Why should I go to a Chiropractor?

The first question you may be asking is ‘why should I go to a chiropractor?’ rather than a doctor, vet, physio etc. So let’s first address the benefits of chiropractic in general. We can get to whether you come and see me specifically in a minute.

Why Chiropractic care?


Chiropractic is one of the safest forms of treatment available. We help you and/or your animal achieve optimal health through:

  • Restoring natural movement and function
  • Reducing pain, muscle spasm
  • Enabling the animal to perform at their optimum potential


…and all of this is done using a drug free and non invasive approach- giving you quicker results and faster recuperation time.

Chiropractic treatments have proven to help humans and animals:

  • Decrease arthritis and pain in joints
  • Relieve pain from many areas of the body
  • Reduce stiffness and spasms
  • Increase the range of motion
  • Improved energy and immune system


Animal Chiropractic – what will they think of next?


11In this day and age, many people think that in many respects, we’ve just gone too far. Animal chiropractors, animal psychologists…it wasn’t that long ago when animals could just be animals, right?

Well sure, that’s one view – the other is that like in everything, even medicine, we’re progressing and learning…and some people want to incorporate new thinking and techniques…and others don’t.

Studies and clinical trials by mainstream medical researchers support the health benefits of spinal manipulation and animal chiropractic care is becoming increasingly popular. Canine and equine chiropractic thwart impending musculoskeletal ailments, slow the degenerative processes and improve health and well-being.

So, down to why you should use me vs. another chiropractor…well, in the cold light of day it comes down to two things:

  1. My training and experience
  2. The results I get for my patients
  3. The third point is what I like to call ‘Personal attributes’:

29My passion in using my skill to help animals and humans alike gives me a drive and determination for excellence…to get to the root of the problem and help as quickly and ably as I can. Coupled with a fun and caring nature, I seem to ‘click’ with most creatures, instilling in them a sense of trust and hope.

Being the only animal chiropractor certified by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association based in Cape Town gives me an edge but honestly, my patients are my best adverts… I’ve posted a few references here – so you can hear it ‘from the horses’ mouth’.
