My horse has just been diagnosed with luxation of the pastern joint. However no therapy other than 4 months rest/gradual return to work has been diagnosed. Any other suggestions???

We do not know how this happened. She became very slightly lame on her right front and was diagnosed by nerve blocks and radiographs. I think it is a forward luxation of the proximal pastern. Does this info. help?

Hello Corinne,
Yes I think so. Because this joint is supported by so many structures there are a number of conditions that can cause luxation of the proximal pastern joint. For a list and how to differentiate them and treatment options see Diseases >> Lameness >> Lower Limb >> Diseases of the Pastern.
