Trumbull and his Knuckling Under

This handsome fellow is Trumbull. He is a senior great dane that has been dealing with an unsteady gait. On occasion his front paws will knuckle under when he’s walking which will cause him to trip on himself and go down. Now when you’re a big great dane that little trip is a big deal. His fur parents are very in tune with their gentle giant, and figured chiropractic might be a good option in addition to his monthly massages.


On his first visit we could see how uncomfortable Trumbull was. He’s a big boy with a not so little-sister, another dane that loves to play. Being in his senior years, Trumbull cannot handle excessive play like he once did. He had multiple areas that were arthritic and also minor pinched nerves throughout his neck, which is why his paw would knuckle under in exaggerated form.


Trumbull gets adjusted at least once, sometimes twice each month, to keep everything moving as well as it can. He still knuckles on occasion but over the past couple of years he has maintained a wonderful quality of life. He moves smoothly and has a pep in his step, something that makes us very happy. We love Trumbull and are ecstatic we’ve been able to help him through these last couple years!
