Shoulder Sweeny in Horses
Trauma to the point of the shoulder is a common injury of horses. It can occur from a kick or a horse passing too close to a solid object. Often this results in damage to the suprascapular nerve that traverses over the top of the neck of the scapula, the big wide flat bone that makes up the shoulder and the top half of the shoulder joint. This nerve innervates the two large muscles of the shoulder blade, the supraspinatus and infraspinatus. If damaged severely enough the nerve quits functioning and the result is loss of function and atrophy of the scapular muscles. This article discusses clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of this problem.
