Chiropractic care is especially helpful in cases where an injury has occurred that has caused a physical upset to the joints, muscles or blocked nerves. Chiropractic is also used to help pets who have had falls or other blunt traumas, arthritis, spinal disease, and when general movement becomes stiff or painful.

Animal chiropractic care looks at the issues of imbalances, in the following three areas:

  • Skeletal System and Joints:
    Bones and joints form a flexible configuration designed to provide pain-free movement when they are in normal health and alignment.

  • Muscular System:
    Healthy muscles always allow the joints to move freely and should be free of spasm, pain, weakness and degenerative changes.

  • Nervous System:
    Nerves are the "hard-wiring" of your pet's body. They dictate the functions of the body, as well as, control communication between the brain and all other areas of the body. When nerves are pinched, flow is reduced which leads to lower performance levels and sometimes pain.

Just like humans, uncorrected subluxations can cause distress and disharmony to the body. However, with animal chiropractic care, in conjunction with your animal's veterinarian care, you'll discover a natural, drug-free approach for your horse, pet dog and cat; farm animals such as cows and sheep; and exotic animals too, including birds, snakes and iguanas.

Erchonia Low-level Laser Therapy (3LT®)

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a form of phototherapy, which involves the application of low power coherent light to injuries and lesions to stimulate healing. It’s used to increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair, promotes bone repair, faster wound healing, stimulates nerve function, inflammation reduction, tendon/ligament repair, increase range of motion and give pain relief. When LLLT is applied with chiropractic care, the best results are achieved to organize the nervous system and promote healing.

Research has shown that the cells of your body actually communicate with each other through coherent light (laser). With the Erchonia laser there are specific pulsations (hertz) that can be programmed with the laser frequency allowing the practitioner to talk “cell talk” with the body. This is extremely important when working with a variety of injury and disease conditions to promote healing. The common response from doctors and patients, when this safe and effective modality is applied, is WOW!

The Erchonia Laser has been found to offer superior healing and pain relieving effects when compared to other electrotherapeutic modalities. The Erchonia patented design has been documented to have a greater cellular effect, which results in faster recovery and longer lasting stability for the patient.

Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T)

Animal B.E.S.T. is energy work that is widely used by practitioners using mind/body healing and who recognize that the body is greater than the sum of its parts.

When the animal has energy fields that are out of balance, symptoms develop and health can deteriorate. B.E.S.T. can update all the energy fields on the animal and owner so that they can heal.

Pain, the Body’s Alarm System, Has a Purpose
As a B.E.S.T. practitioner, Dr Tranberg can help your animal remove interference to health, which leads to realizing optimum health. The fastest way for your animal’s body to heal is to balance the energy fields within their body. This is what B.E.S.T. will do. Often, with the very first treatment your animal will experience immediate pain relief. In fact, it’s been proven scientifically that when they stay balanced, their body will function the most efficiently – without pain. B.E.S.T. is one of the most effective ways to stay balanced.

B.E.S.T. Updates Physical and Emotional Memory
For animals, being under mental or environmental stress can actually change the way their body functions – that’s important for optimum health. Using B.E.S.T., Dr Tranberg is highly skilled in helping you choose nutritional formulations that will aid in healing your animal’s body, by recommending products that have been tested and proven effective for the past 25 years.

Horses and Riders

Dr. Tranberg is currently working with both horses and riders (using B.E.S.T.) in order to enhance their performance capabilities. With chiropractic care, your horse is better able to lower his hocks, and movement overall is optimized. As a result, balance, coordination, suppleness and elasticity are achieved.

Benefits for the Horse:

  • Free to go forward
  • More elastic and supple
  • Comes through with easier collection
  • Improved response to rider commands
  • Stiffer side is free
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Increased winning potential

Just as chiropractic care for your horse deals with performance and flexibility, the same holds true for you – the rider. Dr. Tranberg's personalized care program will increase the mobility and flexibility of your spine for an easier, and more relaxed sitting position on your horse. The result brings you better balance, which can dramatically improve the horse/rider coordination.

Benefits for the Rider:

  • Improved balance for better horse/rider coordination
  • Sit relaxed and easier on the horse
  • Improved response capabilities
  • Ride without pain
  • Improved suppleness
  • Increased mobility and flexibility of back
  • Enhanced winning potential

Through Horse and Rider chiropractic care, signals from brain to muscles are opened allowing you, the rider to execute commands more precisely and your horse to respond accurately.

Small Animals

Dogs and cats, regardless of their age, can also benefit from periodic chiropractic checkups. Joints in the spine and limbs of animals typically become less flexible with age, leading to stiffness and discomfort. Regular chiropractic care can help these animals to become more active and comfortable. Puppies also benefit from periodic chiropractic care to correct the fixations and subluxations caused by rowdy play with other animals, the inevitable slips and falls which occur as they develop coordination, and improper leash behavior.

Nutritional Consultation

How important is nutrition to optimizing health and balancing your animal’s overall energy level?
Using the information you provide us from your vet, we will explore the unique benefits of adding supplements to your pet’s diet and recommend a specific supplemental and dietary plan. We will review all the issues affecting your pet’s health, such as age, weight, breed, activity level, life expectancy, current ailments and overall health status. The products we offer use only the highest quality ingredients and are available only through qualified professionals such as Dr. Tranberg.
