Frequently Asked Questions

Simply put animal chiropractors look for abnormal or restricted movement of the joints of the spine and extremities which have an effect on the nervous system and the entire body. The goal of the animal chiropractor is to restore proper movement of the affected joints so the nervous system and body can function at its maximum healthy potential.
The first visit takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Then any follow up visits take approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
Sometimes after the adjustment the animal can be sore. If performed correctly and with proper training chiropractic is safe and effective in treating your animal.
Not usually, unless there is an area that is already sore and inflamed to begin with, typically most animals enjoy getting adjusted and it is not painful.

  • They are either a Doctor of Chiropractic or a Veterinarian
  • They have successfully completed a course/program.
  • They are certified either by the AVCA (American Veterinary Chiropractic Association) or the IVCA (International Veterinary Chiropractic Association). There is NO Board certification in animal Chiropractic.
Dr. Courtney uses a hands on technique to specifically find areas of inflammation and joint restriction. A high velocity low amplitude thrust (or adjustment) is performed to these joints, therefore restoring normal joint motion and helping relieve pressure on surrounding tissues.

Animal Chiropractic in a Nutshell

Chiropractic therapy has, over the past few decades, gained widespread acceptance within conventional medicine.

Even though horses have a very thick muscle mass over the spine, the vertebral joints are moveable and relatively easy to manipulate.
