Equine Chiropractic Care for Castle Rock, CO
Equine Chiropractic Care
Equine chiropractic care is an alternative, drugless method of health care used in conjunction with your regular veterinary care. Just like people, animals may experience back pain, or need to seek out chiropractic care for more energy, improved sports or work performance, for better resistance to disease, and to help insure a drug-less life. Equine chiropractic care deals with the nervous system, removing interference and correcting vertebral and joint subluxations. If interference gets into the nervous system, this may lead to pain, disease, muscle imbalances and weakness, immune suppression, and much more.
Our equine chiropractic care is performed either by hand or with an instrument called an Activator. Just like human chiropractic care, you may hear an audible “popping” sound when the adjustment is performed. Please keep in mind that this does not hurt your horse, and after a couple of visits, the animals typically get excited to see the doctor when they arrive.
If your horse is experiencing the following signs/symptoms, they may need chiropractic care:
