A preliminary investigation into laterality differences of range of motion during flexion and extension of canine proximal limb joints
A preliminary investigation into laterality differences of range of motion during flexion and extension of canine proximal limb joints Research into musculoskeletal imbalance and laterality differences of limb joint range of motion (ROM) in canines is limited. Bilateral ROM measures…
How many people can claim to win Crufts on their first outing? Well that is exactly what Jane Dalton, McTimoney Animal Practitioner and her rescue dog Roxy did, qualifying with DAGDAG East Just a Smidge and winning the Crufts Medium…
A preliminary study to investigate the range of motion of the proximal limb joints and relationships to British Veterinary Association/Kennel Club (BVA/KC) hip score in dogs.
Hip dysplasia is one of the most common orthopaedic diseases in dogs and often show minimal clinic signs
Passive joint ROM demonstrates integrity of the joint without influence of muscle activity.
Dogs with a higher BVA/KC hip score on one side may predispose to an increased measured extension range of that hip joint and the contralateral forelimb elbow extension.
