Dr. Elizabeth Scott has always had a passion for horses. She began competing at the age of four and has continued to diversify her equine knowledge and experience. Dr. Scott showed horses in Arizona and learned the importance of equine chiropractic care. Seeing the drastic improvements in function and the overall health of her horses opened her eyes to the necessity of chiropractic.
In 2004, Dr. Scott became an equine massage therapist. When she decided to expand her knowledge and go back to school to learn how to adjust horses, she was faced with deciding between veterinary school and chiropractic school. For Dr. Scott, chiropractic school was the best option. She chose Parker University and completed Parker University’s Animal Chiropractic program. After completion, she then became certified by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association.
Helping equine athletes has always been Dr. Scott’s number one goal. She quickly realized keeping riders and trainers adjusted was a game changer in giving horses the best outcome.
Dr. Scott has a successful practice with 70% equine and 30% human patients. As with most equine practices, a lot of travel is involved. Dr. Scott travels all over Texas and with her current clients to their out-of-state events.
It is crucial to know and understand animal chiropractic laws and stay within the scope of practice. Working with veterinarians is not only best for the animal but also builds vital relationships within both professions.
