Reins to Recovery are Using Chiropractic Care in a Brand New Way
Applying chiropractic care to species other than human beings is becoming more and more popular. We are seeing our dogs, our cats, our farm animals, and so many other members of our esteemed animal community, being treated with chiropractic care in an effort to provide the same level of wellness that chiropractic professionals do for people. The results, while difficult to measure because the animals cannot tell us how they feel, seem to be quite positive as the general wellbeing of these animals is on the rise.
Reins to Recovery is a non-profit organization in Seymour, Indiana that is dedicated to the well being and wellness promotion of children and adults with disabilities. The organization uses horseback riding, and interaction with equine friends as a therapeutic intervention for disabled individuals in an effort to help them form meaningful connections and increase their wellness.
Reins to Recovery acknowledges that individuals with disabilities, no matter how old, sometimes struggle with the development of self-confidence, social interaction skills, and independence. In using interaction and the creation of a relationship with horses, Reins to Recovery is doing something that not many organizations are able to accomplish. It has been shown that the relationship between the rider and the horse has done wonders for the individual’s wellness on a therapeutic level and the organization is committed to their cause.
The wellness of the population they serve is not the only concern of Reins to Recovery, however. The organization is fully staffed with a chiropractic team to monitor and improve the musculoskeletal health of their horses. They are also dedicated to promoting the cause of chiropractic care for animals as this approach has proven to be effective in treating their horses musculoskeletal maladies. Reins to Recovery holds clinics that display how chiropractic care can positively influence a horse, increase awareness of chiropractic care in animals, and provide information regarding the need for a spinal adjustment or any other chiropractic care pathway in horses and how to determine when your horse could use an adjustment.
In this unique crossover between chiropractic care for animals and community wellness promotion in a vulnerable population, Reins to Recovery is doing something that is seen nowhere else. It often takes forward thinking and a diversified experience to materialize an organization like Reins to Recovery and in Seymour, Indiana, the community has a rare asset to turn to.
