CHIROPRACTIC MEDICINE

The goals of chiropractic treatment are to restore normal joint motion, stimulate nerve reflexes and reduce pain and abnormally increased muscle tone. Successful manipulation requires proper technique (i.e., correct direction, force, amplitude and speed) and increased psychomotor skills. A thorough knowledge of vertebral anatomy and joint biomechanics is also required for proper chiropractic evaluation and treatment. During a successful adjustment, a "release" or movement of the restricted joint is often felt. An audible "popping" sound may also be heard during treatment as the applied force overcomes the joint's resistance.

Chiropractic care can help manage the muscular, joint, and neurological portions of certain muscle or skeletal injuries in performance horses.

Chiropractic care provides additional diagnostic approaches that are not currently available in veterinary medicine. The main indications for equine chiropractic evaluation are back or neck pain, localized or regional joint stiffness, poor performance and an altered gait not associated with obvious lameness.

Dr. Lauren Underwood recently completed the chiropractic course at Options For Animals College of Animal Chiropractic and is certified by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA). For further information or to schedule an appointment, please call our office at 979-778-2529.
