Equine chiropractic is a component of equine health care that focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the vertebral column) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects preservation of health. For example, reduced mobility between two vertebrae can affect the nerves that leave the spinal cord between these vertebrae. Alteration to the nerves can lead to problems such as pain, abnormal posture, or poorly coordinated movement.
How is Equine Chiropractic Used:
- To treat chronic musculoskeletal problems
- To treat acute problems such as tension or stiffness
- To treat prophylactic treatment to maintain fitness/performance
- To maintain soundness in older animals
- To enhance performance ability of sport animal
Equine Sports Massage Therapy is the therapeutic application of hands-on massage techniques for the purpose of increasing circulation, relaxing muscle spasms, relieving tension, enhancing muscle tone, and increasing range of motion in high performance horses.
