Veterinary Chiropractic Care for Your Horse
Does your horse:
- Have difficulty with performing a desired movement?
- Have a hard time bending the head and neck one direction or the other?
- Have loss of impulsion?
- Loss of fluidity and ease of movement?
- Not collecting consistently?
- Having trouble with flying changes?
- Cinchy, bucking, fighting the bit?
- Has a hard time holding a leg up for the farrier?
- Change leads when not asked?
Has a sore or cold back?
These signs and many others including a change in behavior, can indicate that your horse needs a veterinary chiropractic adjustment. Trauma events, daily wear and tear, unbalanced riding, improper fitting tack, slips and falls, lameness, surgery and dental procedures can all cause vertebrae subluxation (rotation) and inflammation which leads to pain, decreased range of motion and ineffective bio-mechanics of movement.
Veterinary Chiropractic works with the spine, nervous system and musculosketetal system to restore range of motion and movement.
Dr. Janine Wilson combines her experience as an equine performance veterinarian with chiropractic evaluation and treatment to provide a comprehensive approach to treating your horse

I offer a personalized, experienced approach to the diagnosis and treatment of your horse. My practice philosophy emphasizes client education, treatment options, and open communication while practicing evidence-based veterinary lameness, medicine, and equine chiropractic care. As a rider, I understand the relationship between you and your equine partner and would welcome the opportunity to help you with your horse.
