I was not.
This guy came extremely well recommended from multiple sources. But the thing that pushed me to call him was this horse and I rolled while running full speed in a pole bending pattern. He tripped and I got thrown off, he was stuck on his back...with his neck to the side. The chiropractor was the one that came out to my house within 2-3 days (cant remember)...it was immediately pretty much...
My horse was out in the neck, withers, hips and somewhere else...poll? And he was incredibly sore (as was I) he also did some deep tissue massage. He spent nearly an hour working on him, and Nut (the horse) was so relieved.
The other 2 chiropractors...being vets...did NO massages on my horses. And they spent literally less then 10 minutes on them, and sent me home. It was between $115 and $130 for those visits.
The guy without a degree was $75, spent 6 times the amount of time on them...and is incredibly nice and thorough at his job. He also came out at 7am pretty much last minute because of the emergency of the situation. My horse was running 2 weeks later without any complications.
To be honest, he is my number 1 choice for any future work and i'd recommend him over the other 2 to anyone. (not saying the other 2 are 'bad' but...you know what I mean...) Posted via Mobile Device
