Is one time chiropractor visit worth it?
So the chiropractor is coming out on march 12th and I am considering getting my horse seen. He started back to training 2 weeks ago, we're now working on dressage, I'm completely switching over, we usually ride hunt seat(only on the flat, i hate to jump), but the past year I havent seriously ridden, just putzd around. Of course right now it's all basics, but he is getting a work out thats for sure! He is more stiff to one side, his neck has been stiff, and he seems a little stiff in the hind somewhere, which I am putting him on a joint supplement per recommendation by my trainer, until I get the chance to talk to my vet about possible mild arthritis ( and if he does have it, it is very very mild as he is not lame or anything just slightly stiff and the past year doesn't like to hold his leg up as high, he will pull it away). So anyways, is it worth it to pay a chiropractor to come out even if its just once this year? I'm thinking it is but I want to know everyone elses opinions. Unfortunately, this guy charges depending on what the horse needs, not just one flat fee. So if he needs a bunch of adjustments it will probably be $300, but if it helps him, it will be worth it. Any advice appreciated!!
