(EQ28) Rear Hoof Shoeing Modifications for Hind Limb Pain

Sunday, March 4
4:00 PM - 4:50 PM
MBCC, Palm C, Level 3

CE Credits: 1

Pain causes many changes in limb movement. These changes effect flexion of joints, strain on ligaments, hoof and limb flight, hoof landing, and muscle tension to name only a few. Veterinarians and farriers frequently try to modify shoes so that they will have an effect on break over, limb flight and landing, and ground reaction forces in hopes that these modifications will relieve pain and therefore improve overall hind limb mechanics. The purpose of this discussion is to evaluate what modifications have been recommended, what effects these modifications may have on limb biomechanics, to evaluate the research literature as to true effects of these modifications on biomechanics, and to discuss these modifications relative to ground surface interactions.
