Unhappy When is it time for a Chiropractor visit?

Hey guys,

Its official my horse has a sore back. it doesn't seem to serious at the moment, but i don't want to wait for it to get bad enough for huge treatments.

anyone know when its time to give my chiropractor a call and come help my mare out? And do you guys know any other treatments i can do myself, just so i can help her find some comfort?

I don't really want to spell her, i know it usually doesn't help with a build up of muscle tension.

Really would appreciate your answers.

Thanks guys

I'd say if she's sore now , it's time. You can try doing stretches or little massages that you can find on the Internet but your best bet will probably be to call the chiro.

I guess I don't understand your question.

Your horse's back is sore. Period. Call the chiropractor and lameness vet now. There's no sense in waiting.

If your back was hurting, would you wait until it was really bad before you went to the chiro or doctor? Of course not. So don't make your horse wait.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Vet would be best I think. Chiro will do no good if muscle issue, or broken rib/cracked rib.

Horses make me a better person.

Whoever you get out, be sure to ask what they think is the cause of the problem. If it's conformation, you may just need to have the chiro out on a regular basis, but if not then you should find out what's causing it.

The best time to call a chiro out is before there is even any trouble, but definitely if the horse is sore then you should seriously call the chiropractor out and possibly the vet.
