Thank you to Dr. Pfafman for saving Monte! We went to Dr. P. a few years ago when my small Maltese was having severe back pain and could barely walk. We had tried traditional anti-inflammatories, but they didn’t work. As a last ditch effort, we turned to Dr. P. I am so thankful we did. Through chiropractic care, Monte began to heal and has been doing great ever since. Just like a human, he needs to be re-aligned every once in a while, but he is back to being himself. We would have been lost without Dr. P. and chiropractic. We love Dr Pfafman!
Animal Chiropractic and Manipulation
Chiropractic : from Greek words meaning done by hand. It is based on the principle that the body heals itself when the skeletal system is correctly aligned and the nervous system functioning optimally.
Chiropractic adjustments gently manipulate the spinal vertebrae to correct areas of fixation or disruption. These areas show up as pain, limping, reluctance to move or posture changes such as an arched back, hanging head low or “guarding the neck stiffly.”
Certain dog breeds are born with characteristics that predispose them to neck and back problems. Chondrodystrophic breeds (short, crooked legs with a long back) like Dachshunds, Bassets, Beagles, Shih Tzus Lhasa Apso, Pekenese and English Bull dogs to name a few.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine was developed around 659BC to 621BC by looking at patterns within nature as a whole and studying how those patterns are also reflected within the body.
They used these observations to create a system of medicine that promotes balance both within the body and mind as well as with the environment.
The practice of traditional Chinese veterinary medicine is comprised of four main components: acupuncture, herbal medicine, food therapy and Tui-na (medical manipulation, similar to chiropractic manipulation).

“Prolo” is short for proliferation, because the treatment causes the proliferation (growth, formation) of new connective tissue in areas where it has become weak. Prolotherapy is primarily used to treat joint pain, and has been clinically shown to increase joint ligament strength by 30-40% in humans.
Clinical results using prolotherapy in dogs and cats appear to indicate the same response. Many elite human athletes use prolotherapy to strengthen their weak ligamentous tissues to prevent against future tears and injury.
Conditions that can benefit from this therapy:
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Torn Ligaments
- Tendons and Cartilage Injury
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Partially Degenerated or Herniated Inter-Vertebral Disks

Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) Therapy also known as PRP
Autologous conditioned plasma is a specialized blood product made by concentrating a patient’s own platelets and growth factors in a small volume of plasma (the yellow, fluid portion of blood in which red and white blood cells and platelets are suspended). The concentrated ACP can be used to supplement the patient’s own growth factors to improve signaling and recruitment of cells to an injury site. ACP is one of the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) products being successfully used to assist in the treatment of orthopedic injuries in human and veterinary medicine.
