Frequently Asked Questions
Most riding horses can benefit from structural alignment. Horses are not designed to carry a rider or be kept in confined spaces, so alignment problems are almost inevitable.
In the case of dogs, a reluctance to walk, jump, or sit can indicate misalignment.
For more information, visit our About Structural Alignment page.
If your animal cannot stand comfortably on all four feet, it will be very difficult to assess alignment.
If you suspect a fracture or a dislocation, alignment is not a good idea. Likewise, if your animal needs a prescription or medical diagnosis, a bodyworker is unable to provide that. Such cases must be handled by a vet.
