Canine Chiropractic Adjustment
Megan Mayer 1/10/2016
Doctor Christina Cole is an animal doctor, but what she does is not the job of a usual veterinarian. In a unique way she helps Corvin, a well-behaved dog, with limping and soreness issues.
Christina is an animal chiropractor, here giving an exam and adjustment to Corvin. All chiropractic care, as the description says, is given with the consent of a veterinarian, a vet referral, or in a vet's office. She first checks Corvin's back hips, noting a pain reflex as she does her work. While discussing his problems and pain with his owner, Christina holds up Corvin's back and applies pressure. She explains that with animals, you almost never hear the popping and clicking like you do with people, because the weight bearing is different and their discs don't fill up with that air.
Christina constantly talks to Corvin, comforting and praising him as she works to make him feel better. Her bedside manner is even better than some human doctors! Animals are certainly lucky to have her taking care of them, it is clear she truly cares about their well-being.
