Equine Chiropractic & Kinesiology Taping
Chiropractic focuses primarily on restoring appropriate movement and function to the joints of the spinal column and limbs thus reducing inflammation, restoring appropriate blood flow and neurologic function. Chiropractic focus' on diagnosing and treating vertebral subluxation complexes. A vertebral subluxation complex is reduced motion within a joint, causing an alteration in the normal motion. This reduced motion results in cell change in the joint within hours to days. By applying a force to the region and restoring motion, the body is able to use its innate ability to heal and appropriate biomechanics can be restored.
When Should Animal Chiropractic be Used for Horses?
What Can I Expect at an Equine Chiropractic Adjustment?
After specific history is obtained, equine adjustments typically begin with a general movement analysis, then specific palpation helps determine areas of focus. Surefoot pads may be used to further determine proper proprioception and to put the horse at ease.
The adjustments may include any area of the length of the spine &/or the extremities as determined by Dr. Hollerbach.
We begin and end each chiropractic session by doing some energy work to balance the Bladder Meridian, which leaves the horse completely relaxed and at peace.
