We have a special interest in lameness work at Complete Equine Health
Service. We know that as an owner or trainer, you ask the most of your
equine athletes. With the most current knowledge, we offer thorough
evaluation of the musculoskeletal system utilizing diagnostic blocking,
digital radiography, and ultrasonography. For treating sports injuries,
we are able to utilize many current therapies including oral, IM, and IV
joint support, intra-articular medications, PRP, shockwave therapy, and
Studies have shown that acupuncture can be a beneficial treatment that is complementary to traditional Western medicine. It can be used effectively in treating lameness, colic, neurologic disorders, anhidrosis, and reproductive problems. Dr.’s Jimenez and Frederickson completed their training and certification in veterinary acupuncture through IVAS (the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society).
Chiropractic problems are a very common cause of pain for horses, limiting performance and causing behavioral problems. Dr. Jimenez spends most of his time performing equine chiropractic and acupuncture, both highly effective techniques that alleviate back and neck pain and to improve joint mobility and flexibility, as well as the horse's overall health and performance.
