Lameness / Sports Medicine

From your high level performance horse to your backyard pony, we perform in-depth lameness examinations on site with the goal of achieving an accurate diagnosis. Lameness work-ups are systematic and thorough, including orthopedic palpation, gait assessment on different surfaces, flexion testing, and oftentimes diagnostic analgesia (nerve/joint blocking) to localize the area of pain or injury. 

Our staff has experience working on horses of all shapes and sizes. No matter the discipline or breed, gaited horses included, we would like to help return your horse to soundness to both provide comfort and maximize performance. Once a diagnosis is reached, you will be presented with options for treatment and/or rehabilitation to best meet your horses’ needs.
