Ok, so the equine chiropractor was out the other night at our barn and my 10yo mare Sandie hasn't been adjusted in a long while, so I decided to have her done. The chiro mentioned that her left hind stifle was "loose" compared to the other which might have something to do with her having a difficult time really reaching underneath herself, esp at the canter.
He suggested I spray it with regular listerine once a day for 2 weeks, which I've been doing. But to be honest, I haven't really noticed much of a difference at all. He told me if I didn't, to take the green palmolive dish soap (he said it had to be the green kind for whatever reason!) and slather it on there, wait until she is "about to kick the walls down" and then hose it off!
I'm not sure how these things would "tighten up" her stifle, but then, I don't have any experience using either of them for this. So can anyone else inform me what he's trying to get at with me using these and if you have your own experience/tips, feel free to share! :)
