By May 17, 2023August 16th, 2023No Comments

At Iverson Equine, we understand the importance of keeping your horse healthy and performing at their best. That’s why we offer veterinary medical manipulation, also known as equine chiropractic care, to our clients.

Why Should You Consider Equine Veterinary Medical Manipulation?

Here are just a few of the many benefits that veterinary medical manipulation can offer:

Improved mobility and flexibility: Regular chiropractic adjustments can help to release tension in your horse’s muscles and joints, allowing them to move more freely and comfortably. This can be especially beneficial for horses that are used for high-performance activities such as dressage, jumping, and eventing.

Reduced pain and inflammation: Chiropractic adjustments can help to alleviate pain and inflammation caused by conditions such as arthritis, back pain, and muscle strain. This can not only improve your horse’s comfort, but also help to prevent further injury.

Enhanced performance: When your horse is feeling their best, they will be able to perform at their highest level. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help to improve your horse’s posture, balance, and overall well-being, allowing them to excel in their chosen discipline.

Prevention of injuries: Regular veterinary medical manipulation can help to identify and address any issues before they become more serious, preventing future injuries.

We use a variety of equine chiropractic therapy techniques, including spinal adjustments and soft tissue therapy, to help your horse reach their full potential. Last year Dr. Iverson completed specialized training and robust education courses on Veterinary Medical Manipulation, and received her Certificate of Equine Medical Manipulation from the Chi Institute. “Seeing the positive impact that veterinary medical manipulation can have on a horse’s well-being and performance is what drives my passion for this field. As a veterinarian, I am committed to providing the best care for my patients, and pursuing this additional level of training has allowed me to offer a holistic approach to addressing musculoskeletal issues. By using chiropractic techniques, I can help horses feel more comfortable and move more freely, which ultimately leads to a happier, healthier, and more successful life for them”, says Dr. Iverson.
