How Many Adjustments
Most animals show visible improvement after 1-3 treatments. Acute problems often respond quickly, while longstanding problems may require further sessions. Animals with chronic conditions respond very well to regular supportive treatment every 2-6 months. Working and performance animals can benefit from regular check-ups so that underlying problems can be identified and treated before they begin to impact performance
Most animals feel better right away, however some may be slightly stiff or sore for the next 24-72 hours and they may also be sleepy or off their food for a short time. The animal can usually return to their normal routine within 1-2 days. Rambunctious play, stall or kennel confinement, and intense training sessions should be avoided for a couple of days, especially after the first treatment. In some cases it is necessary to embark on an exercise and rehabilitation program to try to ensure that the animal has the necessary level of fitness to cope with the demands made upon it and to reduce the risk of further injury. Specific guidelines will be given to you after your animal has been thoroughly assessed.
