At Woodside Animal Clinic we know that your beloved pets are important members of the family. We strive to offer excellent veterinary services to the greater Ferndale and Berkley areas. To meet these needs, our veterinarian offers a holistic approach to veterinary care. We understand that there are many different structures within an organism that must work cohesively in order for the entire entity to function in harmony. Thus, our approach aims to discover underlying causes not simply for the purpose of treating, but to prevent these issues from reoccurring. This is why we offer chiropractic care and other holistic therapies to ensure optimal whole body wellness for your pet.
Many people are surprised to learn that chiropractic care extends beyond joint health. Because the spinal column supports the body’s nervous system communication, your pet’s overall health can benefit from routine chiropractic care. Contrary to popular belief, chiropractic adjustments actually activate certain nerve receptors in order to relax muscles and increase blood circulation. The resulting benefits include pain relief, restored freedom of motion, and myofascial release which breaks up scar tissue.
Chiropractic care can be used in many different circumstances. In the event of an injury, it is important to bring your pet in directly after the accident for an exam. In most cases, we can accelerate your pet’s recovery both safely and effectively. Pets that may be suffering from gait issues or old injuries, arthritis, immune health, cancer, and even behavioral and emotional health concerns can all benefit from chiropractic care facilitated by our veterinarian. You may also want consider a chiropractic care plan as an alternative to surgery. In many instances, serious surgeries can be avoided all together. Chiropractic care can also help avoid the use of strong, synthetic pharmaceutical medications. If it is determined that your pet does require surgery, chiropractic care may be able to assist your pet during their relief, recovery and rehabilitation phases.
How do you know if these techniques are appropriate for your pet’s needs? Upon your pet’s initial exam, our veterinarian will perform a detailed evaluation of your pet’s musculoskeletal health, current symptoms, and history to determine the best method of treatment. Dr. Simon is extensively trained both in traditional adjustments as well as the use of electrical and mechanical devices. Furthermore, he performs the Logan Basic Technique, a gentle yet effective form of adjustment.
Our methods also incorporate nutritional counseling to customize your pet's dietary needs, acupuncture therapy, stem cell and bioresonance therapies, prolotherapy, soft laser therapies, cryotherapy, hemotoxicology and pulsed magnetic therapy. We may combine several treatment modalities per session if we consider them to be essential in your pet's overall wellness. Together these treatments can offer myofascial release, increased mobility, reduction of scar tissues, reduced inflammation, improvement in behavior and improved emotional health.
We look forward to providing comprehensive, holistic wellness for your pet. If you have any questions regarding chiropractic or holistic care for you furry friend, please give us a call to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!
