    Mudpie needs to see the chiropractor(: He's all out of whack. We have to wait, though, because he just healed from a fractured splint bone and we don't want the chiropractor to be adjusting something and then have it re-break!

    Can't wait! :)

    I am pro chiro as well....

    Personally, I had a mild case of Scoliosis when I was a teenager, my chiro gave me some exercises to do every day. It really helped straighten me out a little without a back brace. I still am not completely right...but better.

    I have used a horse chiro that's clientele is based from the race track and NFR horses.
    He is awesome.... I have seen huge improvements in horses that he has treated.
    HOWEVER, he will tell you when there is a deeper issue going on. A lameness issue in a foot/leg will effect the whole body. He will ask you to go to the vet(of your choice) to have the horse evaluated for a deeper issue if he corrected a horse and he is still not right. He has helped with proper saddle/pad fit and shoeing. If I want him out to do a minimal eval. He will do so, and if the horse does not need adjustment he will just charge me a $20 bill to come look...very fair. After all he could do an adjustment even though not needed and charge me 5X that.

    I like a good one, there some not-so-good ones out there though....

    I am a firm believer in Chiros, especially with the barrel horses. I know my horses inside and out, and when they start giving me little hints the chiro is the first one I call to come out and have a look. If they are stiff in the neck, ribs, don't want to cross over, ect....I call the chiro and they are out either in the back, poll, neck, ribs, shoulder, hips, ect.

    But our guy doesn't just come out and pop them, he checks them over and if they don't need it then he will tell you that and not just crack them to get the money. The horses LOVE him!

    I'm another pro. I don't know the mechanics of it all, I just know that my mare improved after treatment.

    I trust my Chiro more than most vets for certain things and her ability to assess a horse for issues. I would rather have her do a PP if I had to choose between her and the vet. She is THAT good.

    Hmm interesting..

    Mine is very good, she worked for a practice for a long time. Now she owns a holistic practice, so she mainly just does chiro and acupunture.
