Case Studies

Clinical cases summarized on this site are examples of injuries that have been successfully treated with FES, and in most cases, also included riding exercises developed specifically for each case. A thorough veterinary examination should initiate any FES treatments and periodic follow-up examinations by the attending veterinarian are important

Treatment protocols are given to provide only a general guideline of the number and type of treatments for that particular case.

The movement evaluations listed were performed through observation and riding of the horse by the owner/trainer and/or practitioner. Only generalized notes are included in the summaries to be used as an overview of the progress of the horse. The client was provided with specific exercises during each movement evaluation to work on with the horse. Clients were encouraged to remain in communication with their veterinarian during the rehabilitation program and to update the practitioner on the progress of the horse so any modifications necessary could be made.

These examples are offered only as an overview of specific cases, which may or may not apply to another similar case. Each clinical case presents with issues that are unique to that particular horse.
