Chiropractic Care

Animal chiropractics is a therapy that focuses on establishing and maintaining the balance of the spine and neurological systems.  Similar to acupuncture, chiropractic care may be used not only as a treatment for illness and lameness, but is greatly beneficial as a wellness tool too!

It can be used to blend well with your horse’s preventive care program to provide a well-rounded approach to wellness! Chiropractic care benefits many horses, not just those with sore backs!  Horses that that have performance issues such as a preference for one lead, stiffness thru the poll/neck, or reluctance to engage properly benefit from chiropractic care.

In addition to the performance horse, other horses that may benefit from chiropractic care include foals that are unable to nurse comfortably, arthritic or geriatric horses and pleasure horses.  The goal of chiropractic care is to optimize health by allowing the body’s restorative capabilities to find its balance. Chiropractic care involves an examination of the horse, during which abnormalities in the mobility of the spine and extremities are identified and corrected with chiropractic adjustments.
