When I last checked in re:Mabou’s bodywork, he was sore all over (poor guy). Since that first visit he had a follow-up a week later after having a week off (where he looked great). We had his one month follow-up yesterday.
His hips and back still looked great, and he allowed her to get pretty deep into his glutes and hips to massage and adjust.
I was disappointed to find out that his armpit, pectoral and inside of his front legs were now really sore. Because he is so delicate, he wouldn’t let her do any work until she treated the area with acupuncture, with a bunch of needles stuck into his heels.
He has always had low heels, which combined with his propensity to pull shoes despite living in bell boots 24/7, makes him more difficult to shoe.
The Chiro suggested that his feet may be imbalanced, and that I should have an X-ray done of his front feet so the farrier can go off of that to determine his proper break over point. She also wants the farrier to roll his toes and pointed out that he has flares.
My knowledge of shoeing is admittedly limited, so I have been trying to educate myself via magical google.
