Did you know, Wyoming’s only board-certified animal chiropractor is at Medicine Wheel Wellness? (And she works on humans too.)Once a dog owner brought their 15-year-old German Shepherd in to see Josie Wittner. The dog couldn’t walk and had not been able to go to the bathroom for three days. Josie is a chiropractor who has worked on humans for a decade. Recently she has expanded her practice to include animals. “I have five malamutes and I love ani- mals, so I decided to get a national board exam and do a six-month course,” she says.
Because there weren’t any other options, the German Shepherd’s owner thought they’d try Josie. “Some people completely believe in it,” Josie says. “But some people don’t think it works at all ... until they get their animal adjusted.”
Still, the Shepherd was an extreme case.
“As a healer you always question your ability as to what you can do, and I was really questioning myself with this one,” Josie says. “I told the own- er I’d try, but I really didn’t know if there was anything I could do.”
Josie did one treatment and asked the owner to bring the dog back the following day. Josie adjusted the dog a second time and, by the third time the dog was walking. “I was like, ‘What the heck?!’ This kind of stuff really happens!,” Josie says. “It was one of those weird, crazy things. I had talked to friends who had seen something this remarkable, but I hadn’t ever experienced it before. I wish it could be that dramatic with humans too.”
