Welcome to Well Adjusted Animal!
The Well Adjusted Animal provides animal chiropractic, canine rehabilitation therapy and canine conditioning alongside your existing veterinarian or in the comfort of your own home.
Having competed in agility, herding and obedience since 1998, Dr. Kim has a great knowledge of the wear and tear on our canine athletes from these sports. The key to keeping your dog strong and sound is prevention through individualized conditioning programs to help your athlete make those tight turns, quick stops and contacts without injury. Conditioning isn’t just for canine athletes. Conditioning can prevent injuries for active dogs that love to hike, run or bike with their owners.
When a dog has sustained an injury or had surgery its quality of life can be improved through rehabilitation. Orthopedic and neurologic problems, post-operative, weight, and pain management are all addressed during the dog’s rehabilitation session. If a problem is identified early, our pets recover faster. An added bonus is the enjoyment dogs receive from the exercises and stimulation.
The old adage “use it or lose it” certainly applies to your geriatric dogs. There is so much more we could be doing for your dogs to help them get around better. Something as simple as stretches in the morning can help make your dog comfortable enough to go up and down the stairs. Controlling their pain and keeping them strong can help them stay an active part of the family.
Animal Chiropractic is a field of animal health care that focuses on the preservation and health of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. The nervous system controls everything that happens in your animals. The spine is a very complex system that involves bones, ligaments, muscles and nerves. If the movement and biomechanics of the spine become dysfunctional, they can interfere with the the nerves branching off of the spinal. As this occurs, your animal can lose normal mobility; resulting in stiffness, tension, pain and even organ dysfunction. Additionally, when normal movement is affected, and left unattended, it will ultimately impact your animal’s entire wellbeing and quality of life. The goal of an animal chiropractor is to restore function and mobility to the compromised vertebra in an effort to re-establish neurologic transmissions. Animal Chiropractic is not meant to replace traditional veterinary care. It is an integrative method that when used in conjunction with good traditional veterinary care, will provide years of happy and healthy living. It is an effective means of restoring and maintaining their strength and soundness. And by exploring and treating the root causes of your animal’s aches, pains and illnesses, will ensure maximum improvement, top performance and an exceptional quality of life for the animal companions we love.
