The good stuff

What are the steps to recovery? 

The first and most important phase of recovery involves pain management.
Chronic pain receptors require 3 weeks of consistent treatment to achieve lasting pain relief.
● We’ll use medications and supplements to start this process.
● We’ll use laser and Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy as non – drug pain relief.

The second phase involves tissue healing and restoration of movement Muscle spasm and stiff tissues surrounding joints create an ongoing source of pain.
● If surgery or bracing is necessary to stabilize an injury – we do it during this time.
● We’ll use modalities such as shockwave, massage, stretching and hydrotherapy to start regaining flexibility, and stem cell therapy, and joint injections to create lasting pain relief. ● We’ll use nutrition and supplements to give injured tissues optimal healing potential.
● We’ll teach you and your dog the stability exercises that are critical to prevent re-injury.

The third phase includes strength building to prevent injury, will next teach you more specific exercises to help you and your dog get back to fun and achieve fitness goals!

This is when you will see the most results in terms of increased capability and functionality.

● This is when your canine buddy can start using the stairs, going for longer walks, doing more play activities! (YES, really, they are at risk of re-injury until at least 8 weeks after healing starts)

● We will teach you all you need to know to keep up these exercises - many patients come for fitness planning and exercise in the clinic, once or twice per month.
● Come more regularly for hydrotherapy if they are in athletic sports!
● See me for chiropractic care and joint care discussions (4x/year). I will be with you each step of the way with monthly progress exams. With this treatment program, many patients go from having significant orthopedic weakness and disability to active lives without unnecessary medications for pain management.

For you, the Best Pet Parents, Ev-ah!

For The Dog Pros

Dog trainers, behaviorists and veterinary industry professionals - we all need to know when they are dealing with a painful problem vs a behavioral problem, or both.  I have some podcasts and will host workshops for you!

Start in the posture gallery, if you want to learn more, advance your skills with some in person training.  I offer shadow opportunities for a reasonable daily fee and will be offering you hands-on classes to recognize abnormal postures in 2023.


Joint supplements are confusing. 

Can you tell me which is most important? 

Yep.  My dog Roy has chicken allergies and he has knee arthritis.  In this article I will tell you what he takes and what he takes when I can't make myself give him EVERY supplement he would benefit from.

Note: I can't tell you it will be perfect for your dog and you will need to see your vet to diagnose the problems your dog has, AND, you should ask them if these are right for your dog!
