Cats have a similar nervous system and anatomical structure to that of humans and can reap the same benefits of Chiropractic. The techniques differ from human to animal, but the basic concepts and science are the same. Dr. Jessica uses her hands to provide an adjustment to a hypermobile vertebral joint or joint of the extremities to remove interference from the nervous system and allow the body to heal and function optimally.
Some indications for chiropractic care in cats:
- Change in posture while standing or sitting
- Inability or unwillingness to jump
- Change in attitude, demeanor, or facial expression
- Change in gait pattern
- Dead or limp tail
- Change in litter box use
- Sensitivity to touch
- Muscle tension or change in tone
- Change in appetite
- Incontinence of the bowel or bladder
- Biting/Chewing at areas of their body
- General wellness for continued motion and health!
