Back Problems and Poor Performance
A real understanding of the horse’s back is essential for the treatment of lameness cases and those under-performing.
Whilst some horses have a primary back problem it is much more common for back pain to be secondary to other problems so it is very important that a full and thorough examination of the whole horse is carried out to establish whether any soreness is originating solely from the back or due to other underlying causes.
We regularly investigate back problem and/or poor performance cases. The clinic itself has ideal facilities for a full investigation, but a preliminary examination can easily be performed at your stable.
