A thorough lameness examination is essential when diagnosing the cause of gait changes, poor performance, or unwillingness to move freely and happily. A combination of visual and physical examination, palpation, hoof testers, flexion tests, nerve blocks, digital radiographs and ultrasonography are used to investigate the underlying cause. A lameness exam is a very specialised step wise process that takes commitment, time and expertise that we are always happy to provide. Following a diagnosis of the cause of lameness, we can then work together to make a treatment and management plan. The end result could make a world of difference to your horses performance and comfort and your riding experience.
