In the UK we find that McTimoney practitioner is especially adept at sorting out horse's back problems. Our local McT , a young lady named Emma, comes and does a good job on any horses which are in trouble.
McTimoney here is regarded as being a bonafide branch of chiropractitioning.
So, you pay your money, watch the therapist work and then see a couple of days later if the horse is OK or Not.
But I find that if I go to my local vet and say "Has my horse got a back problem?" - he goes to his car and brings back sachets of Bute.
But my horse has to put up with my 220 lbs of body weight
Bouncing up and down on a tiny English cut saddle. So maybe it is my conscience money which I pay to Emma.
In summary - it is all down to the skill of the therapist and whether you trust her or not. But for sure in my case Emma MctP. Knows more about the subject than I do.
