Equine Lameness Evaluation
Dr. Wilson will perform a complete and through lameness evaluation by examining the following checkpoints:
- Medical history
- Gait and posture analysis, without rider
- Gait and posture analysis, with rider
- Physical examination including joint flexion
- Motion palpation of the spine and joints
Once the examination is completed, adjustments may be performed and then the posture and gait of the horse will be reassessed for response.
The appropriate treatment will be discussed with the owner or trainer. This may include recommendations for shoeing, nutritional changes, exercises and intra-articular joint injections.
Dr. Wilson will follow up in a few days after treatment to see how your horse is performing. Follow-up appointments can then be scheduled to keep your horse in optimum condition. Regular chiropractic and lameness evaluation is essential to the overall health of your horse.
