Our veterinarians have experience in sports medicine and lameness evaluations covering all disciplines and breeds of equine athletes. We pride ourselves on our diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities.
Many lameness problems are diagnosed with a thorough examination combined with diagnostic nerve and or joint blocks. Lameness examinations may be performed on the farm if arena or flat surface is present or at the hospital. We have a 60 foot round pen and a flat concrete run to perform our lameness evaluations.
In addition to diagnostic nerve and joint blocks, digital radiography and ultrasound are available allowing an accurate diagnosis and therapeutic regimen. Based upon the lameness evaluation and diagnostics performed, a therapeutic plan will be developed that works best for you and your horse.
Therapeutics available at Strain Equine include: intra-articular joint injections, shockwave therapy, IRAP therapy, laser therapy, and Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP). Furthermore, the veterinarians work closely with a certified equine chiropractor and farriers for additional therapeutic options. Additionally, support and education in maintenance therapy is available by our veterinarians.
