Acupuncture, Osteopathy, and Spinal Manipulation
Dr. David is trained in both acupuncture and osteopathy. Osteopathy is a therapy similar to chiropractic, which focus on the nervous system and alignment and mobility of the spine. Dr. Rebecca is also trained in acupuncture, and has also completed training in equine spinal manipulation (chiropractic). Spinal manipulation also focuses on the nervous system and restrictions in the axial skeleton with a slightly different approach on adjustments. We find that osteopathy and spinal manipulation pair well with acupuncture, and many times may prevent or prolong the time between treatments with western medical therapies and medications. We have found benefits with these treatments in all horses- from top athletes to older retired horses.
