Daniel Equine provides the latest technology for diagnosing, treating, and/or rehabilitating your sport horse(s). Certain lameness issue can be discrete which is why our in-depth lameness examinations observe your horse under a variety of circumstances:
- Different footings
- Under saddle
- Flexion tests
- Neurologic examination
- Regional anesthesia (nerve blocks)
- Referral for MRI/CT/Bone scans which we stay in direct contact with the hospital and Boarded Radiologist throughout the process
- Stem cell
- Bone marrow concentrate (BMAC)
- Class IV Regenerative laser therapy
- Functional Electrical Stimulation
We have the ‘Lameness Locator’ made by Equinosis which is a precise measurement of horse movement and picks up subtle asymmetries. We use this instrument to measure our sport horses before their competitions, to help diagnose subtle lameness and to monitor the progress to the various treatments we offer. Using the lameness locator allows us to objectively quantify response to treatment, percentage of improvement to regional anesthesia (nerve blocks), degree of lameness including impact/stance/or pushoff phase of stride.
In addition to first opinion lameness exams, Dr. Daniel works with your regular veterinarian to provide second opinion consultations. These may be after you have tried several treatments and it is important to have these records available for review prior to the consultation.
