Dr. Symms has devoted the past 15 years of his 40+ year career in veterinary medicine to pet chiropractic services and pet orthopedic services and surgeries.

He performs all orthopedic procedures of long bones, stifle, hips and shoulders and performs Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM) and pet chiropractic adjustments.

What is pet chiropractic services?
Pets have a brain and spinal cord encased by a skull and vertebral column with nerves that exit the spine at every level. These nerves control functions of the body including muscle, organ and immune function. When a bone is misaligned, the information carried by the nerve exiting at that level can get interfered with or disrupted and not communicate properly. Chiropractors call this a "subluxation". If the nerve is carrying information to an organ like the heart, your pet may experience cardiovascular issues. If the nerve is going to a skeletal muscle, your pet may experience muscle weakness.

Using a neurological examination, static and motion palpation, along with a thorough history, a veterinary chiropractioner will be able to identify precisely where a subluxation occurs. Once located, a subluxation is corrected using a high velocity low amplitude thrust into the joint. This can be achieved using hands or can be assisted using an adjusting tool.
