Any experiences with equine chiropractor?

I'm going to call an equine chiropractor for my new pony, I believe she may have a "sacrum subluxation" which I think is some sort of dislocation in a vertebrae by her hip?

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with a sacrum subluxation or any experiences with equine chiro's at all. Did they work? Waste of money?

Thanks x

Well I love my old chiropractor in Maryland. Amazing vet and also certified and practiced chiropractor. Since her I've moved and I'm searching for another as amazing as she.

Before chiro, Sky had really bad muscle atrophy and was really locked up in his stifle and shoulder.

After treatment he was so much looser/freer in his gaits and his muscles aren't in spasm as much anymore.

I absolutely love my chiro, he does an excellent job and I can definitely see the difference in my horses.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I love my Chiropractor and can definitely see a difference when they are done. The horses seem to enjoy it as well.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I have use a horse chiropractor for over 20 years, HOWEVER if your horse has the misalignments over & over, it's just a bandaid, there is something else brewing. And I would never use a chiro that wasn't a registered massage therapist also, sure a chiro can put bones back in place but muscles have memory and will push that adjustment right back to where it was without a massage to soften & relax them.

Mine charges $80 a visit per horse. He's wonderful and my horses definitely benefit from his visits.

Mine charges $75 a visit. She does the massage and acupressure as well. It isn't uncommon for her to spend 2 to 3 hours working on my horse.
