Equine Chiropractic can manage a number of potential health and performance issues with your horse. The care is not intended to be a substitute for traditional medical horse care. It is intended to help keep your horse at the peak of its performance.
At any performance level there is a potential for your horse to acquire an abnormal gait or faulty movement pattern. This could prevent your horse from reaching its full potential. Chiropractic has been found to be effective in helping with these possible movement issues, as well as relieving neck and back discomfort.
Chiropractors will detect back, pelvic and leg dysfunctions. By using gentle manipulations, musculoskeletal tensions and restrictions can be released.
