Lexi was adjusted tonight and the vet said that all of the adjustments were really minor. He felt that we don't need to come back next week, but should get her adjusted once every two weeks (TOPS' instructions were to do it every week, and then back off as less maintenance was needed) so that's a really good sign.
It was funny because I asked the vet if he sees a lot of patients who want their dogs adjusteds. He basically said that it is definitely a niche market, and that chiropractors don't get a lot of respect. I think that's true for human chiropractors, too!
I realized that I take my dog to a vet chiropractor on a weekly basis, but I myself have never been. I don't know if I would even want to go. Somehow I believe it works for dogs, but am skeptical when it comes to humans. No idea why. Guess I want to believe that it's helping my dogs.
And anyways, I can only afford to get one of us adjusted! I figure I'm making a choice to do agility, but I'm forcing that choice on Lexi. The least thing I can do is to make sure she's in top shape!
