Iliopsoas Injuries in Sport Horses
It’s among the most common muscular skeletal injuries seen in sport dogs and human athletes. Iliopsoas is also the number one reason people have back pain. Yet there’s very little research about it in sport horses.
In this episode, Dr. Audrey DeClue discusses her research on the iliopsoas muscle, which is responsible for the clinical signs of shivers and stringhalt in the hind limbs of horses.
Awesome podcast. I will be reaching out. This makes so much sense. I have seen so many 3year olds that are short behind and don’t block out. Worse under saddle.
What about toe dragging in front? Could this still be iliopsoas or would that be a different group of muscles?
