Animal Chiropractic

Chiropractic adjustments can address issues with pain at the poll, neck, back, legs or almost any area where there is a joint.  A chiropractor corrects a subluxation with a chiropractic adjustment.  A chiropractic adjustment is defined as a short lever, high velocity controlled thrust by hand that is directed toward a specific articulation(s) to correct subluxation(s).  Chiropractic adjustments are not a replacement for your veterinarian, but it does provide a significant tool in an integrated therapy or treatment.

The horse interacts with his environment via his feet and teeth.  Therefore, for maximum performance these two areas must be addressed properly.  Due to poor genetics, lameness, poor dentition and the presence of pathology in the teeth, a horse can be out of alignment.  Having your horse adjusted can make a significant difference in restoring the horse to his full athletic potential.
