The chiropractor I use (Kit Heidt with Animal Krackers out of Arizona) made a world of difference for my boy. Because of his off walk with his arthritis, he threw his rib out. One treatment and he was 1000% better. I highly recommend him, he travels all over the country. He does something slights different than regularly chiropractic work, he almost does deep tissue work to loosen everything up rather than just adjusting bones.
I also use magnetic hock wraps and love them. You want to start off slow, and you don't want to leave them on more than a few hours. The longest I've left them on is 3 hrs. What I usually do is put them on as soon as I grab him for grooming and tacking up, that way they're on for like 30 mins before riding and it helps to warm up his joist and loosen him up
