Equine chiropractic care is an alternative therapy that focuses on restoring the spinal column's normal movement and function to promote healthy neurologic activity, which in turn supports effective musculoskeletal function and overall health. Dr. J.C. Thieke has been a Certified Veterinary Chiropractor since 2006, utilizing chiropractic as another means of diagnosis and treatment for many musculoskeletal disorders. There are many circumstances where adding chiropractic to your horse's health care routine would be appropriate, the most significant being signs of pain. Some pain indicators include behavior changes, abnormal posture, reduced performance, ear-pinning or biting when being saddled, head tossing under saddle, refusing jumps, difficulty performing lateral work or collecting, difficulty turning or working in one direction, sensitivity to touch or grooming, and chronic weight loss. If you think your horse could benefit from chiropractic care, please call our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Thieke.
