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:

  • Decreased level of performance, laziness
  • Behavioral changes, headaches; the nervous system supplies the body with energy and interference may cause behavior changes
  • Loss of breathing capacity; maybe caused by a rib subluxation
  • Head carriage or fighting bit; may be neck or jaw subluxations
  • Short striding, uneven strides, toe dragging, stumbling, forging, and uneven shoe wear
  • Diagnosed musculoskeletal conditions, such as arthritis
  • Muscle changes, imbalances, spasms, or atrophy
  • Abnormal posture when standing, uneven hips, inability to walk or stand on different ground surfaces, not squaring up when urinating, holding tail to one side
  • Gait problems, such as cross-canter, loss of collection, refusal to pick up a lead
  • Injuries resulting from falls, training, or other activities
  • Stressful situations such as poor conformation, various riding and training equipment, performance level and ability of the horse, and shoeing
  • Chronic disease conditions, multiple repetitive infections, and weak immune system
  • Young and old age, breeding and pregnancy, and birth; we recommend having horses adjusted starting 6 months prior to conception, and right after birth, as birth is one of the most traumatic experiences animals experience
