Lincoln & His Back Pain

Dog Back PainThis little man right here is one of our moms very special clients, Lincoln. He’s a man with an attitude and loves his family dearly. When Lincoln was not feeling his best his fur parents were incredibly concerned. He had started to hunch in his back, limp occasionally, and had little interest in jumping onto the furniture. He seemed lethargic and not himself at all, in fact he had even had accidents in the house a time or two (something that was not normal for him). After visiting the vet he was diagnosed with a disc issue and informed that he may never recover, and would possibly need a wheelcart. Well his fur mom was not going to take such news without a fight. She immediately began reaching out to see what else could be done for her little Lincoln Log, and that’s when she was referred to our mom. Lincoln definitely had signs of a slight disc bulge and even a bit of a nerve impingement, but nothing appeared too serious at his first adjustment. He was in a slight bit of pain and discomfort and his back had started to hunch significantly while his neck was having serious trouble turning to either side. His muscles were flared up and his whole body was guarded. After a couple of treatments, Lincoln was practically a new dog. His energy was up, he could move his head without crying, and his back had straightened itself out. He didn’t fuss when being adjusted and his pain seemed to be completely gone. As an active six year old, Lincoln was finally able to enjoy the things he had come to love, such as jumping up on furniture and going for walks with mom. Lincoln still sees our mom to keep everything in check, after all he does have a tendency to play pretty hard, and we know our mom just loves him and his entire family!
