Expert Lameness Locator Serving Southeast Alabama
The Latest Technology to Detect Lameness
If your horse isn’t performing up to your expectations or you notice that its gait is not as smooth as normal, it may be showing signs of lameness. When you bring your sport horse to Alabama Performance Horse Services, Inc., we’ll use the latest technology — the lameness locator — to pinpoint even the most subtle, difficult-to-detect lameness so we can help your horse recover and return to peak performance.
How the Lameness Locator Works
The lameness locator uses three sensors attached to the horse’s pelvis, right fore pastern and head to collect data about your horse’s gait as it is trotting. A portable computer then prints out a report based on what the sensors detect. This report can show which leg is the lame one and help pinpoint the primary source of lameness if more than one leg is lame.
Diagnosing the Issue and Developing a Treatment Plan
With the lameness locator, we are able to confirm lameness our trained veterinarian sees and detect more obscure lameness as well, allowing us to diagnose your horses’ specific issue and create a treatment plan to address primary and compensatory lameness. The thorough information we receive from the lameness locator allows us to give your horse the most appropriate care for its lameness so it can return to excellent health and performance.
