Introduction to Equine Chiropractic
Watch Dr. Mark give an introduction to chiropractic care for your horse. He thoroughly defines Equine Chiropractic, explaining why it is important for your horse and how it will help your horse be comfortable.
Since the nerves that exit the spinal cord contain the nerve supply to the internal organs, freeing up the joints with chiropractic adjustments makes these nerves healthier. When this happens, the body is able to heal itself, fight disease and maintain optimal health. The goal of each treatment is to restore normal mobility to the joint, thereby stimulating proper neurological reflexes and reducing pain and muscle spasm.
Since chiropractors are working with the musculoskeletal system, it can be extremely dangerous to use someone with minimal training. The practitioner should be a veterinarian or human chiropractor who has studied equine chiropractic.
