Chiropractic therapy works fundamentally by stimulating the nervous system. When there are restrictions in the spine, the nerves cannot function optimally and disease becomes likely. Spinal manipulation releases these restrictions, stimulates the nervous system and allows muscles, internal organs and the immune system to function optimally, which encourages the body to heal itself.
Chiropractic therapy can help arthritic and aging conditions, muscle weakness and spasms, prevent athletic injuries, neck and back pain, chronic skin and stomach problems, neurologic disease, chronic ear infections, gait, saddle and bit problems and balance.
Dr. Julia Gawley graduated from the Healing Oasis Wellness Center with a post graduate degree in spinal manipulative therapy in 2012. She has been offering chiropractic services in our clinic since 2016. During a session with Julia, she begins with a physical exam, neurologic exam and gait analysis. Next, motion palpation along the spine, pelvis and limbs reveal what joints need to be adjusted. After adjustments are completed, most pets are very relaxed, less painful and moving more freely.
