Lisa took Princess and Dino to the Chiropractor yesterday. We new Dino needed an adjustment, and we wanted Princess to have a check up to make sure she's in good shape for the competition.
Well, Princess went first. The Doc felt her face above her eyes and she pulled her head away. He said she was out in the jaw, that her jaw was offset. He then felt down her neck and she moved away from his hand when he got down her neck about half way to her shoulder. He said her neck was out. He then felt down her spine along her back, that was good, but when he got to her hip area off to the side and pressed down she squatted like a goat! He said her pelv/hip was out. He said the neck and jaw was compensating for the hip/pelv being out. So he went to her head first and did an adjustment. She stood for him and after the adjustment she looked at him and you could almost see her asking for more. She was like that all the way with all the adjustments. She really like the Doc and he really liked her.
Then it was Dino's turn. He had all the same problems as Princess, although he had to have his adjustment repeated a couple of times. He was fighting the adjustments some and you could just see the pain in his eyes. His pelv/hip was out, but also his stifle muscle was affected. The Doc did a lot of work on this area. The Doc uses a rope to pull there legs in different directions and Dino really fought it and tried to get away. The Doc said he really liked both of my horses and that Princess was just a great patient. He really liked Dino though!
