ABC of the Horse

A Handbook of Equine Anatomy, Biomechanics, and Conditioning

Author: Pauli Grönberg

The extensive anatomical section contains a wealth of information on the skeleton, ligaments, and muscles. The Latin and English nomenclature is complemented by unique full-colour illustrations which clarify the position and relationships of anatomical structures. The approach of the author is that of a seasoned physical therapist who is deeply worried about the present state of equine care and the lot of horses in general. A great deal of attention is therefore given to clinical examination of the horse and the treatment of its injuries by various physiotherapeutic methods including manipulation, massage, stretching, and acupressure. The author stresses that in treating injuries the equine physical therapist should always work in close collaboration with the veterinary surgeon. Grönberg, who has secured several patents for inventions relating to the horse's harness and equine care, also gives valuable advice regarding shoeing and training, and the proper equipment.

An examination of the various types of horses used in sports describes the lameness conditions to which each horse type is particularly prone, as well as differences in prognosis. Guidelines on how to proceed when a diagnosis cannot easily be reached help you manage conditions when faced with the limitations of current diagnostic capabilities. Clinical examination and diagnostic analgesia are given a special emphasis. Practical, hands-on information covers a wide range of horse types from around the world. A global perspective is provided by a team of international authors, editors, and contributors. A full-color insert shows thermography images. Updated chapters include the most current information on topics such as MRI, foot pain, stem cell therapy, and shock wave treatment. Two new chapters include The Biomechanics of the Equine Limb and its Effect on Lameness and Clinical Use of Stem Cells, Marrow Components, and Other Growth Factors.
