Chiropractic medicine is a non-invasive approach to help treat many of the performance problems facing athletic horses today. There are a number of stressful and potentially traumatic situations we put our working horses though that can cause spinal and hip subluxation, nerve damage, and stiff muscles. These include training, trailer rides, injury or trauma, competitions, ill-fitting saddles, etc. Some signs that your horse may need a chiropractic adjustment include gait abnormalities, a sudden decline in performance, stiffness, unwillingness to work, and decreased flexibility. Our certified equine chiropractic veterinarian, Dr. Philip Bentz, offers expertise from many years of experiences in the equine performance industry. His equine background, combined with his ability to manipulate vertebrae and use conventional veterinary medicine help him to excel at finding the best treatment for your animal.
