Here is a summary of Dr. Cleveland's findings with one of his patients in Lafayette. Dr. Cleveland's reports make it easy to see improvement.




Julie Calzone's horse, Granite, visited Dr. Cleveland on July 18, 2016. The observations from the session included: cross unders having 50% hoof width disengagement across the midline on both the left and right hoofs, pelvic flexion being 2/3 on both the left and right, poll & cervical spine compensation, and the right pelvis was restricted in extension. He had improvements in hind, spine, pain, mobility, and strength. After given some exercises to do, Granite returned for a follow up session about a month later. His cross unders and pelvic flexion had remained the same and he had no back or pelvic pain! He also still had improvements in hind, spine, pain, and mobility.
