Animals of advanced age, as well as animal athletes, sometimes need special attention. With the senior animal, arthritis is usually an issue. While arthritis can’t be eliminated, gentle joint manipulation can still be done and usually has excellent results. It can also help prevent further degeneration in the animal’s joints.
Like human athletes, animals also require optimum structure and function to compete at a high level. Even the weekend warrior can benefit from regular chiropractic care. Not only can it give the serious athlete the competitive advantage, but it can help all animal athletes minimize the injury factor. The better the structure and function of the animal, the better the performance and less likelihood of injury.
