I have to say, mate, that chiropractic works and not just for the human musculoskeletal system. In fact, because horse owners so frequently turn to chiropractic care as a remedy for equine back pain, and chiropractic manipulation works so well on horses with back pain, that a new study was developed to compare the effects of two different types of chiropractic techniques, spinal manipulation and spinal mobilization.
The results of the study demonstrated that manipulation and mobilization both increased spinal mobility. According to the study, SMT causes the spine to move beyond its normal limit in range of motion, while mobilization usually is only effective within the normal range of joint motion. While mobilization produced consistent delayed increases in spinal mobility or flexibility between treatment sessions, SMT achieved immediate therapeutic effects. Such SMT displacement effects lasted between treatment sessions, whereas mobilization effects did not.
But, the bottom line is that chiropractic works and is effective in a variety of techniques, not only on horses, but on humans, too! So, giddy-up, and see your chiropractor today!
