    Default elbow injury???????

    As part of the neverending saga of my horse's lameness, her left front leg was blocked yesterday, and the only joint block that seemed to improve the quality of her gait was blocking her elbow. The subsequent radiograph looked completely fine.

    But still... are there tendons / ligaments there that are likely sources of lameness? Any thoughts / experiences w/ elbow injuries?

    Thanks.

    My horse injured the radius ulna ligament, being the elbow ligament.
    We never focussed on it too much because he had also done the collateral ligament of his foot on the same leg and the changes of recovery from the latter were poor at the time.

    We found out because whether they blocked the leg from the bottom to top or from top to bottom he remained lame.
    It's been a while (2004) he had a scinti done, ultrasound & X-rays.
    X-rays did show some changes on the elbow joint too.

    He become sound & serviceable again within 6 months, beyond everyone's expectations back then .
