The chiropractor will try to study the body muscles and the tissues; a detailed study of the gait and the posture will be carried out in order to understand the problem. The movement of the animal spine will be carried out, whether any muscle spasm is present or not will be checked out or if there is any hot spots or cold spots present will be thoroughly examined by the chiropractor. Any bizarre movement that to for a long period will indicate that, the problem is serious.
After properly diagnosing the problem the chiropractor will, resort to treatment. The treatment is aimed to bring the animal’s body to the normal level. The treatment provides immense relaxation to the animal and most of the time it ahs been observed that the animal’s enjoy the treatment. Once the animal’s body reaches to its normal level and the balance in the body is established the animal can get back to its normal routine.
Aftercare is very much important here; in fact if the after care is not proper then the animal may not recover completely and after sometime the pain may become intense. After the treatment the animal may take some time to recover completely; it all depends on the intensity of the problem. A chiropractor should treat the animal under the guidance of a veterinary surgeon and after the treatment he should send a detailed report to the vet.
An animal chiropractor should have proper knowledge and education about the chiropractic science. Apart from the theoretical knowledge he should also have practical knowledge.
