Equine Chiropractic care is an alternative, drugless method of healthcare. Many people visit their Chiropractor weekly for more than just neck and back pain. Studies show that with regular Chiropractic care, patients experience more energy, have improved athletic performance, sleep better, and have improved resistance to disease. As a result of experiencing such great benefits, whole families are opting for regular Chiropractic wellness care.
The benefits of Chiropractic are available for your horse as well. Chiropractic does not replace traditional veterinary medicine but works very well with it. A Chiropractic adjustment is aimed at correcting the subluxation (misalignment in the spine) and restoring the proper function of the nervous system. Chiropractic thus works to eliminate the cause of the problem and not just simply treating symptoms.
What are the benefits of my horse getting adjusted?
- Improved Natural Defense System. Every adjustment provides a boost to your horse’s immune system. Studies show that patients who are adjusted have as many as 4 times the number of circulating defense cells that help fight disease.
- Nervous System Optimization. The nervous system controls every function in your horse’s body. The goal of the Chiropractic adjustment is to detect and remove any impingement to the communication pathway between the brain and rest of the body and to restore optimal function.
- Realization of Full Biomechanical Potential. Movement of your horse’s spine begins at the base of the skull. If this joint is NOT moving properly, it blocks proper motion in other joints of the spine, especially the neck. Without proper motion of the spine, your horse is unable to express its full athletic potential, even if that is just walking around the pasture.
- Positive Brain Changes Experienced. Chiropractic adjustments improve the brain’s ability to handle activities that are occurring in the background or subconscious of the horse’s brain. This includes functions like breathing, digestion and just the ability to interact with gravity in an appropriate manner.
