Sunny was injured 4 years ago by hitting her poll in the door frame. Overtime the damage became apparent, she wasn't eating which I assume to be stomach problems but instead was TMJ. And soon she was dragging her toes, which was muscle stiffness. Evidently the damage is like a human hitting their C1 area which throws out everything below it.
Sunny's had treatments over the years, like chiropractic, accupuncture, massage, and supplement treatments. Each treatment has benefit but not lasting. Unfortuantely the accupuncture vet was not as skillful as he said and he caused damage by pulling her front legs outward giving her lasting pain in her chest and shoulder area. Afterwards she couldn't walk for an entire week after he did that!
Currently I'm giving her a supplement product, Recovery EQ Extra Strength and massage her with the HEALING TOUCH MUSCLE/JOINT GEL. I rub it on her TMJ area, poll area, forehead, around her ears. I massage it in her chest and shoulder area. And her back legs around the (I don't know the name of the joint) high up on her hind legs near the flank, and also along the muscle that runs along the rump/buttocks. I include the thigh (I don't know the correct name), and the hock.
Sunny moves well and she likes the product and is very cooperative that I'm using it. It mets with her approval and she gives it her seal of approval, which is so important to me. Horses know about such things. That is also true about the Organic Fly Spray because all of my horses stand still to be sprayed with it, nobody walks off. Even if they are standing freely in the pasture, they will stand for this fly spray. If it were a chemical spray, they would walk off. I'm not telling you anything that you don't already know. Horses know.
I also use the massage gel on myself and family whenever we have stiffness anywhere, like a tight neck, or maybe the back from lifting too much. It works great!
Thank you Nancy for putting out such wonderful products, and please don't ever stop making them! I love the massage gel and the fly spray. I'll never buy anything else now that I know about them. Betty W. Ohio
