Do her withers shake a whole bunch when you touch them? My vet does chiro and acupuncture also and I hadn't thought of my mare twitching her withers as causing pain, I just figured it was because I was touching her lightly and she was just shooing it away like a fly. My vet said if she just spazzes and twitches for a long period of time while I'm touching her, it's a lot of muscle spasms causing pain. She called it "wind", I guess that's the acupuncture term. She did some and the twitching stopped.

It's started up again and she snips at me if I brush her withers with my hand.

That might be something to bring up with the chiro too.

She doesn't do the shiver/shake thing but I will keep an eye out for that.

Okay. I'd never heard of it until my vet said it. It's extremely noticeable once you are aware of it. Their withers just shake. It's so odd..
