Like people, all vertebrate animals can benefit from chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Grover’s wife, “Dr. Ali”, works with dogs, cats, horses, reptiles, rabbits, and more!
Dr. Ali graduated Valedictorian of her class from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, where the chiropractic profession was founded. She completed an additional 220-hours of continuing education on animal chiropractic from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas. She is a certified animal chiropractor by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA). Currently, Dr. Ali is one of only a handful of AVCA-certified doctors in the entire state of Utah. Also a certified Reiki master, Dr. Ali enjoys using energy work and kinesiology testing in addition to chiropractic.
What is Animal Chiropractic?
Like human chiropractic, animal chiropractic focuses on the health of the neuro-musculo-system. This system controls the body and, when there is stress or damage to the nervous system, the entire body experiences negative effects. The immune system becomes compromised, pain becomes prevalent, and immobility is often a result. Animal chiropractors work with veterinarians to identify the root cause of the animal’s discomfort or illness and can treat that cause.
Common problems that are helped by chiropractic treatments include:
- Neck and back pain
Limping and lameness
Muscle spasms or weakness; paralysis
Jaw or TMJ problems, difficulty chewing
Injuries from slips, falls, and accidents
Chronic illnesses like allergies
Bowel, bladder, and internal disorders
Arthritis and stiff joints
Changes in behavior, mood
Avoiding being touched or held
- Performance Issues
