Mia is a 14 year old QH mare. I’ve had her since she was born. So needless to say she is very special to me and yes a little spoiled. She is normally a very sweet girl, so last May 2015 when she was cranky and started rubbing her head and face all the time I knew something was up. I called the vet out and she had an ear infection. So we treated that. The head shaking and rubbing continued even though the ear infection was gone on recheck. We then treated her for allergies, which we already knew she had. The steroids would lessen the head shaking and rubbing but it never stopped completely. She at this point would no longer roll. When winter came I thought if it’s allergies she would feel better. But that wasn’t the case. When weather fronts would come through she was in so much pain, pawing the ground and shaking and rubbing her head I had to give her pain meds. I tried to make her comfortable but she was miserable. After exhausting what traditional medicine had to offer I was at a loss. It was suggested to me to try chiropractic. I was very skeptical to say the least. But I had tried whatever I could to help her. She had her first treatment with Dr. Christine 2/24/16, we did both chiropractic and acupuncture. What I noticed initially was her muscles were very relaxed. After her third treatment I came out and found her covered with mud. I was so excited that she was rolling again! The head shaking and rubbing was also improving. We continued treatments every two weeks until the end of May, now we are going every six weeks. Mia is doing great! She’s moving great under saddle and only occasionally shaking her head. I can’t even begin to say how grateful I am to Dr. Christine and Carla for everything. I have my sweet girl back! Thank you so much!
