Paws, Hooves, & Healing Hands: The Journey of an Animal Chiropractic Session

Drs. Philip and Angela Rodger
Owners of Synchrony Chiropractic

Animal chiropractic is a journey—a unique voyage where healing hands gently guide your pet’s body towards optimal health and well-being. But you may wonder, how long does this journey last? How much time should you set aside for an animal chiropractic session? Today, we’ll unravel the clock and dive into what you can expect when you embark on the path of animal chiropractic.

A standard animal chiropractic session typically spans between 20 to 60 minutes. However, the duration can be influenced by a myriad of factors. The type of animal, the specific condition being treated, the animal’s individual response to treatment, and whether it’s an initial or follow-up session—all play a role in the timing.

In the world of equine chiropractic, for example, an initial session might take a bit longer as it includes a comprehensive evaluation of the horse’s health history, gait, posture, and spine. This thorough assessment ensures that the chiropractic treatment plan is as bespoke and effective as the magnificent creatures it serves.

Canine chiropractic sessions might be shorter in comparison, but they’re no less comprehensive or personalized. Whether it’s a nimble Jack Russell or a gentle Great Dane, the session adjusts according to the specific needs and comforts of each unique canine character.
