A study investigating the potential effect of equine brachiocephalicus muscle tenderness on forelimb kinematics.

Evidence that asymmetrical muscle tenderness in the brachiocephalicus muscle may influence forelimb kinematics
Results suggest when evaluating muscle tenderness by pressure algometry, site within the muscle may be important

An investigation into the relationship of pelvic misalignment on forelimb hoof size

29/04/2014 by in Pelvic symmetry

Pelvic rotation misalignment can be associated with reduced performance and lameness
Redistribution of locomotor forces to other limbs to off-load a limb is a compensatory mechanism
Evidence of a statistically significant relationship between the alignment of the pelvis and growth (length and width) of horse’s fore-hooves
