The effects of chiropractic treatment on the range of motion of the carpus and tarsus of horses

Clinical signs of back pain and spinal dysfunction can include asymmetric or restricted joint motion.
Positive support evidence that chiropractic treatment of horses may increase joint ROM of the carpus and tarsus and improve joint ROM asymmetry.

An investigation into the relationship of pelvic misalignment on forelimb hoof size

Pelvic rotation misalignment can be associated with reduced performance and lameness
Redistribution of locomotor forces to other limbs to off-load a limb is a compensatory mechanism
Evidence of a statistically significant relationship between the alignment of the pelvis and growth (length and width) of horse’s fore-hooves

An investigation into relationships of horse and rider pelvic asymmetry.

Assessment of single horse and rider partnerships for misalignments and asymmetry of neck, spine, pelvis
Positive evidence of a relationship between the direction of the pelvic rotation of the horse and rider pelvic tilt.
Positive basis for further research into causal effect relationships of horse and rider asymmetries.

An investigation into the effects of McTimoney chiropractic treatment on axial rotation of the equine pelvis.

Quantitative assessment of the effect of chiropractic treatment on the axial rotation of the pelvis to reduce asymmetry.
Statistical evidence of postural pelvic asymmetry improvement with McTimoney treatment for at least a 3 week period

An investigation into the effects of McTimoney chiropractic treatment on the stride parameters of the horse during trot
