Phase I – Introduction

My purpose for this newsletter is to introduce you to the first phase of my treatment program. The next newsletters will continue in greater detail about Phase I, before moving on to discuss, and illustrate Phase II of my treatment program.  The intent of this information is to share my observations with you, and to assist you in the restoration, and maintenance of enriched health, and well-being of our animal friends.  Clarity is an essential portion of these newsletters, so please direct your questions to me so that I can continue to improve this information service. I realize that a large amount of information is condensed into these newsletters, so they are archived on my website for your future reference. They will also be revised from time-to-time to enhance communication, and to keep you abreast of current research.

Phase I - Evaluation and Treatment Summary

Following each evaluation and treatment, detailed documentation is created for my records. From the detailed documentation, an Evaluation and Treatment Summary is created for you. The Summary is exactly that, the highlights of the evaluation and treatment that was performed that day. It is a brief communication expressing my findings, the treatment provided, and the assigned recommendations (your homework) that should be implemented to facilitate rehabilitation, longevity, and optimal performance. 

Creating detailed documentation for every treatment that I have performed over the years has allowed me to observe that many animals present with patterns of fixations, or subluxations. With the exception of trauma, it is my observation that these patterns are present in an extremely high percentage of sport horses and competition animals. Trauma will alter and sometimes present a reversed pattern of fixations from that which is found in cases of chronically failed biomechanics with compensatory adaptive physiology.

I have divided these patterns into two phases to assist you in making sense of your Evaluation and Treatment Summary.  Comparing your summary with the example summaries should help to increase your awareness of the current biomechanical and functional ability.

Thank you for your continued interest in animal chiropractic.
