Lameness Evaluations

Lameness exams are a daily occurrence here in the heart of the western performance world. Our clients and their horses are asked to perform 5-6 days a week at a very high level. Often time’s very subtle lameness’s require diagnostic blocks, thorough exams and sometimes trial and error in order to find the source of pain. Occasionally radiographs, and ultrasound aren’t enough and we need to refer a case for an MRI or Bone Scan.

 

Here at Independence we take a practical approach to the lameness exam, history and physical exam first, followed by nerve/joint blocks to localize the pain. Several treatments are available on a same day basis in order to expedite the recovery process.

 

We are committed to helping accurately determine your horse’s problems as efficiently as possible.
