    Default Supplement for recovering SI injury?

    Pretty self explanatory - anyone have a recommendation for a feed thru supplement for a horse coming back to work from an SI injury? Instead of trial and error, I thought I'd ask the COTH geniuses that might have some experience with this.

    Thanks!

    Not personally something I'd give a supplement for. Make sure the horse works properly over his back, walk lots of hills to really strengthen his hind end, and make sure his saddle fits.

    Agree. I'm sure there's a supplement out there that will spout off that it will heal SI injuries. But I seriously doubt it. Other than what has been suggested and inections/ chiro/ massage... Nothing. Then again I don't buy into the supplement market
