Animal Chiropractic is a field of animal health care that focuses on the health of the neuro-musculoskeletal system. The chiropractor identifies joints within the horse’s spine and extremities with a reduced range of motion. This lack of motion can cause pain, stiffness, inflammation, and pressure on the surrounding nerves and soft tissue. Since the nerves, coupled with the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system), control everything within the horse’s body, this inflammation interferes with the nervous system’s ability to function to its fullest potential. The goal of animal chiropractic is to restore the optional range of motion to your horse’s joints, alleviating inflammation and enhancing the function of the nervous system. Thus, chiropractic care is not only about making a sore back feel better, but enhancing overall health and well-being.
