I feel our Chiro visit was a bit of a "YES" moment. I've been obsessed over Laz's club recently and more so the way he moved that leg; chipped, stumbled, short strided, etc. My trimmer and I have trimmed and trimmed and tried to adjust it the best we could, but something was missing. Perhaps, that puzzle piece was just given to us by my Chiro.
Dr. W mentioning that Laz suffered quite a hard fall (possibly) on his right shoulder by all the scar tissue he felt and how Laz was tense all through his right side, too tight even with his laminitis past history, would cause him to use that leg differently.
Doing our new stretches says something too. Laz strongly reacts to it. He stiffens a bit for the first few stretches and then totally relaxes and shows huge signs of release.
At any rate; here is a video of his trot (still off of course) from yesterday
to compare with this past November, right before I had vet out to examine his Right Hind sole, etc
It seems something is working. His sole is hardening, growing (visually I can tell) and I think the adjustment really helped loosen his shoulder.
Chiro is coming back Feb 9th and I can't wait :)
I'm over the moon to see Laz moving better and feeling better
And below, thanks to one of our dear friends who is a talented photographer;
Our Holiday Christmas Family Ecard that we sent out
I can't tell you how special this photo is to me.
Hope your Holidays were great and filled with fur :)
