Equine Chiropractic is the manual manoeuvring of the skeletal structure and spinal vertebrae which when functioning properly ensures control of the nervous system as well as complete muscle coordination within the body. Misalignment within the spinal vertebrae leads to nerve and muscle irritation that affects movement and mobility of the horse. Chiropractic alignment coupled with massage therapy through acupressure yields maximum benefit to the animal.
Chiropractic helps the horse maintain balance, proper structure and enables athleticism.
Acupressure Massage Therapy
Massage Therapy is done by means of acupressure, working on multiple stress points on each side of the body. Stress points are where tendons and ligaments come together within each muscle group. Due to nerve irritation, from misalignment, stress or fatigue, these muscles groups begin to shut down and do not receive the blood supply and oxygen needed to take toxins from the area. Manually the stress points are relieved and massaged, bringing blood to the area to help heal and repair the muscle.
Improper saddle fit is one of the most often seen causes of pain and misalignment. Pressure points and uneven balance directly affects the horses body and performance. Eliminating this possible cause of pain allows for a more precise diagnosis of the horse.
