Chiropractic manipulation uses a very gentle, almost imperceptible
movement of the practitioner's hands to stimulate the body to correct the skeletal misalignment and to break down spasm.
It is a valuable complement to horse acupuncture.
Misalignment of the spine and other parts of the skeletal system result in back pain and in the creation of abnormal
stresses in different parts of the body, as a form of compensation. This gives rise to the possibility of further, more serious
injury. For instance, we have never seen a case of tendon injury in the fore limb that has not been accompanied by pelvic
misalignmment behind. How can we expect spavin, DJD, OCD, Arthritis and many other chronic, degenerative and often painful
conditions respond to treatment, however good, if there is skeletal misalignment with consequent uneven stresses and strains?
We believe equine chiropractic
treatment to be essential for the well-being of the ridden horse and for those horses used in driving or draught work. For
instance, to see horses in tourist cities, asked to pull tourists around all day long despite a misaligned pelvis that could
be simply corrected, is very distressing.
believe that equine chiropractic manipulation is an essential component of equine acupuncture treatment. How can correct energy
balance and circulation be restored if spinal misalignment is creating pain, spasm and blockage?
