We may recommend this if you notice anything is array with your horse’s performance so we can work out the cause.
We start with looking at their gait and then move onto nerve blocks in where we think the affected area is and work our way from there! A nerve block is an injection that causes numbness to the area- if they go sound where we’ve placed the nerve block, then we’ve found the part that is causing your horse pain!
We may also take xrays or use the ultrasound scanner to confirm this too. We can then create a plan from there whether it be surgical (we can arrange referrals for this), rest or further work.
We can do this on yards if they are equipped with what we need. If not, our Burlyns practice has everything we need!
