Proper Equine Chiropractic

by DePaolo Equine Concepts

In this video, Dr. Mark explains the proper procedure for equine chiropractic. He walks you through a thorough a correct evaluation and treatment. Its imperative to look for an equine chiropractor with this detailed approach. This is the third in a series about Equine Chiropractic, and we strongly encourage you to watch all 4 videos on this topic found on our YouTube Channel.

Dr. DePaolo has developed a very comprehensive approach to his veterinary chiropractic treatments.  The horse will NOT be tranquilized or restrained and all adjustments are performed by hand.  NO mallets, implements, devices or standing platforms are used.

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.
