A chiropractic exam includes a neurological exam, stance and gait analysis and motion and static palpation. A chiropractic adjustment is defined as short lever, high velocity controlled thrust by hand or instrument that is directed at specific articulations to correct vertebral subluxations.  Chiropractic adjustments are very useful for gait abnormalities and spinal problems. Chiropractic referrals are made to a certified veterinary chiropractor.
