An investigation into the relationship between rider pelvic asymmetry and equine pelvic asymmetry in relation to the use of physical therapy
Pelvic asymmetries can alter body mechanics which may affect performance.
Physical therapy to improve pelvic symmetry is increasingly provided for both horses and riders.
For horses and riders receiving regular physical therapy, the pelvic symmetry of both improves compared to horses and riders receiving no physical therapy.
This should be an encouragement to riders to not only look after their horses but themselves as well.
Preliminary investigation into the effects of chiropractic treatment and combined with pulsed electromagnetic field therapy on mechanical nociceptive thresholds of horses
Chiropractic therapy and pulsed electromagnetic therapy are frequently considered to support horses and their musculoskeletal health.
Evidence of their effects on back musculature is important to understand for effective use.
This study provides positive evidence of an effect on muscle tenderness in the back compared to no treatment.
A preliminary investigation of limb coronal movement range in horses and relationship to pelvic symmetry
The lateral gait movement of horse’s limbs was sensitive to the symmetry correction of pelvic rotation
This may have implications when assessing and improving horse gait and performance.
Further study would be required with larger cohorts and effects over time to establish a relationship
Jack has been a regular patient since 2013, and for the first few years he only required routine 3-6 monthly checks. He had been previously mistreated and as a result was backed fairly late. He also had a weakness in…
A preliminary study of the effect of manual chiropractic treatment on laterality of mechanical nociceptive thresholds (MNTs) in Thoroughbred racehorses.
Support evidence that manual chiropractic treatment reduces sensitivity to pain along the thoracic and lumbar musculature with independent laterality effects at different sites.
Further research is warranted with larger cohorts, repeatability and over a longer period
