acupuncture for horses in redding ctAcupuncture & Chiropractic

Acupuncture is the ancient art of Chinese energy medicine. It is used to balance the energetic pathways in the body called "meridians" and in this way restore the body to health. It is useful not only in musculoskeletal problems but as a diagnostic tool and curative agent in acute and chronic diseases of all kinds.

Chiropractic care is the art of spinal alignment. Muscle spasms, various sorts of trauma, and postural deviations caused by the horse compensating for an injury or painful joint, can cause subtle dislocations or "subluxations" of the spine which impinge on the spinal nerves, causing pain and the loss of full function and range of motion. Reducing these subluxations restores comfort, and brings the animal back to a more functional state. Most horses love being adjusted!
