Equine Chiropractic will address a number of potential health and performance issues. It is not designed to be a replacement for traditional medical horse care, but is instead intended to keep your horse in peak condition.
Even in the most athletic horse there can be abnormalities in the animal’s gait or simply movement habits that mean the horse does not perform up to its full potential. Chiropractic has been found to be extremely effective in dealing with such issues, as well as alleviating neck and back discomfort.
Chiropractic detects spinal, limbs, and pelvic dysfunctions. By using hand thrust manoeuvres it releases tension and realigns the horses skeleton. Spinal alignments stop neuro connection at the vertebral level and the correction recreates normal flow between the central and peripheral nervous systems.
If your horse undergoes a chiropractic treatment, it will benefit from improved interactions between the spine’s biomechanics and neurological signals. Careful manipulation of the vertebrae helps to restore normal motion and effective nerve functioning. It can also help to slow down reverse degeneration of the spine by decreasing the joint pressure on the cartilages.
