Chiropractic Care & Acupuncture Therapy
Chiropractic care uses bio mechanics, neurology, and physiological responses to identify and address patterns of use/compensations through out the body. Benefits include combat fatigue, helps identify asymmetric patterns before an overt lameness and improved performance.
For equine athletes, it's an integral therapy that improves their range of motion, elevates horse's performance/efficiencies, combats fatigue, and address patterns of lameness.

Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine practice that is based on the idea that living organisms contain a road map of energy conduits, called meridians or channels. These meridians carry energy to and from every body system. Interference or interruption in that energy flow can disrupt normal body functions.
Acupuncture treatments involve the stimulation of specific points, with thin needles, laser, or pressure, along the affected channels to reopen "blocked" energy flow and reestablish normal function. Herbal supplements are often used in conjunction in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Often used in conjunction with chiropractic services, CORE Therapies uses acupuncture to help identify and address patterns of dysfunction within the horse's body. Doing so can help improve comfort overall, enhance well-being, and encourage better performance.
Electro-stimulation (Also known as Electro-Acupuncture) is performed by applying a measured electrical current to acupoints, muscles, and soft tissue. This can relieve muscle spasms/pain while also 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.
