Equine Lameness & Sports Medicine Treatments

Blue Ridge Equine Clinic sees a wide range of lameness cases referred from throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Many of these referrals are chronic cases with previous work-ups or treatments, yet the horse remains lame or exhibits poor performance.

With over a century of cumulative experience in the area of lameness, we have concluded that these patients often require a thorough physical examination, regional anesthesia (nerve blocks), and diagnostic imaging for accurate diagnosis. In most cases, our veterinarians are able to successfully diagnose and recommend appropriate treatment for our lameness patients, which range from seasoned performance horses to backyard companions.

Treatments may include:

  • High-intensity focused shockwave
  • Mesotherapy
  • Joint injections * Ultrasound-guided injections
  • Cryotherapy
  • Regenerative Medicine (IRAP, Stem Cell, PRP)
  • Acupuncture
  • Chiropractic evaluations/adjustments
