From Cadence Ridge Equine:
Do you have or know of a horse that is suffering from laminitis or founder? It doesn’t just effect the hoof! When there is a rotation of the coffin bone it puts… stress on the deep digital flexor tendon, which is then connected to the muscles higher up in the leg and shoulder. Also, a horse that is experiencing any kind of pain in their front feet will try to take weight off of them and use their neck to try to lift off. This makes the rhomboid or crest muscles over developed and tense, sometimes creating knots. Equine sports massage and Electro-acupressure can be used to relieve some of the tension and make the horse more comfortable.
There is a magnitude of possibilities and things massage can help with! Everyday I’m still amazed at the possibilities! Keep looking back as I will be sharing some of the things I can help and work on! if your horse has a specific problem, just ask and we’ll come up with a program for them!
