Equine Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to many of the health and performance problems of the horse. Chiropractic does not replace traditional veterinary medicine and surgery, but provides an alternative method of care that works to enhance traditional methods of treatment.

The bones of the spine and joints are maintained in a specific alignment, allowing the nerves which surround each joint and vertebral articulation to be in constant communication with the central nervous system, brain and organs. When even a subtle change in the alignment occurs, it is called a subluxation.

Subluxations affect the nervous system, local muscles, joints and even distant organs, glands and body functions resulting in dysfunction of the nervous system. To correct the subluxation a chiropractic adjustment is used. A chiropractic adjustment is defined as a short lever, high velocity, controlled thrust, by hand or instrument, that is directed at specific articulations to correct vertebral subluxations.

After targeted specific areas that are not functioning properly, normal nervous system flow can be restored.
