Chiropractic and Massage
Animal Chiropractors use adjustments to restore and maintain joint function and support the nervous system, helping the animal to maintain a healthy state of being.
Dr. Alyssa Fenton, DVM, cAVCA is one of a small number of animal chiropractors in Virginia certified by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association. The chiropractic modality helps the nervous system work to achieve its maximum potential, allowing your animal to function to the best of their ability. Dr. Fenton will utilize a series of manual adjustments to restore normal motion to the joints of your animal's body. The science of chiropractic care is over 100 years old.
It has been shown that a misalignment of joints, called a subluxation, especially of the vertebrae, adversely alters nerve function in those areas. Altered nerve impulses leaving the spinal column can adversely affect the function of organs and tissues supplied by that nerve. This altered function can lead to pain, disease, fatigue, muscle weakness, poor balance, immune suppression, and other symptoms. Animal chiropractic is the art, science, and philosophy that releases the inherent recuperative powers of the body and allows the body to improve the relationship between the nervous system and the spinal column and its associated structures.
