Horses do not show pain!

Horses do not show that they are in pain or that they are sick or injured, until the condition is quite advanced. By then they are suffering and may be causing permanent damage. Do not forget that horses are prey animals and herd animals.

The natural predators of the herd look for the very young, the very old, or the sick or injured, because they are easier to catch and eat. While the horse cannot do anything about its age, it can hide its pain. Its very life depends on how well it hides its pain.

This is in their genes. You may not know that something is wrong with your horse until it’s too late.

Chiropractic is the only treatment that can treat a specific spinal joint to prevent or break- up scar tissue and bring back normal motion and neurological feedback to these important joints.

Remember that if you do not correct the distorted or restricted motion it will cause abnormal bio-mechanics that cause a joint to wear improperly or tear itself apart. This results in degeneration the joint. The abnormal motion of the joint is also what causes distorted messages in the nervous system.
