Animal Chiropractic Notes

How do you adjust a horse? you’re so small!

Whenever my human patients discover that I adjust animals, particularly horses, they want to know how in the world do I adjust something so big when I am so small? I obviously jump on a trampoline and do a flying elbow drop off the top ropes. Seriously though, I never thought in a million years that I would be consciously using Physics daily. Think of it, you need a specific angle for your line of drive, the speed has to be fast enough to generate the right amount of force to move the bone, and you have to stand the right distance away from the object you’re adjusting. Anyone have their Physics cheat sheets handy?!

I’ve never seen this before, but theoretically this will work.

Imagine it’s the Monday before a long weekend and your colleague calls to ask for your help with a life or death situation. You quietly pause and remind her that you are a Chiropractor and you don’t deal with these situations. She begins to tell you the story of a surrendered 12 week old kitten that was found half paralyzed in a barn that morning. Since she was the new owner and treating Veterinarian, it was her decision when to euthanize this kitten. She said you have until Friday to make this kitten walk again, otherwise she would be euthanized. No pressure; but I don’t even like cats.
