The goal of sports medicine is to keep equine athletes performing at their highest potential. The practice of sports medicine often involves optimizing the musculoskeletal health of the horse, but other body systems (such as the nervous system, the cardiovascular system and the upper and lower airways) are equally important.
At Carolina Equine Hospital, we believe in an approach that optimizes the overall health of the equine athlete. We can identify many ailments affecting your equine athlete by using advanced diagnostics, including thorough physical and lameness examinations, diagnostic nerve blocks, computerized radiography, digital ultrasound, upper airway endoscopy and gastroscopy.
Regardless of the level of physical demand your equine recreation, from eventing to barrel racing, dressage or cutting, leisurely walking or pleasure trail riding, we can help you maximize your horse’s comfort and achieve your goals.
