I need an equine Chiro in Central Indiana

We have two or three horses that desperately need to see an equine chiro and we did have one but something happened and now she's unreliable.

So... if anyone knows of one in central Indiana I would be most appreciative!

I am sorry but I do not know any, I don't even live in Indiana but I go to a chiropractor, I am going to become a chiropractor, my brother is one and I could go on with the list.

Anyway...what I am getting to, is see if you could find a chiropractor that does humans and see if they would be willing to adjust your horses. Animals, including horses, are built almost exactly alike just animals stand on all four limbs, people stand on two. So for a chiropractor to adjust a horse, it wouldn't be that difficult, if they are a good chiropractor.

The good thing about chiropractics is that it is VERY VERY VERY rare for them to ever hurt a human or animal. Also, my brother got me this book for christmas that explains a lot of equine chiropractics and shows how you can do it yourself. Information of Alternative Medicine : Books : The Well Adjusted Horse: Equine Chiropractic Methods You Can Do that's the book! I hope I was at least somewhat helpful. =)

An equine chiro near me (sorry, not near you) is also a human chiro. However, I think that human chiros must be certified in animal equine also, or else it is illegal for them to practice on animals. Just something to think about... I could be wrong though.

I was looking to become an equine chiro - and I believe you had to have a vet license 8\ To do it legally. -shrugs- I don't know... I don't think McDavitt would travel that far south - but if you want his number it's worth a shot. If you made it worth his time (more than 6 horses or so)... but I know he requires 2-3 horses around here before he'll come out. Which is bullocks because he still charges a farm call I believe.

Yes to become an equine chiro you must either first become a vet or a human chiro. Even then in some states it is illegal. I'm not exactly sure why but it is.

There seems to be plenty of equine massage folks, should I just use one of them until I can find a chiro?

I guess you could do that but it will not be the same thing as a chiropractic adjustment. A massage will just get to the muscles and help them relax and stuff like that. When a chiropractor adjusts your horses it realigns all the bones so none of the nerves or anything are being pinched so your horse's muscles, nerves and everything in its body can work as they should. It is kind of hard for me to explain since I don't know everything about it yet.

A message will help them until you can find a chiro - and it might make the chiro's work easier because the muscles won't be tight.
