Is your chiro a vet? I'm not sure if it's only in Texas, but my vet said you have to be a licensed veterinarian to do acupuncture on horses. Maybe that's why you need a "diagnosis"?
Both my vets have worked with Henny beginning with his accident so they already know his complete background and situation. I have seen nothing but positive results from these two sessions. The doc who does the acupuncture is very sympathetic and will remove any needles that are bothering him too much no matter how much he needs them. The only thing is though is that he bled in a couple spots on his neck from the needles. I guess his muscles contracted too much. The vet said it was nothing to be concerned about, but that's the only "negative" thing that's come of this. It's $100 a session with my vet including the electric current and the acu-pen so not too bad.
ETA: I will add though that Henny is a "skin bleeder." He had to stay overnight after his gelding as he bled too much/too long so I don't know if bleeding from the needles is a common occurence.
There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh
