Equine chiropractic care is one of the most rapidly growing fields of healthcare for horses. This field of animal healthcare focuses on the preservation and health of the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. Why? The nervous system controls everything that happens in your animals, and anything adversely affecting the nervous system will have detrimental effects that will resonate throughout the entire body. The nervous system coordinates the body’s ability to heal and regulate itself, and it relies predominantly on MOVEMENT of the joints of the spine and extremities. Trauma, overuse or even underuse can cause the joints of the spine to become fixated, resulting in compromise of the surrounding muscles, tendons and nerves. When nerves become irritated, this causes problems such as pain, lameness, abnormal posture, and uncoordinated and inconsistent gait.
Equine chiropractic centers around restoring movement to the spine in an effort to provide normal function and muscle tone. Chiropractic care frees the nervous system to communicate fully with all other systems in the body, allowing for increased vitality and health. Additionally, chiropractic treatment helps break down adhesive tissue and assists the nervous system in coordinating the body’s ability to heal and regulate itself, helping your animal perform at its highest potential.
