Spinal Adjustment and Pain Management

Dr. Jacobs has used her skills in veterinary spinal adjustments to help hundreds of animals, both young and old, to resume their normal lives and prevent additional arthritis and pain issues as they age.
Veterinary Spinal Adjustments
Veterinary Spinal Adjustments
Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy (VSMT) is similar to the chiropractic treatment done on humans. Using a small amount of action in the correct direction of joint motion, the joints between vertebrae and bones are gently restored to normal motion to allow the joints to move with more ease.
Fascia Relaxation Therapy
Fascia Relaxation Therapy
Dogs and cats LOVE to have Fascia Relaxation Therapy, many even start to fall asleep during the session. This therapy allows better nerve conduction of neurological impulses which allows the muscle to move better. It takes about 10 minutes to do with a special tool that Dr. Jacobs uses.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy for animals
Cold laser therapy is an effective means for animals with back, neck, and leg pain. Laser therapy uses light to accelerate the body’s natural healing process without drugs, surgery or painful treatments. Dr. Jacobs will evaluate your animal’s condition and see if cold laser therapy is right for your pet.

“Chiropractic adjustments from Dr. Jacobs on Bo has been a game-changer in his health! Bo has had arthritis for many years and the chiropractic adjustments Dr. Jacobs does have been wonderful for him. You can see the relief instantly! You can tell he feels better, can see a physical difference in how he walks and how he can get up and down. Dr. Jacobs is wonderful and explains what she’s doing at each adjustment and is incredibly gentle. If you’re on the fence about dog chiropractic, don’t be. Chiropractic care is a wonderful addition to the health and maintenance of your dog.”

“Dr. Jacobs has been adjusting my six-year-old Border Collie, Zipper, for over a year. Zipper is a dog that doesn’t necessarily like to be touched unless it is on her terms. Dr. Jacobs has always dealt with my very active little girl with compassion and patience thereby winning over Zipper’s heart! When Zip sees Dr. Jacobs, she gets very excited and has to give her kisses. Zipper loves Dr. Jacobs and that means everything to me.

After each adjustment, I have to keep Zipper quiet for the next 24 hours but it is well worth it! I can definitely tell when Zipper needs an adjustment and can see a difference in how much better Zipper moves and sits after her adjustments. Zipper had double arthroscopic knee surgeries in 2018 and has had chiro adjustments ever since. I firmly believe these regularly scheduled chiropractic adjustments have helped Zipper feel so much better! We highly recommend Dr. Jacobs!”
