I thought I'd read and heard it all, and maybe I did read this, too, but it sure seemed like a new idea....chiropractic work for equine head shaking.
I know a lot of you use chiropractors, but I never have and have never wanted to go down that road. My feeling has always been that a horse will naturally work things out. I respect that others do it, and I've seen one in action and was very impressed with her technique and knowledge, but it just wasn't for me.
Yet, I have this competing mental twitch--I always look for patterns, in life and with horses. I kept thinking...Cowboy broke his P3....he stands with his left foot out all the time....now he's shaking his head....head shaking has to do with the trigeminal nerve....BRICK WALL.
Maybe it's not a brick wall after all. Maybe, just maybe, his head shaking is from pressure from his back putting pressure on or pinching his trigeminal nerve.
I have calls into various people, and I'll soon know how to proceed, but I can assure you, the next thing that will happen is a chiropractic consulation for Cowboy.
Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with this?
