lameness exam, back pain

A thorough, systematic, performance or lameness exam looks at the entire horse, regardless of where an injury or lameness appears to be. Secondary problems are common as a result of compensation for a primary injury.

Your horse's muscle development, movement patterns, demeanor and reactions to precise palpation of joints and acupuncture points help us solve the puzzle of lameness or poor performance. Often "naughty" behavior is the only way a horse can communicate pain, so we listen to your horse!!

equine ultrasound

Dr. Oakley's training, expertise and commitment to excellence in imaging is a cornerstone of Equine Sports Rehab of Wellington's comprehensive approach to equine soundness. X-ray provides information about bone, and ultrasound excels at evaluation of tendons, ligaments, the surface of bone and the many structures in a joint. In combination, they provide a more complete picture  of your horse's condition and help us to solve the lameness puzzle.



regenerative medicine, Prostride, PRP, A2M, Alpha 2 Macroglobulin

makes use of your horse's own innate healing power. This innovative approach involves drawing your horse's blood and processing it on site to directly treat the painful or injured joint, tendon or ligament.

We use platelet-rich plasma (PRP), Autologous Protein Solution (Prostride) and Alpha 2 Macroglobulin (A2M) to leverage growth factors and other natural anti-inflammatory proteins. The beneficial effects of these therapies generally last nine months to a year when treating joints and do not have the detrimental side effects of cortisone.
