The basis of chiropractic therapy is that proper function of the musculoskeletal system allows the rest of the body, particularly the nervous system to function properly as well, allowing the body to heal itself, fight disease, and maintain optimal health. Chiropractic should be considered for any horse that suffers from neck or back pain, joint stiffness, poor performance, or an altered gait that is not associated with overt lameness.

Chiropractic therapy operates on the fundamental principle that the proper function of the musculoskeletal system directly influences the overall well-being of the horse. A well-aligned musculoskeletal system not only supports optimal movement and flexibility but also ensures the proper functioning of the nervous system. This, in turn, allows the horse’s body to heal itself, combat diseases, and maintain peak health.

Indications for Equine Chiropractic Care:

  • Neck or Back Pain: Chronic discomfort in the neck or back can significantly impact a horse’s quality of life and performance.
  • Joint Stiffness: Limited range of motion or stiffness in the joints may benefit from chiropractic intervention.
  • Poor Performance: Horses experiencing a decline in performance without a clear lameness issue might benefit from chiropractic assessment.
  • Altered Gait: Changes in gait not attributed to overt lameness could be indicative of musculoskeletal issues addressed through chiropractic care.

Benefits of Equine Chiropractic Care:

  • Optimized Nervous System: Proper alignment supports a healthy nervous system, facilitating improved communication between the brain and the body.
  • Enhanced Movement: Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate restrictions, promoting better movement and flexibility.
  • Pain Relief: Addressing musculoskeletal issues can relieve pain, contributing to the overall comfort and well-being of the horse.
  • Improved Performance : By addressing underlying issues, chiropractic care can contribute to enhanced performance levels.
