My dog has shoulderproblems

If your dog has shoulderproblems, then look:

When you work at this point, you stimulate the tendons, muscles, bones and joints in your dog’s shoulder. It is a good idea to work frequently on the point if your dog has the wrong foot position, e.g. turns the paw outwards on one or both front legs. In the long term, it causes weakness and arthritis in the shoulder,  which in turn can cause your dog pain. The same applies if your dog has sunken front paws; The dog sinks back a little in the front legs when standing. It also puts a strain on your dog’s shoulder over time.

When the dog is in pain, it will try to compensate and thus strain the muscles incorrectly. By using the point, you can reduce the pain and thus relieve and help the muscles, because you promote the healing process by increasing the circulation of blood, lymph and energy.
