractic Centre we now have a purpose built room for treating animals. It is known as the "Dog House" but in fact its first patient was actually a calf that could not walk following birth trauma. Ed had a rather active session treating the calf and within a couple of days it was off skipping around the fields with its friends again!
