Similar to human chiropractic medicine, Veterinary Spinal Medical Manipulation is used to adjust soft tissues and muscles surrounding restricted joints to restore normal range of motion of a joint. By law the term “chiropractic” refers only to human medicine and can only be practiced by a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine. Only licensed veterinarians, on the other hand, may become certified Veterinary Spinal Medical Manipulation practitioners.
