Canine Chiropractic with Dr. Michele Broadhurst
Recently I did a podcast with Dr. Michele Broadhurst, DC, a certified and experienced human and animal chiropractor and canine rehabilitation practitioner. Dr. Broadhurst has dedicated her life to finding better and more efficient ways of helping her patients recover from pain and injury. She joined us to discuss integrative pet health and how she uses her chiropractic expertise to treat many of the problems that plague our pets. In addition, her newly released book, “A Clinician’s Guide to Myofascial Pain in the Canine Patient”, is an essential resource for anyone who is interested in treating pain in their respective practices. Visit her website to learn more about Dr. Broadhurst’s human, equine or canine chiropractic services.
“I think integrative medicine in the veterinary world is becoming so much more important, because you can’t fix everything with a pill. But you can fix it with herbals, you can fix it with chiropractic, you can fix it with acupuncture, you can fix it with physical therapy. And very often it’s a combination of everything together, working innately.” – Dr. Michele Broadhurst
