Equine Symptomatic Lameness

Equine Symptomatic Lameness | Equine matters | Scoop.it
Why is my horse lame? Why does he keep stumbling? Why does he seem to trip over his own feet? The horse suffering from back pain or injuries can exhibit symptomatic lameness, which can also manifest as behaviour issues including stubbornness or resistance. When the horse is displaying symptoms of lameness and logical treatments are not working, the horse’s owner may turn to injections, anti-inflammatory creams, or chiropractic adjustments at the sacroiliac joint.

Back pain in the horse can be easily overlooked, and misdiagnosed, even by professionals, yet is the cause of so much pain and discomfort in so many areas of the horses body. Care of the equine back (and human backs) is a complicated and long term project but so worthwhile.
