How was the Psoas muscle injury diagnosed?

 She had on going hock and stifle soreness. They did a rectal exam and felt swelling so they then did a rectal ultrasounded. You could see the inflammation of The psoas muscle and while they were there they found the stress fracture.

Very interesting.... Definitely a difficult area to image! Fingers crossed that she continues to improve for you.

 Thank you. Coming on here and reading the unsuccessful stories is so disheartening. Hoping I hear some positive ones

Have you tried shockwaving the area? May be difficult to penetrate to that depth but it may be worth a shot!

 Yeah. Unfortunately it won't go deep enough. I'm working with a great lameness vet and he's recommending acupuncture for release of the muscle and some stretches. But most importantly keeping her rode lightly and rehabbing her slowly. If shock wave isn't going to go deep enough I'm not sure about other therapies either. I'm tossing the idea of red light or mega wave... But even with them, they have to go deep enough.

I have a somewhat positive pelvis/psoas injury outcome for you. Horse fell, fractured pelvis and tore multiple muscles. Was deemed a pasture pet, then one day I said forget it Im just going to try again. Pelvis healed, battled the psoas pain for a LONG time. Magnawave is the only therapy that helps him. If he has a big weekend ahead of him we will put him on Robaxin. Honestly, I don't think the scarred muscle tissue will ever be 100%. He won't ever be an every weekend rodeo horse, but he can still race.

He won't ever be without the magnawave. I also was taught how to stretch him properly, so every day rain or shine he gets a 20-30 min stretch. Also, make sure your hind hooves are on point! He started acting sore one week...brought him in right away and vet suggested X-ray hooves. Sure enough we was negative. Fixed the angles and the pain was gone.

I tried a long list of therapies, so please feel free to message me if you want any input or suggestions for what personally worked for my boy.

Good luck!
