Equestrian Injury Specialist

Are You a Rider with a New or Nagging Injury?

Then You’ve Come to the Right Place . . .

You’re a rider.  It doesn’t matter if you’re world-class, Olympic-class, fox hunting, dressage, eventing, or recreational; you have a passion for riding, and want to do so in a healthy way until you are no longer physically able.

You’ve fallen off horses, been kicked and stepped on, and crashed into things.  You’ve been yanked when the horse got spooked and bolted. You may have been injured when the horse wouldn’t load into the horse van.  There’s a good chance you’ve had at least one head injury.

As a result, you may have a problem with any or all of the following:

  • Unbalanced riding
  • Independence of body parts
  • One side more developed
  • Performance anxiety
  • Old nagging injuries

In addition to these physical problems that are equestrian-specific, you also have an emotional connection with your horse that goes beyond words. Few people outside the horse world understand this.

The Problem:

You have to try find a health care provider that might understand equestrian injuries, and then try to explain what happened (if it’s a new injury), or how your riding is affected and what you aren’t able to do, if it’s an old nagging injury.

In addition, most health care providers have no idea of the bond that exists between horse and rider, and they don’t do any mental or emotional work to help you cope with the stress of what you’re dealing with in your riding, much less in the rest of your life. In riding, and in life, everything is connected to everything, and many people don’t understand that.

To make matters worse, most health care providers only have one or two “tools” in their treatment “bag”, so you have to go to five different practitioners or travel to five different states to try to get all of your needs met.

The Solution:

I’ve been treating people with horse-related injuries since 1996, a few years after I got out of chiropractic school.  I love horses, and the people who ride them.

I understand your sport.  I understand the mental-emotional connection between you and your horse.  And, having successfully treated over 100 riders (I stopped counting at 100), I know what you need, and have the skill set to get you back to where you want to be.

I’m not a “standard” chiropractor.  I want you to get better as fast as possible.  I don’t want to have to see you for lots of visits.  You’re busy and don’t really have time to go to the doctor several times a week.

Your appointments with me are one hour (no “assembly-line” treatment here).  Your body has all the answers to what is wrong, what needs to be done, and in what order.  My job is to ask the right questions, and then treat you accordingly.

We will do many different therapies and treatment techniques, including advanced chiropractic work, applied kinesiology, manual therapies on your muscles and soft tissues, mental-emotional clearing techniques, and clinical nutrition, just to name a few.

If you’ve had a head injury or concussion, we will do some advanced neurology techniques so that your brain will work better and heal faster.

I will tell you what you can do, not what you can’t do.  My intention is for you to fulfill your potential as a rider.  You can’t do that if it takes too long to get well.

What to do now:

Schedule an appointment with me, and I promise you will feel different when you walk out of my office.

Again, my intention is for you to get better, and for your riding to improve, as fast as possible.

Right now, while it’s fresh on your mind, schedule an appointment using our easy online appointment scheduler.

You can also free to contact us via phone or email, if you have any further questions.

Thank you very much.
