Dr. Caldwell joined MPES in 2010 and has spent her time with us developing her interests in lameness and sport horse medicine. She has a particular interest in back and spinal pain as a cause for behavioural issues, poor performance and lameness, and this interest lead her to become certified in both spinal manipulation therapy (Veterinary Chiropractic Learning Center) and acupuncture (Curacore Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians). She routinely incorporates these alternative therapies into traditional treatment plans to achieve a balanced, well-rounded approach to her cases.
