Chiropractic Care & Acupuncture Therapy
Chiropractic uses biomechanics and the responses to lead to improved symmetry in the body and ultimately, less compensatory injuries.
For Equine athletes, it's an essential therapy that helps keep their range of motion, elevate horse's performance and develop optimally, while staving off long-term lameness issues.
Dr. Carroll's diverse roster of clients includes some of the top equine athletes in racing, dressage, show jumping, and eventing. She is often praised for her intuitive, patient approach to chiropractic care.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicinal practice that is based on the idea that living organisms contain a road map of energy conduits, called meridians or channels. These carry life-giving energy to and from every body system. Any interference or interruption in that energy flow can disrupt normal function, leading to dysfunction or disease.
Acupuncture treatments involve the stimulation of specific points, with thin needles, laser, herbal, or pressure, along the affected channels to reopen "blocked" energy flow and reestablish normal function.
Acupuncture can also be used as a diagnostic tool to detect an energy blockage along those same meridians.
Often used in conjunction with chiropractic services, CORE Therapies uses acupuncture to help suggest disease patterns within the horse's body and decrease discomfort overall, creating better performance and well-being.
Electro-stimulation (Also known as Electro-Acupuncture) is performed by applying electrical current to acupoints, muscles, and soft tissue; relieving muscle spasms and pain while increasing circulation in a focused area.
When used in a rehabilitation setting, this versatile therapy is also used to strengthen and stimulate weak or atrophied muscles.
