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. A thorough examination should be performed to assess the need for chiropractic care. At that time, it should be determined if other veterinary services would be more beneficial — such as a neurologic exam, dentistry, radiography or lameness evaluation.
