Abnormalities in gait are some of the most common causes of decreased athletic performance and discomfort among our patients.
The diagnostics of a lameness evaluation may include:
- Hoof-tester application
- Observation at different gaits in hand/under saddle
- Flexion (stress) tests
- Diagnostic anesthesia (regional and joint blocks)
Once the problem area is located we can use imaging to help diagnose the issue at hand.
