Only horses that have their full range of motion, can keep their entire body healthy and functional. If some parts are not working properly, we can already notice an altered metabolism of the tissue directly affected and/or even a change in a distant organ. This is similar to a clockwork. If one part is not working properly - even the smallest - the whole clockwork is affected in its function. The problem is that because the body is adapting so well, malfunctions of the tissue can hardly be detected by checking the blood or by imaging techniques. Osteopathic practitioners develop a so called "trained eye" through their special trainings and education. With only their hands they examine and treat the effects of given restrictions of the horses movement and their compensation mechanisms. They put the results in relation to the entire body and try to correct imbalances accordingly.
