Case Study of Orthopaedic Imbalance
This is a sample of the information that the students receive as part of the Equine Orthopaedic Balance® Diploma course. We believe that the health care practitioner attending the needs of your horse (that being upper body work or hoof care) should be knowledgeable in to provide the care your animal deserves. Below is a sequence of videos of a case study and the animal's response to treatment.
This case study is on an endurance horse that vetted out 3 times due to lameness and the underlying issues could not be diagnosed. After this first shoeing, the horse started to respond and get better. After the second shoeing, the horse was entered into an 80 km endurance ride and passed all examinations healthy and lame free.
