Equine Therapists & Entrepreneurs Stay Informed!

Spine VS Muscle

A pain response can be both! The skeletal and muscular system work together. Once we get the muscles to release through the whole body I'm able to use skeletal mobilization to pinpoint what more to focus on or see if it all releases. This often times takes more than a few sessions to begin "peeling" the onion layers back

This is also why I work in conjunction with many of the chiropractors in the area as addressing compensations and finding the patterns of tension really helps everything work together.

You also have to think about what's causing or hindering a place, such as, the back to be sore?

From personal experience I have a pretty sore low back myself. I did a lot of physical therapy and massage sessions. Tried a few chiropractor sessions, however, the adjustments wouldn't stay due to the myofascial throughout the body holding me in a tension pattern and repetitive chronic muscle tension that needed consistent sessions to fully begin releasing before it went back into a pattern. A maintenance schedule of about once a month for my own body to maintain this and keep the triggers away was needed as well. When I got the muscles to release and myofascial worked on, it was the first time with consistent sessions I began having relief. To even get there the therapist had to break through the superficial layers and myofascial to get to the deep spasms underneath.

The same goes for horses and not every horse is the same. There can be other issues going on that calls for another approach of intervention in conjunction to what we are achieving with the horse through bodywork.

There is a time and place for chiropractor and veterinarian care. I fully advocate this whole wellness team approach. I use this combo in my own healthcare and for my own horses. I always work with the other professionals in the field to achieve the best outcome for your horse!

Together these modalities work best!

Example: - horse had accident - vet called for exam - farrier called for evaluation of hoof - bodywork therapist called for appt - chiropractor called for appt - more diagnostics by vet after appts - pinpointed therapy by bodywork therapist based off imaging - follow up diagnostics by vet - results seen by vet

*Collective appointments contributed to results for horse*

A balance between eastern and western medicine. A balance between holistic and conventional methods.
