    August KENA Dinner: Complementary Therapies: What they do -- and don't help 

    Watch chiropractic, acupuncture, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy and body-work specialists perform demos on live horses and learn what these therapies REALLY do

    It wasn’t that long ago that options were limited in how to care for and manage horses that either weren’t performing to their potential or those that simply weren’t quite right: often the recommendations included rest and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. Thankfully, veterinary medicine has come a long way and things like acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, osteopathy and kinesio taping are becoming mainstream options for equine health and wellness.

    While the interest and availability of these modalities grows, it becomes less clear exactly how and when to incorporate these complementary therapies in a horse’s care routine. To help clarify what the modalities are, and what they do, the Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) will host a panel of experts who will demonstrate their specialty and inform attendees of exactly what each treatment method can – and can’t – do.  

    Speakers include Dr. Larkspur Carroll, owner of CORE Therapies in Versailles; Jenna Doktor of CORE Therapies; and Dr. Anna Dunlap of Creek Hollow Veterinary Services in Georgetown. Each of these practitioners is incredible in her own right, but their ability to distill down the modalities they use into easy-to-understand concepts is invaluable to horse owners and caretakers thinking of trying something new on the horses in their care.
