Sally Swift Centered Riding Mass. from a chiropractic perspective

Sally Swift in her book "Centered Riding" was ahead of her time! An amazing exercise that Sally speaks of in her book will change your riding ability and if the spine with its associated muscles function normally you can achieve full uninterrupted turns.

Sally has you hold your arms at the horizontal and twist at the waist while keeping your arms horizontal. The second phase is bring the arms down like holding a ball and twist again. Finally she has you bring the elbow in and repeat. She makes note of the fact that you may have some restrictions both right or left. In terms of your movement if your spine has subluxations within the thoracic or lumbar you will not turn equally. Chiropractic adjustments along with exercises will enhance your riding without a doubt as well as your horse's ability to move freely.

Equine Alternative Health Care Mass

The growing popularity in Alternative Equine Care is wonderful to see. Equine Chiropractic is not a replacement to vet care but rather and integrative method that will improve the performance of your horse.

Chiropractic care looks at the whole animal and evaluates the bio-mechanical function in regards to the nervous system. This intricate nervous system runs the entire body and small short circuits on a micro basis without symptoms can lead to major issues later on. Your vet is wonderful at treating these major issues but why wait till the issue is major. More and more owners see the benefit of regular chiropractic checkups to avoid these major costly problems.

Foal or Puppy Chiropractic Care

When is right time to have your foal or puppy checked by a chiropractor? This is a common question.

Chiropractic Subluxations {spinal bones that do not move correctly which interfere with normal nerve function and result in abnormal organ and muscle function} are caused by 3 major factors ---- 1. Stress 2. toxins 3. trauma.

Your newborn foal or puppy has just experienced 2 of these major factors in a big way. Birth is a very stressful process for mom and baby. The newborn has trauma from being pushed through the birth canal and experiences a toxic environment for a slight period of time due to the loss of oxygen when going from a passive breathing environment within the womb to an active life outside.

Having your newborn checked by an animal chiropractor as soon as possible is very important. Once you can handle the baby this is the time. Common subluxations are usually in the pelvis and upper cervical regions. The subluxations will definitely affect performance later in life when the horse has a rider on them or when the dog is trained for athletic activity such as agility.
