Lameness Diagnostics and Treatment

Lameness is one of the most common reasons for poor performance or discomfort in the horse. Appropriate diagnosis can help direct treatment and get your horse back to performing at their best. Determining the cause of the lameness begins with a skilled examination that may involve diagnostic nerve blocks, radiographs, and/or ultrasound. There are a number of treatment options available at our hospital, including intra-articular injections, stem-cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma, IRAP, physiotherapy, and surgery.
