Kissing Spines

Kissing spines can be the result of a variety of factors, including poor saddle fit and improper training that allows the horse to carry itself with its head up, back hollow and not engaging the muscles in its core. Kissing spines is very painful and may show early signs through the horse resenting grooming, especially the back area, drops or dips when the saddle is put on or makes it difficult to mount. In some cases, the bones fuse. Early diagnosis can really help.

The good news however is that Niagara Equissage Pulse® Digital can be enormously helpful relaxing the muscles along the back. Whilst this is not a cure for kissing spines it will help the horse tremendously. Work with the hand unit directly along the back to let the muscles relax and take the inflammation out of the spine, especially where the bones are touching. This needs to be carried out whilst also using the back pad and preferably perform two therapy sessions a day.
