Osteopath at Thunderbird Equine Therapy
Equine osteopath, Charmayne Shapely, of Thunderbird Equine Therapy strives to make horse’s work better, run faster and overall feel amazing. Thunderbird Equine Therapy specializes in mobilizing to increase the performance of your horse. Charmayne works alongside our veterinary team when they are performing pelvic room exams. These exams are utilized in patients that show mobility problems in their spine. Mobility issues are thought to be linked to ovary or gelding scar adhesion, kidney, uretor or bladder restriction. After our examination, Charmayne follows with an equine osteopathic session on the same horse where she mobilizes areas of concern. The collaboration and results from Energy Equine working with Charmayne Shapely have been incredible, and we are honoured she works out of our facility regularly.
