We are engaged in an era of true medical breakthroughs and are discovering revolutionary options for treating joint disease in both horses and humans. Techniques for treating joints have come a long way in recent years, and they’re advancing daily. New imaging technologies, such as MRI, CT, digital ultrasound, and nuclear scintigraphy, have helped us understand anatomy better and improved our ability to visualize joint injury. As a result, we’re now able to utilize nonsurgical joint therapies.
The concept of helping the body heal itself is a fundamental shift from the medical approach of yesterday. These are exciting and promising times in equine medicine, and help for your horse is advancing daily. Injuries that were career-ending just a few years ago are now manageable.
