The Chiro came out and worked on Kai today. I had my friend hold her, as I had to work. I'm waiting for the Chiro to call, but my friend said her SI wasn't an issue (which seems weird to me because it was very obviously higher on the right side), but she said she has a 'hardened edema about 2 inches in front of her SI and her back is quite sore as a result'... I knew her back was sore so that's not new information, but I chalked it up to being a result of her SI being out of alignment. She does have a bit of a raised loin and prominent SI, and I just assumed it's it's magnified by a lack of topline and a result of some early trauma due to racing (not in our barn, I bought her last fall from a lovely woman who trains at Hastings in Vancouver), as well as the fact that her pelvis or SI (or both) was clearly twisted. She's has apparently recommended lots of BOT, massage and ideally, hauling in to use the local indoor's Theraplate or taking advantage of the PEMF treatments available next month (which I was hoping to do anyway)..... thoughts?? I haven't spoke to the actual Chiro yet as she's driving, but I can't say I've ever heard of a 'hardened edema', and her raised loin area seems more structural to me than muscular based on palpation.. Pics, just cause... some show her back, some are just cause she's gorgeous IMVH&PO.
