Equine Chiropractic Evaluation and Treatment


My chiropractic evaluation and treatment consultation typically includes:

For New Patients


  • A description of the patient including:  name, age, gender, breed, color, and unique markings

History of the chief complaints including: 

  • Location, onset date, duration, exacerbations, and remissions, previous medical and chiropractic history. 
  • Handedness of the rider and the side of body the patient most frequently sleeps on.

For New and Established Patients

  • A brief updated history of the patient's activities and level of training since the previous consultation.
  • Observation of the patient's postural adaptation to the environment.
  • Static and motion palpation of the spine and primary musculoskeletal system to help locate areas of restricted range of motion, as well as areas of pain.
  • Spinal testing with the Activator (a chiropractic adjustment instrument) for testing and sometimes treating areas of the spine that are subluxated, (or misaligned causing abnormal function, and frequently causing pain).

Gait analysis: 

  • Observation of movement at various gaits as needed to demonstrate soundness.
  • Formulate a written assessment of my impressions as a result of the evaluation regarding the patient's current biomechanical state.


  • Manual Adjustments of the spine and pelvic misalignments to reduce subluxations.
  • Determine Assignments needed for the client to perform between chiropractic visits to enhance the patient's optimal rehabilitation and performance.
  • Create a detailed written Report of Findings for the patient's chiropractic records.
  • Create a Summary of my Findings, which is provided so you, the client can have a general overview of the findings, treatment, and recommendations formulated during each visit.  If you would like a copy of the more detailed data recorded for my records, please give us a call.
  • Follow-up appointment scheduled as needed.
