Lameness examinations are essential to diagnosing soundness issues.
A lameness evaluation includes:
- A physical exam
- Palpation of the limbs and joints
- Evaluating range of motion
- Watching the horse travel in a straight line and on a lunge line
- Response to flexion of the joints.
Further diagnostics include nerve blocks, joint blocks, radiographs, and ultrasound.
For those looking for treatment for reoccurring lameness or those looking to optimize their performance horses we offer regenerative medicine such as PRP, stem cell, Pro-Stride and Shockwave Therapy.
