Re: [RC] horse back pain - Lynne Glazer

Yep, I'd go straight to the feet, first.

Let's see some body and feet photos!  Especially if we can see whether there are medial-lateral imbalances.  And how he's muscled up will show how he's been carrying himself.

And, one should probably go further down and check the hooves!  Lots of times hock pain is also a symptom.

Did they check his hocks? My horse is having the same problem right now, pain in the lumbar sacral (sp?) joint area. A knowledgable friend told me, "lower back pain isn't the problem, it's a symptom. My guess is hock or stifle"  Well, turned out my horse got kicked HARD right on the stifle (zig zag cut to prove perfect aim) a week before his last competition.
I had two other friends whose horses had bad back pain. After having hocks injected and tens unit work to loosen up back they were much better and competed again for a time.
