Dr Broadhurst joined Dr Angus and his West Coast Chiropractic team in 2005.

The practice continued to flourish and grow with many families, ranging from babies to those nearing a century, athletes, chronic pain sufferers, dogs and cats visited the practice expectant of pain relief.  They were very blessed to offer this to their patients by using a combination of dry needling, acupuncture, diversified chiropractic adjustments and other wonderful techniques that they are certified in and patients of all species flourished and got better in record time.

Dr. Ron Miles (DVM)
Foxcroft ME

I have had the pleasure of working with Michele on many occasions while practicing equine medicine, she is an extraordinary practitioner for many reasons, first and foremost she knows and understands equine medicine, she understands horsemanship and handling needed to do her profession and you can automatically see the horses respond to her physically and mentally, she understands equine anatomy and physiology and how all systems work together not just the areas she works on, she is excellent at lameness evaluation and I personally have seen her look at horses and when at rest or only within a few strides see where the lameness is, she puts the horse first, she is excellent at client communication and interpersonal relationship with a variety of personalities and always does best by the clients for suggesting what the horse needs, what the client can and is willing to do, and finally she is an advocate for complete integrated care for your equine and ALWAYS consults with your veterinarian for their input and anything she feels need follow up or further diagnostic from your vet, I enjoyed working with her on every occasion and would highly recommend her for you and your horse.

Michele has been 100% instrumental in the well being and comfort of our horses.  With no exaggeration, ALL the horses that Michele has performed chiropractic manipulation with, has come out their next time out with obvious improvements. 
Whether the horse is a bulky draft, sensitive Thoroughbred, or an upper level Warmblood, the results can be seen with in the next day or two. The horse comes back to work visibly better and the horses truly looks SO much better.  
Every horse Michele sees at my farm, she takes an honest evaluation, watches all horses move. Then discusses the horses work, and will explain what she is working on. Michele also gives suggestions for tack and fit. She gives excellent exercises for the rider and horse that are individual for each horse. 
I feel so thankful to have such a knowledgeable professional that has great insight for the health and comfort of our equine friends. I am happy to reiterate the many insightful and positive outcomes Michele has had on our four legged friends!

If it wasn’t for Michele my horse wouldn’t be where she is today. Dolly use to stop and lay down in the middle of the arena during our barrel and pole runs. After the first visit to Michele she quickly determined the reason behind this behavior and worked both on Dolly as well as with me by providing a list exercises to do with her at home. Dolly has become a completely different horse since visiting Michele and winning classes I never thought would be possible with her. I truly can’t thank her enough for transforming Dolly into the incredible athlete she is today!

Susannah Miller

 I highly recommend Michele. I met her on one of her early trips to Maine. She is wonderful with animals. I watched her handle them with great care, almost as if they were her own. She explains what she is doing so that you understand it. She doesn’t have a problem telling you, this animal is in pretty good shape, and not push you to have unnecessary things done. She is kind and compassionate, the best of the best.

Bonny Bailey Waters

Michele is amazing with the horses, has a very good eye seeing what is wrong and fixing the problem, the horses always used to just relax when they saw her and loved their treatments

Kaylie Hodgson

Michele and I met a couple years ago. My chocolate lab Emmitt had been his by a car and in severe pain. My Veterinarian Laura Tardiff recommended having Michele have a look at him. I have been seeing her on a regular basis since. He is pain free, he can run, roll over and snow bath, something he enjoys alot. Emmitt loves it when we go to have an adjustment and see Michele, he loves her and her liver treats she spoils him with. I dont know what would happened to him if we hadn’t met her. She is Amazing!

Lori Jandreau

I cant say enough about Michele and her amazing skills as an equine chiropractor. My mare catty went from dead lame and unridable to show ring ready after a just a few sessions and guidance from Michele, she is incredibly patient and knowledgeable even with the cattiest of mares

Melissa L.

I have known Dr Michele Broadhurst for over 4 years now and I have not only come to love her work, work ethic and honesty but also her love for people. Dr Broadhurst’s impeccable abilities were made known to me through veterinary colleagues whose patients had been attended to. I have had the privilege to sit in some of her consultations in our veterinary practice in Cape Town, and the results of her work were not only visibly evident on the patients but the testimonials from the clients matched the outcome. I would recommend Michelle’s services to any of my patients at anytime and I sincerely believe that whoever gets the opportunity to work with her, will not regret the experience.
