    Default Can anything be done for a lame horse with pinched nerve in back

    Just wondering if anyone has experience with pinched nerve in the back?

    I would get an equine chiropractor. I know one that does both humans and horses.

    How was this determined?

    Usually "pinched," despite what it sounds like, is caused by inflammation.

    All I know is nerve blocks did nothing and the vet came up with this diagnoses. The mare may not be okay, currently lame.

    I have a horse that develops a 2/5 lameness on his RH when the nerve that passes by the SI joint becomes inflammed. It is consistently and immediately relieved by the osteopath, not to be confused with a chiropractor (as trot: horse is lame, adjust, trot: horse is sound). I have had 6 different chiropractors work on him multiple times per person and none have been able to change anything. One was able to determine the problem was SI, but wasn't able to give relief.

    Have you done 3 days of IV DMSO to attempt to cut out the inflammation?

    Flyracing, where do you find and exactly what is an osteopath? I apologize if that seems like a silly question. Thanks, fg

    Just an update turns out it was not a pinched nerve in the back. It was a check ligament injury, mare should hopefully recover with some rest and rehabilitation.
