Equine Chiropractic

Today I had my first experience with an equine chiro. If you've seen my posts, Jax has been a little off in his hind end and I had an entirely unhelpful (and very upsetting) experience with a local vet. Well, before seeking a second opinion, I decided to turn to a chiropractor.

I cannot say enough about how positive my experience was!! I learned so much today, and Jax is clearly more relaxed and free-moving. The chiro and her assistant were incredibly personable (to me and my horse) and helped me to see small nuances in my horse's movement. Even better was the reward in seeing those small nuances corrected when he was walked out after the adjustment. The chiro spent almost THREE hours with us and I think we were both happy! Jax has a tendency to stand a little wonky, but at the end he consistently squared up on his own and relaxed his neck long and low. I'm happy knowing that he is more comfortable, and I feel more informed and aware of what my horse needs.

Anyway, I just wanted to rave to someone about how wonderful today was after all of this stressing I've been doing! I'm a little sad that we can't show or go to the trail obstacle lesson we were planning this weekend since Jax needs a few days off followed by light work, but I'm happy to do what it takes to help him recover from a life of scrunching up tight and hollow for shows.

If anyone lives in Southern AZ and is curious, the chiro's name is Dr. Lynnie Stone (HOME PAGE | Dr Lynie Stone).

I have to check my budget to see when I can go for a vet's second opinion, but I feel a lot better now after having Dr. Stone explain his movements (and the possible reasons behind his movements) to me. I do think that I want to go to a vet to see about possible arthritis, and determine whether my boy can benefit from occasional adequan/pentosan injections. Does anyone have experience with these (IM)? Do you administer them on your own or at the recommendation of a vet?

Thanks for reading!
