Horses receiving regular care.
  • Need less feed as they are better able to utilize what you give them
  • Have lower vet bills as their general health is improved
  • Have lower chiropractic bills as the dentistry is about TMJ comfort and TMJ’s are related to the Altas. The atlas affects the sacrum as the atlas is connected to the withers via the nucal ligament and the wither is connected to the sacrum via the longissimus dorsi muscle. When the sacrum shows inflammation it is also common to have nerve pressure on the sciatic nerve which causes pain and a decrease in circulation to the hind legs. Yep can all be secondary to dental problems!
