Part 1: Why

Part 1: Why

Trauma 

Of course as equestrians we participate in higher risk activities than the everyday person. As riders we assume risk of injury every time we spend time on or around our horses. There’s a lot that can go wrong in riding to cause injury, low back pain included.

Many riders who see me about their back pain relay grand tales of falls that began it all, with the residual back pain ebbing and flowing in severity over the months and years that followed the original accident.
