Is Your Horse In Pain?
The likely answer is YES. Most horses will experience some degree of neck, back or hip (SI joint) pain during their lives and a surprising number of horses suffer from some form of chronic pain. Pain can be caused by intense training, ill fitting saddles and tack, imbalanced or inexperienced riders or injury (injury can occur in the stall, turnout or while riding). If the pain is not addressed, it can lead to long lasting postural and gait abnormalities causing chronic pain for the horse.
How do you know if your horse is in pain?
What Can You Do?
To help your horse achieve optimal wellness, it is important to have a team of reliable equine health care providers including a veterinarian, certified equine chiropractor, dentist, massage therapist and saddle fitter.
To personally help your horse in between visits, you can provide your horse with massage, stretches and kinesiology tape.
Providing your horse with routine bodywork can ensure that he or she is able to live a happy and pain free life for many years to come!
