Phoenix, Arizona Equine Adjustments

It’s a common joke within the horse community that horse owners often take better care of their horses than they do themselves. While they do deserve certain luxuries, chiropractic care does not fall under this category.  Why?  

Every horse can reap the benefits of regular chiropractic adjustments.

Correcting misalignments found in the horses skeletal structure can improve range of motion, decrease pain and improve performance.  Therefore, regular chiropractic care should be part of your horse’s regular maintenance plan – the same as regular veterinarian care.  

How Equine Chiropractic Adjustments Work

Step 1.

Our chiropractor will observe the horse, watching for postural abnormalities, signs of discomfort, asymmetry or muscle wasting.

Step 2.

Spinal analysis and palpation can identify specific areas of inflammation, spinal asymmetry, muscle spasm and/or any structural abnormalities.

Step 3.

Chiropractic gait analysis which involves observing spinal and pelvic motion as the horse moves. This helps to differentiate back pain from limb abnormalities.

Step 4.

Motion palpation is the core of the exam. It consists of determining if there is loss of normal motion or resistance to induced motion to any joint in the spine or limbs.  Major adjustment points include the:

    • Mandible and tongue
    • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ)
    • Poll and cervical vertebrae
    • Withers and sternum
    • Front and hind limbs
    • Thoracic and lumbar vertebrae
    • Pelvis/sacrum

Step 5.

After a thourough exam of your horse, our chiropractor will recommend a treatment plan specific for your horse and their overall health and wellness.
