Spinal Touch for Dogs and other Animals
Help for Man's Best Friend with Pelvic, Back or Spinal Pain
Animals get bad backs, necks, shoulders, hips/pelvis and legs too. Spinal Touch can be a very good way to help your dog back to normal, painfree movement.
This is a question I am asked over and over again. Will Spinal Touch work for my dog like it does for me? Animals like us, mammals in other words, have the same bone structure, muscle structure, heart, lungs, hair, circulatory system and can feel pain when it hurts, just as we do.
The proportions vary certainly, but we are surprisingly the same at many levels. Mammals have the same bone structure and muscle make-up across the living world, it is only the way we move and the way we use our bodies that is different. For example, a giraffe has the same number of cervical vertebrae in their necks as we do; seven. But each of those giraffe's vertebra are nearly a foot long. So they must splay their front legs to get their head down low enough to drink, but they can reach the tender leaves at the top of a tall tree, while we need a cherry picker or a ladder.
The mechanism of injury to an animal's body is very similar to that of a human body too. If we slip off a step, we can pull muscles, jar our backs, do damage to our knees and shoulders, as can the mammals we keep as pets.
Spinal Touch can be used on all manner of animals, perhaps the most obvious being, dogs, cats and horses.
Vets and trainers are accepting the effectiveness of alternative therapies for animals and flocking to it in great numbers. Like humans, animals respond to the numerous physiological and psychological benefits of alternative therapy. Spinal Touch is a noninvasive and general therapy, which offers pain relief and helps in treating many muscular and skeletal disorders as well as preventing their return.
Spinal Touch is very effective at relieving tense and painful muscle spasm, keeping them supple and properly 'switched'. It's a great way to increase blood circulation and remove excessive toxins in the body, in the same way that a massage is effective for humans. A regular program of treatment, once need is established, is effective for maintaining muscle health, spinal alignment, pelvic/sacral alignment, general health and performance.
Postural alignment is the first step in maintaining normal healthy conditions for any animal, including many muscular and skeletal activities, such as: balance, coordination, jumping, running, walking, range of motion, stride length and bending.
It has long been thought that the body's ability to maintain good health relies, to a large degree, on the proper functioning of the nervous system. After all, this is what triggers all our organs to function and maintain a healthy circulatory system, to bathe our cells in oxygen and fuel. Vertebral and skeletal misalignments can cause disease by putting pressure on the spinal cord and peripheral nerves, which causes imbalance in the body's other systems.
Spinal Touch gives the body chance to return to proper balance and better health.
Dogs have accidents and hurt themselves. They also have back pain. If your best friend is currently in difficulty with pain in the hips or back, I would invite you to bring them to visit The Haven Healing Centre in Cheddar for assistance. Appointments and a treatment price list are available by clicking here. I look forward to welcoming you to The Haven Healing Centre where we can talk about a treatment plan structured around your dogs needs. Phil.
