Details

This book is designed to provide information on all aspects of clinical management of tendon problems in horses. The chapters cover the spectrum of understanding structure and function, diagnostic modalities, treatment options, rehabilitation strategies, etiology of injury, and prevention of tendon injury. All authors have vast clinical experience and are among the most qualified in their respective areas of expertise. It is the editor’s goal to provide the reader with a state of the art resource that will aid in dealing with tendon problems.

This includes diagnosing and treating the acute injury to assessment of healing and formulating a rehabilitation strategy. All of these aspects are important if an optimal outcome is to be achieved because treating tendon injuries is not a simple exercise. Each injury is unique and each horse is unique. No one treatment or rehabilitation strategy can be universally applied. All injuries must be carefully diagnosed and monitored throughout the rehabilitation process. This book is a guide for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of tendon injuries that is practical, reliable, and easily understood. It will hopefully allow veterinarians to deal with tendon injuries with more confidence and a higher quality of post injury return to function. (Imprint: Nova)
