Why would my cat need chiropractic treatment?

Chiropractic techniques allow cats to experience an immediate reduction in pain and an increased range of motion. A chiropractic adjustment is a gentle treatment that corrects mechanical problems. It can align the joints, relieve muscle and nerve dysfunction, and restore healthy mechanical function.
