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!

 Hey. I hope everything is going ok with your horse. My horse has slowing started running again after almost 2 years. She is slow getting there. It was a long recovery. My best advice is your rehabilitation program. Work on strengthening their back and engaging the hind end so they pick up their feet. Lunging over ground poles, long and low (equiami and pessoa system while lunging), stretching, chiro work and like said above make sure his hind angles are right. My mare also has sacroiliac dysfunction so she gets her si injected and lumbar area done every 6 months.... Hoping to get to once a year.

Mine has been sore since about April. I’ve had him looked at by 3 vets (2 practices). Nobody could figure it out until a few weeks ago. We weren’t sure if it was the psoas muscle or kissing spines (x-rays show KS but apparently many are non-symptomatic). So on Wednesday the vet ultrasounded the psoas and compared to the good side, the muscle is thicker and the color on the u/s was more inconsistent.

He responded well to bute a couple of weeks ago (felt back to 100% under saddle), but then we switched to previcox and he started moving stiff again.

We’re waiting on cellulitis to go away from a leg (unrelated) and then will start back on bute and a physical therapy exercise program.

Fingers crossed!!!!!!

My mare does better on bute when I run. I use previcox during the week. Sounds like your horse needs some time off? Or have they had this summer off already?

He’s been off since July 2017. He injured his DDFT and while I was conditioning him back in April, he felt really stiff. We spent from April until now trying to figure out what the issue is.

I don’t know anybody around here (north GA) with a Bemer. We did try magnawave but it did nothing for him.
