HORSE LAMENESS EXAMINATIONS
Colorado Equine Lameness Exam Services
Lameness can dramatically affect your horse’s comfort. We offer conventional lameness examinations enhanced with very specific soft tissue and muscular examinations to zero in on the issue(s) causing the lameness.
Our lameness examination includes the following:
- A full physical examination
- Detailed muscular and myofascial examination
- Limb flexion analysis
- Examination while the horse is in motion at the walk and trot
- Neurological examinations
Digital radiography (x-ray) and ultrasonography are both important modalities that may be necessary during a lameness examination and are both available while on-site. The advantage of a digital system is that the images are immediately available to direct a complete treatment plan.
Advanced certification in veterinary chiropractic care and veterinary acupuncture and the utilization of cold LASER therapy complement traditional treatment plans. These services can all be offered by Colorado On-Site Veterinary Services at the time of the lameness examination enabling complete treatment and improving your horse’s comfort.
