Equine Chiropractic Adjustments


Chiropractic Adjustments have consistently proven to be a useful way of improving and maintaining the overall ability in athletic horses. When a joint is referred to as “out” it simply means that it is not functioning in its normal range of motion. Chiropractic therapy is applied force to a specific region to cause a positive therapeutic response. The goal is to ensure smooth, coordinated movement of all spinal movement and extremities.

During an adjustment, it is imperative to do an examination prior to an adjustment. By doing this your veterinarian can see which complex is fixated, stuck, or out of adjustment.

The word “Chiropractic” broken down:

“Cheir” in Greek meaning “hand”.

“Praxis” translating to “practice”.

As the word suggests, chiropractic is both a diagnostic and treatment performed entirely by the doctors’ hands.
