Equine Sports Medicine

Equine Sports Medicine is pivotal in averting equine lameness, a multifaceted issue encompassing injuries, soreness, and discomfort. Through a combination of advanced diagnostics and tailored treatments, Dr. Iverson works to identify underlying causes and implement interventions that not only resolve current problems but also stave off potential injuries down the road.

By fine-tuning a horse’s physical condition and addressing any biomechanical imbalances, this approach optimizes their agility, strength, and endurance. This not only contributes to more successful competition outcomes but also extends the longevity of a horse’s athletic career.

Additionally, Equine Sports Medicine is a preventive tool against the development of chronic conditions. Regular assessments and interventions help identify subtle changes that might go unnoticed but could evolve into larger issues without proper management.

By preventing injuries, resolving discomfort, and optimizing performance, it ensures that our equine companions can thrive in their athletic pursuits and enjoy a higher quality of life throughout their journey.
