I have had the pleasure of working with and knowing Dr. Katie Manfredi for the last 12 years. She was a student of mine in the classes I taught at Parker University, College of Chiropractic. While at the University, she started working in my veterinary clinic as an animal assistant. Many years later she was again a student of mine in the Animal Chiropractic post graduate program I teach at Parker. So I have known Dr. Manfredi as a student, as an employee, and as a colleague. She is an outstanding individual. Dr. Manfredi is honest, of the highest moral and ethical integrity, and is a hard and dedicated worker. She is intelligent, works well with people, and is a loving and caring doctor. I would rate her in the top 5% of individuals I have ever taught or had the pleasure of knowing and working with. I would happily rehire her and consider it an honor to have her on my team. I recommend her without reservation to anyone wishing to have her as part of their team. As we say in Texas vernacular, “She is a keeper!”

I didn’t really know how to convey the impact of how beneficial chiropractic treatment has been for Bella using my own words, so I just thought I would show you the before and after. These videos were taken two days apart with a trip to your office in between. Your treatment is the difference between us having to say goodbye to our sweet Bella and getting to enjoy her for a little while longer. Our four girls, ages 8, 5, 3, and 2, are so grateful we found you!

I sought out chiropractic care for my 9 yo OTTB mare when she began acting “out of character.”  She began crabbing when I put on the saddle and she also began frequently bucking after jumps, a behavior that is unusual for her. I had the saddle fitter come out to recheck the fit, but everything seemed fine there. A friend recommended Dr. Katie, so I figured we would give it a shot. Dr. Katie identified numerous areas in Libby’s spine that were out of alignment and tender when touched. I was somewhat skeptical at first, but the difference in my horse was literally night and day! She is accepting of the saddle, and has not bucked once since her adjustment 2 weeks ago!

I started bringing my 12 year old lab/shepherd mix Otis to Dr. Katie a few months ago. He is a big boy and has some problems with his hips. He loves going into the office to see Dr. Katie to get adjusted. She spends a lot of time treating Otis and he feels better after each visit. His mobility has improved since seeing Dr. Katie.

I highly recommend Dr. Manfredi for chiropractic care, for horses and people. I was considering retiring my Welsh pony, Chance, who I was competing with in hunter/jumpers pretty regularly. His performance began to decline rapidly after a fall he took in the field. He became reluctant in his transitions and began to refuse jumps. We tried injections and other pain meds, which helped somewhat, but we could tell he was just not the same horse. I was at my wit’s end, and someone recommended to have a chiropractor out to check him, as a last resort. Chance was like a new pony after his treatment. He moves even better than he did before his fall. Now Chance and I receive regular adjustments from Dr. Manfredi, and I’ve noticed better balance in the saddle myself.
