We ask our horses to do many different things. Sometimes the typical lameness exam is insufficient to identify performance problems. We are often times asked to evaluate horses that are stiff in one direction, disobedient, or unhappy. They are not “lame” in the traditional sense.
Performance horses often times benefit from chiropractic adjustments. Symptoms can be subtle and exacerberated by other lameness issues.
Your horse cannot use its back correctly if its neck and back is not comfortable. Just as in humans, back pain can be serious and debilitating.
