The goal of chiropractic work is to remove interference from the Central Nervous System and make sure all skeletal structures are in proper alignment. We provide combination chiropractic with massage therapy for animals as well as chiropractic sessions for horse and rider or concierge services for pets.
Dr. Madelyn Rauch graduated from Life University in 2016 ready to bring chiropractic to spines of all kinds! Dr. Madi has always been passionate about animals, she attended Auburn University in pursuit of attending the veterinary medicine program there. After doing some research and soul searching, she realized she could help animals AND their humans in a more holistic way through chiropractic care!
What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is most commonly thought of as a back pain, neck pain or headache fix, however it has a lot more to offer than that! Chiropractic care removes interference to your body’s main highway of communication, your central nervous system. Your brain communicates with every muscle, organ, tissue and cell in your body through spinal nerves that come off of the spinal cord, which is housed within your spinal column! Your central nervous system controls every action, thought and process that happens in your body. A chiropractor’s job is to find places in the body where that communication may be strained, and removes that interference so your body can communicate, adapt and change more efficiently!
Dr. Madi is a phenomenal chiropractor for not just humans but our 4 legged loves as well! Our dog LOVES her adjustments! The moment he sees her, he excitedly walks over and sits, in anticipation of feeling better. Due to his breed & height, his back leg was bothering him & we saw improvements after 2 sessions with Dr. Madi! Besides her adjustments, Rex loves her calming & loving demeanorDanielle, Essential Acupuncture

Llama Clemente and Eduardo were scheduled with repeat massage and chiro last week. They love Heather and Dr. Maddie and their massage and adjustments have improved their comfort and gait. They are working llama hilking llamas who are 14 years old now and I want them to feel their best. On the spur of the moment I treated myself and 11 year old llama Carbon to a chiropractic adjustment. I have been nursing a sore shoulder, have tried massage and limiting doing the things that hurt but the painfulness kept getting worse. Carbon’s dear face has become a bit twisted and he was toeing out and taking small steps. In a few short minutes he gained a new lease on life! With a TMJ adjustment he could smile again (and probably chew better too), and with his C2 aligned and some other work on his sternum he shook it off and had a more comfortable stride. Such gentle magic! I knew Dr Maddie adjusted people as well so I got on her table. Her adjustment was painless and very gentle. It turns out my scapula and my collar bone were both out of place. Probably due to an injury last summer that I tried to ignore with busy-ness. Dr. Maddie told me in next 48 hours I might experience some pain as my body healed. She was right. There was even some weird phantom pain from a hyper extended thumb injury which “healed” months ago which was excruciating but I was able to release the memory of it! I am so much better now. I will treat Carbon to another session which includes both “musculo’ and “skeletal” next to increase the benefits to his body even more.Bev V., Second Wind Llamas
Dr. Madi has a lot of “tricks” up her sleeve, as she has studied many different techniques, that are gentle and specific neurologically based chiropractic! She utilizes bio-geometric integration to analyze you and your animals body’s as a whole structure that relies on all parts to work efficiently!
Please complete the New Client Form prior to your first appointment. Please make sure your horse is in the stall and relatively clean for the session. We encourage owners to be in attendance to ask questions.
Once you are an established client it is not necessary to be present for the appointment. A quiet stall is best for treatment to aid in relaxation and healing. Please do not book your treatment during feeding times to prevent distraction.
We are happy to send you a photo and notes from the session if you are unable to attend. An assessment form will be sent by email or text after each appointment and available in your private portal on our website.
After your horse’s chiropractic session your animal may need to go to the bathroom more frequently. This is normal and allows the body to continue to release toxins naturally. Please provide ample water. A short walk after the session will be beneficial to stretch their legs and allow for further release. Natural movement is encouraged: short, frequent walks and light riding, long and low to encourage stretch.
Regular chiropractic sessions provide the best results for your animal. We recommend a minimum of three weekly or sessions every two weeks to begin.
Bodywork for injury, performance, and senior animals is recommended every week to two weeks. General maintenance is recommended to prevent injuries and keep the joints fluid and muscles in optimal condition. Bodywork works best when used to keep the body in balance, and prevent illness or injury. As a result regular sessions on an average of 4 weeks are the general recommendation. However, a customized treatment plan will be created for your animal based on personality, activity level, and owner’s input.
