Veterinary medical manipulation (VMM) is identical to the techniques used in chiropractic, which is a term reserved for human medicine. The exam involves assessing the range of motion of all joints in the body to find areas of decreased motion, called restrictions. Restrictions can cause poor performance, pain and muscle tension. The treatment involves gentle, specific adjustments of these restricted joints to aid in restoration of normal range of motion and increase comfort. Your appointment will include gait analysis in hand, full examination of joints and musculature as well as a complimentary saddle fit assessment. After treatment, a personalized at home training and physical therapy plan will be created for your horse. VMM can benefit any horse- from the newborn foal to the competition horse to the older retiree.
