Spinal kinematics in horses with induced back pain

Wennerstrand, Josefine; Drevemo, Stig

Abstract

Back movements are complex and subtle, and changes are difficult to detect with the human eye. Present-day gait analysis systems can identify changes in the back movement, and knowledge of the relationship between such changes and the site of injury will be of help in better localising and diagnosing disorders of the equine back.
