    Default Trying again... chiro and massage in Chicago area?

    Anyone know of a good chiro/massage therapist in the Chicagoland area? For my horse, of course

    Cindy Harney in Newark does Massage therapy - just google her and her town and she pops right up. Her husband is an excellent dentist(equine) as well. I do not know of a chiro that is currently practicing.

    Dr Heinze: Fox Valley Equine. He's a real vet and travels all over Chicagoland to do chiro and vet stuff. There is also a lady in Harvard that is very good but I can't remember her name at the moment.

    Where in Chicago? Dr. Dan Beatty is great, but I think he only sees horses on the south side of Chicago because he lives in Indiana.

    Dr. Dan is the BEST! Call Dr. Heinze's office though (Fox Valley Equine). They are out of Elburn and can help you out or probably make recommendations on who would come out to your area.

    Ditto on Dr. Heinze. I have him coming in 2 weeks for my horse's first chiro appointment. I am new to Heinze's practice but I have heard wonderful things about him and the other vets in his practice.

    haha actually we use Heinze! He really is great, he does great work and our horses love him! I was wondering if there was someone who specialized in chiro and massage together. We used to use one guy, Mike Buskohl, who does a combination of both, and the results are AMAZING! Unfortunately for us, he is now so in demand at the larger barns he no longer has time to come do ours! So I'm looking for someone else to try and fill the same slot. There's a woman named Rachel Heart who apparently does what he does and comes highly recommended, but I can't get in with her until Oct 29, and that's only if I trailer to a different barn!

    Dr. Malitsky does Chiro, nutritional stuff, PT, and some massage/stretching stuff. PM me if you want info.

    Rachel Heart is a DVM. She used to be with Merritt & Associates. Lisa Hickey is EXCELLENT for massage. She does not do Chiro.
