Equine Sport Performance
Equine Sport Performance is a mobile equine chiropractic/therapeutic service in the Los Angeles, California area founded by Dr. Michael Reuben.
Dr. Reuben has also traveled extensively outside of the Los Angeles area to provide his services. He networks with a broad range of veterinarians, farriers, trainers, saddle fit experts and other professional consultants who enthusiastically pursue effective and holistic options for horse improvement.
Dr. Reuben utilizes a high-tech instrument-based approach to Musculoskeletal Manipulation based on the well-known "VOM" or "Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation" technique developed by Dr. William Inman, DVM. Dr. Reuben has practiced and evolved these methods since 2004, establishing a high success rate in the treatment of back, neck, shoulder and hip-related issues in the equine athlete. Dr. Reuben had two decades of prior practice as a human chiropractor before becoming a CVCP, or Certified Veterinary Chiropractitioner.
Demonstrations of this technique have resulted in dramatic transformation of previously underperforming horses into virtual movement machines. Trainers and veterinarians who have seen this relatively new approach will gladly tell you that they have likely witnessed an evolutionary jump in the restoration of maximum performance potential in the horse. You may e-mail Dr. Reuben for their contact info.
New cutting edge therapies that enhance results!
Dr. Reuben has added additional therapies to his treatment protocol that have greatly enhanced the results on horses. Dramatic response and improvement are often seen after only one treatment session! This also means that maximum improvement is gained with a lesser number of sessions needed, only 1 or 2 in many cases. Therapeitic modalities are applied in a specific order to build on corrections to tissues and metabolism gained by each instrument. It is similar to a combination lock that requires all numbers dialed in an exact order to open the lock. The treatments and therapies rendered in order are:
1. Orthopedic Joint Release (based on Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation)
2. Arthrostim Myofascial Release
3. Rapid Wave Release
4. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy
Why would a horse need such treatment?
Many performance and behavioral problems stem from increasing levels of pain and stiffness coming from your horse’s back. Maintaining the flexibility and mobility of your horse’s back is important, not only to the overall health of your horse, but to the safety of the rider as well.
Do you know how to recognize when problems are coming from your horse’s back? Are you looking for effective, high-tech and non-invasive treatment for your horse? Are you looking for a solution for a lameness issue that has not responded to traditional veterinary medicine? Would you simply like to improve your horse’s performance, health, and disposition?
We can help you with these questions and a whole lot more!
