I have a chiropractor come out the other day and do realign my barrel horse's back. I'm honestly not sure of what the ec did, but whatever she did made a huge difference.

I made sure I found the best one (the one that my vet used) and I watched her like a hawk.

If that is the problem, I would ask your friend to tell you about the problem areas she finds. You never know where a horse may have knots. You may already know this, but horses are bilateral organisims, which means if they are/have been hurting on the left, it may show in the right side of his body (because of the compensation put on the right side), and vice versa. The ESMT will be able to identify these areas for you.

I wish you and your pony the best of luck!

"I don't think massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture will replace practical medicine" is what flytobecat said. So I thought if you didn't "believe" in massage therarpy then how would you fix a sore back? make them pop pills?

By the way.. I REALLY wish I could get a massage right now :( my horse bumped into my head and now my neck is soo sore! I can barely turn it to the right!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

You can really see this once they are done with the Biofind. Dots on one side in the front and dots on the other side in the back. Te was really bad last time.

What is biofind?
Is it where they do the rows of needle injections?

No it is part of the Bioscan system. It locates any and all areas of the horse or person or dog that is out so you can pinpoint where you need to use the bioscan on. It basically locates any disruption in the muscle of the horses.

OmniLight, Inc. dba BioScan will give you more info.
