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, aetiology of
injury, and prevention of tendon injury. All authors have vast clinical
experience and are among the most qualified in their respective areas
|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
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..
