Horse riders, horse lovers, and equestrians everywhere will enjoy this new book from our favorite controversial chiropractor, Dr. Daniel Kamen. Dr. Dan explains how any horse owner or stable keeper can take proper care of their animal. These animals are the same equine version of highly trained athletes, he says, and like any athlete they are susceptible to strain or injury. Whether the patient is human or animal, the basic chiropractic technique--manipulating the spine to return misaligned bones to their proper position--is the same. Kamen says, "If it has a spine, I can work on it." With the aid of a few bales of hay for height, and a few of these easy-to-follow techniques which are accompanied by over 170 illustrations, you can give your animal the proper care he needs to keep him on track. Dr. Kamen has treated racehorses for what he terms "a nagging backache." With this trademark humor and anecdotes about his adventures as an animal chiropractor, Dr. Kamen has again delivered a book that will delight owner and animal alike. A wonderful gift for horse lovers.
