Many people look to chiropractic care to aid in resolving physical discomfort or other conditions. Chiropractors are knowledgeable about the skeletal structure and the human body. But did you know that chiropractic care isn’t just for humans? Animals, especially those with high-impact physical jobs, can benefit from the care of a chiropractor. Here is a look inside the world of equine chiropractic care.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is an alternative medicine, but don’t let that scare you. It’s been around for a long time and is successful for humans and animals. It focuses on treating and preventing disorders of the musculoskeletal system and how our bodies move naturally. Most often, this is centered around the spine. A trained chiropractor will use their hands or specialized instruments to adjust and align the bones along the spine and connected areas.

Equine chiropractors are trained to perform this care on horses to align the musculoskeletal system and keep the horses in balance.

What Are the Benefits for Racehorses

Racehorses are trained for a specific job that puts their spine under significant stress. Getting regular chiropractic care can prevent bigger muscular problems from happening. Benefits for thoroughbreds include:

  • Maintaining the musculoskeletal system to prevent injuries
  • Reduce tension
  • Improve performance
  • Treating minor injuries naturally

As with human athletes, it’s worth it to use every tool in the toolbelt to ensure top performance and the comfort and health of the horse.

Are There Any Risks?

Even the most reputable medical resources are confident that the risks are low with chiropractic care. However, nothing is without any risk. Always make sure that you work with a reputable chiropractor in your area. If you notice new problems with your horse after treatment, seek veterinary care immediately. Chiropractors also insist that the horses are up to date in all farrier and dental care as these can cause additional long-term problems. Of course, at horseOlogy, that is never in question.

How to Identify a Reputable Equine Chiropractor

The first step to finding a reputable equine chiropractor is talking to your veterinarian. Your vet will provide a thorough medical recommendation and can likely point you in the direction of a provider they work with. You can also check with your community to get their referrals.
