Chiropractic philosophy is based on the relationship between the nervous system and the spinal column.
This does not mean that chiropractic care only deals with back problems. As a matter of fact, chiropractic care affects all organ systems because the spinal cord carries all the nerves that go to every organ in the body. These nerves exit the spinal column through small joint spaces between adjacent vertebrae. Small misalignments between the vertebral bones cause changes in the joint spaces and impinge on the nerves exiting from the spinal column to the muscles and all the organs. This interference in the nerve supply can have various negative effects on the body and its performance. By adjusting these vertebral subluxations (misalignments), the proper function of the nervous system and the entire body is restored.
These conditions respond well to chiropractic care:
Acute neck pain
Chronic back and neck pain
Degenerative joint diseases
Intervertebral disk disease (IVDD)
- Musculoskeletal weakness
- Pain that resists conventional diagnosis and treatment
- Urinary and Fecal incontinence
What causes misalignments (vertebral subluxations)?
Life! Life can be tough on the body!
Jumping, twisting, falling, pulling, tugging, racing, birthing,
even confinement can lead to misalignments of the vertebrae and
sent the integrated nervous system into a tail-spin.
Can chiropractic care help your four legged friend?
Often chiropractic care can decrease pain and add quality to your pet's well being and increase his/her performance. I have been able to help horses that are "off", dogs with hip dysplasia, horses unable to bend around barrels, dogs with neck pain, horses with biting issues, dogs with partial paralysis, llamas with head tilts, etc. All animals can benefit from adjustments but those involved in competitive sports seem to need it more often.
Chiropractic care takes time since it allows the body to help in the healing process, but often you will see an improvement in your pet's attitude almost immediately.
Hesitant to try Homeopathic or Chiropractic treatment for your pet?
Five Star recommendation!
Dr. Heike Jung’s Chiropractic expertise has kept Percy (a disabled Boston Terrier) comfortable with increased range of motion.
After an acute injury Percy could not stand at all!
Dr. Jung prescribed a homeopathic remedy. Within 3 days, the Homeopathic remedy had Percy back to his baseline- a happy dog moving in his normal way!
Thank you, Dr. Jung!

The "magic" of homeopathy comes from looking at the WHOLE patient.
Homeopaths do not treat based on a diagnosis (because a "diagnosis" is just a name given to a few symptoms). Instead, we look at ALL of the symptoms, the environmental influences, the social interactions of your pet, and match that patient picture with a homeopathic remedy.
While veterinarians are trained to prescribe pharmaceutical drugs based on a diagnosis, homeopaths are trained to look at the whole picture.
For example, you might take your pet to the vet because of itchiness and a rash on the belly. Your traditionally trained vet, will probably prescribe anti-histamines, an immune-suppressant like Apoqule®
It's the in-depth knowledge of your pet which will allow your homeopath to find the correct remedy to cure the dis-ease.
A homeopath will send you a questionnaire and then spend 30-45 minutes discussing your pet's life story. You'll not only discuss your pet's skin but also behavioral issues, social preferences, the amount of water consumed, how s/he sleeps, what s/he likes and doesn't like, etc. It's the in depth knowledge of your pet that will allow your homeopath to find the correct remedy that will cure (or at leas palliate) the itchiness. The magic of homeopathy is understanding the patient and doing no harm. Even if the homeopathic remedy doesn't cure the itchiness, they do not cause any negative side effects. Instead you and your homeopath will dig a little deeper to find the correct remedy.
Homeopathy changes how you look at a disease process.
Soon you will understand that the physical symptoms you are seeing are the tip of the iceberg and the underlying emotional or mental peculiars are causing the actual symptoms.
"The sole and raised mission of the doctor is to reestablish the health of the sick, which is called cure."
"Earning certification from the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association’s professional certification program represents a significant professional achievement. The professional certification program of the AVCA promotes the highest standards of animal chiropractic care for the protection and benefits of the patient as well as the public.
Certification is awarded to the licensed doctors of chiropractic and/or veterinary medicine who have successfully passed an AVCA approved post-graduate program in animal chiropractic and have met the AVCA certification requirements which include passing both a comprehensive written and clinical competency (practical) examination.
Certification is distinct from licensure in that it is voluntary and requires recertification to maintain the credential."
