EQUINE SPORTS MEDICINE: Performance enhancement through neurologic re-integration

Dr. Karen Gellman has practiced equine chiropractic and acupuncture for over 20 years, has an advanced degree in equine locomotion biomechanics, is an internationally recognized equine researcher and a featured speaker on posture and locomotion all over Europe and North America. She can help you and your horse become a more functional, integrated team.

Dr. Gellman is the only full service holistic veterinarian between Albany and Buffalo, offering acupuncture, chiropractic, homotoxicology, medical ozone, Chinese herbal formulas and nutraceuticals for horses and for companion animals. She specializes in Postural Rehabilitation, an integrative treatment that resets the postural control system, restoring neutral stance for healing, and relieving physical and emotional stress. PR helps your horse stretch forward, move more freely and connect more effectively with the rider. This modality is highly effective for long term injury rehabilitation, horses that have been rescued from neglect or abusive situations, and those who are sound, but not quite right, not as good as you think they could be.

Common problems helped by Dr. Gellman include:
• Neck or back pain
• Hind end pain
• Resistance to training
• Poor performance
• Uneven gait
• Chronic or recurrent lameness
• Slow injury healing
• Uneven foot size
• Poor foot quality
• Irritability/Anxiety

Springfield Equine Retirement Farm

At Springfield Farm, we cherish a horse’s individuality and appreciate his history. Each is cared for and loved as one of our own.  Springfield Farm is a sixty-five acre farm located in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York and just minutes from downtown Ithaca and Cornell University’s Large Animal Hospital.  Our care is based on the premise that each animal deserves the best quality of life, including one-on-one attention and focus on individual dietary, physical and emotional needs. Springfield Farm horses enjoy the maximum turnout that weather allows and individual stalls for those days that aren’t so nice.

Boarding fees include feed, blanketing and plenty of individual attention. Veterinary and farrier services are billed to the owner at cost.  As the owners of Springfield Farm, we live onsite and provide direct, personal care for all horses. The size of our operation is small by design. Our combined experience and education will give you complete confidence in your decision to retire your horse at Springfield Farm. Please feel free to contact Lori Elrod at 607-351-1499 or for additional information, request photos or arrange a visit. Visit us online at
