  Title Resolution of orthostatic intention tremors in a 3-week-old male Great Dane following chiropractic: A case report and review of the literature [case report; review]
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2018 Feb;2018():29-37
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To review the resolution of tremors in a canine following chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A three-week-old male Great Dane canine presented to a private veterinary and animal chiropractic clinic with symptoms of orthostatic intention tremors and signs of vertebral subluxation.

Intervention and Outcomes: Vertebral subluxations were managed using an Activator Adjusting Instrument. Analysis of the subluxations were through static and motion palpation, muscle tone and the presence of pain. After chiropractic adjustments and low level laser therapy, the canine immediately fell asleep. Three days after, the canine showed marked improvement and two-weeks later the tremors were resolved.

Conclusions: Research related to animal chiropractic management is limited. More research is necessary to explore the role of chiropractic in canines.

Author Keywords: Animal chiropractic, intention tremors, low level light therapy (LLLT), Activator Adjusting Instrument, B Complex Vitamin, L-phenylalanine, subluxation, adjustment, orthostatic tremor, generalized idiopathic tremor syndrome
