Airedale and Arthritis

Duke the Airedale and His Arthritis

DukeAversaDuke here is a “senior” Airedale. When first meeting Duke, he was struggling and really having a hard time with his aching body. He was slow, a bit lethargic, and quite shaky in his back end. Arthritis seemed to be the least of his problems. His fur mom was really sad watching him age and was hoping there was something that could be done to help his quality of life. Duke had multiple areas of structural shifting going on, primarily in his pelvis, triggering his shakiness and likely making it difficult for him to move as easily as he once had. After his first adjustment, Duke’s mom reported a different dog had come home with her. He was energetic, excited, and even a little bit playful. The tension in his back had disappeared and the shaking was also gone. Duke had decided he wanted to walk more and even started to run around the backyard again. His eyes seemed lighter and his general body became less tight as his pelvis started to stabilize. This guy continues to get adjusted each month because it helps him keep his puppy-like demeanor, something we are so happy he was able to find again!
