What is Animal Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a gentle, holistic approach to health care for your pet which analyzes and treats dysfunction of the spine and joints.  Just like chiropractic care for people, animal chiropractic is centered around the nervous system.


The Nervous System: Consists of the brain, spinal cord, and all nerves that traverse the body. The spinal cord carries nerves that are distributed to every single organ, tissue, and cell of the body.  


A misalignment of joints, commonly referred to as intersegmental dysfunction (ISD), adversely alters nerve function to those areas. When nerve impulses are altered even slightly, normal functioning of organs, tissues, and cells supplied by that nerve are altered. This altered function can lead to a variety of symptoms manifesting, such as pain, disease, fatigue, muscle weakness, balance & proprioception issues, immune suppression, and much more.

Patient Reviews

"I am now 100% appreciative of chiropractic treatment for my pet! Dr. Stephanie is a complete professional and so wonderful in how she treated Casey. She put him at ease and he trusted her. One of the most appreciated aspects of her practice is that she can come to my home and eliminate the stress of bringing an arthritic, older dog to a clinic for treatment. I've already passed out her business cards to my friends, and praised her services."
-Anne H.
"I am very thankful for Dr. Stephanie's work on my horse. She used cold laser theraphy & I think it's helped. I'll definitely ask her to come again. This is not something I often do, but I am very impressed with her care for my horse & I will ask her to do future treatments."
-Joan S.
"Dr. Stephanie has helped our yellow lab Saban out tremendously with his arthritis and what we call a "head bob". We didn't want to go the medication route as it would effect his liver and wanted to try an alternative route. I am so happy we did. He absolutely loves her, trusts her and I have already recommended Dr. Stephanie to all my animal loving friends. "
-Susan H.
"Dr. Stephanie did a presentation at the clinic I work at, I wanted to get my gelding worked on before I moved him from WI but the wait was 3 months. I was really excited about the laser therapy as we do it as well at work on cats and dogs, and seem some amazing results. My gelding has had some swelling hanging on from a injury, she was out a Saturday and the swelling was gone by Wednesday! Can't wait to have her back out!"
-Nicole M.
"We met Dr. Stephanie at a Fall Festival for Dogs at the Morton Arboretum. We called her to come and treat our small rescue dog, a Golden Retriever mix. He was having issues with his right hind leg, and a little limp had progressed. Dr. Stephanie came to our home and spent an hour assessing his needs and adjusting his spinal issues. She used the laser treatment on him as well. She is very calming and Riley adored her. We look forward to his next treatment and her wonderful care!"
-Jenny F.
"My 9 year old Pom Toby was diagnosed with herniated discs and was dragging his rear leg and tumbled on his side and had a difficult time getting himself back up when he tried to walk due to loss of balance. Toby is not an easy little guy to manage but Dr. Stephanie took her time with him during her house visits and now he greets her at the door with gusto after only 3 treatments with her. I will continue to keep a maintenance program with Dr. Stephanie for the next few months. She is great!"
-Arleen B.
"Dr. Boehm did an AWESOME job with our Mr. Jack (Qtr Horse). He loved his all encompassing treatment ... a little acupuncture, a little Chiro, a little massage, a little Laser ... he, despite being almost 27 now, was very spritely in his movement and seemed very 'up' afterwards. Many thanks to Dr. Stephanie ... she was very patient and caring and really seems to LOVE HER WORK. High praises for her and would DEFINITELY recommend her!!!"
-Kathy C.
"Karma and I love Dr. Steph! Been working with Dr. Steph for about 3 months now. Karma has shown amazing improvement. Dr. Steph is allowing Karma to stay off pain meds for his arthritis. So very glad Dr. Steph is in our life!"
-Susan S.
"Wonderful Experience! Dr Steph responded almost immediately when I checked into possibly having my Dane treated for his Wobblers Disease. She got all the information on Angus before the visit and came in knowing what areas to work on. The day after treatment Angus showed improvement with mobility. He seemed to have more energy. I will continue to get more treatments. Angus was relaxed and comfortable with her first visit, which was wonderful to see. Angus and I look forward to more visits and continued healing."
