Lameness is one of the most prominent issues seen in performance horses. While some lameness problems can be addressed at your farm, further diagnostics may need to be performed at the clinic.

What to expect during a lameness examination:

  • Flexion tests

  • Peripheral nerve and joint blocks

  • Diagnostic Imaging

    • Radiographs

    • Ultrasound​

After the diagnostic images have been evaluated the next step is treatment. The doctors treatment plan is designed for each individual horse and can include many different therapies that can range from joint injections, to rest, even surgery.

Therapies available at Anoka Equine include:

  • Joint Injections

  • Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein (IRAP)

  • Protein-Rich Plasma (PRP)

  • Stem Cells

  • Shockwave Therapy 

  • Mesotherapy 

  • Chiropractic
