Another combination of eastern and western medicine is also offered by FEVS which is chiropractic medicine. Adjustments of the horses vertebrae and pelvis are done with minimal amount of exertion. The joints and facets of the boney junction are able to be manipulated due to the angle they lie in as well as the minimal structures around them.
For horses with chronic neck and back pain, FEVS uses mesotherapy. A series of very small needles penetrate the inter-dermal layer of skin and depending on the horse’s condition, inject substances to stimulate the mesoderm.
For a fast, definitive diagnosis of skeletal issues, FEVS uses digital radiography (DR) by Eklin, the gold standard of the DR industry. In as little as three seconds, we are able to clinically review an x-ray image on a high resolution monitor. The images can be manipulated for the best possible diagnosis, and allow for immediate treatment or quick surgical/podiatry consults. This is extremely valuable to horse owners and trainers involved with horse shows, competitions and pre-purchase exams.
IRAP or AUTOLOGOUS CONDITIONED SERUM
For the equine athlete suffering from joint degeneration and/or inflammation that conventional treatments do not help, FEVS offers Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein (IRAP) therapy. IRAP therapy uses the patient’s own blood to produce a serum concentrated with regenerative and anti-inflammatory proteins. This serum is completely autologous and contains no drugs, so the possibility of adverse allergic or anaphylactic side effects is drastically reduced.
FEVS offers Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) therapy for horses suffering from chronic pain and lameness. This alternative non-invasive therapy is generally used for degenerative or acute problems in soft tissue and bones. Most patients require approximately three therapy sessions. FEVS uses the Versatron from Sanuwave, which uses an electro-hydraulic design for greater depth of penetration and focused area that minimizes surrounding tissue damage.
Equine therapy involves the use of non-invasive therapeutic procedures and techniques similar to those used in human rehabilitation. Reduces pain, shortens healing time and promotes a stronger recovery.Uses massage, stretching and therapeutic equipment. With maintenance will prevent re-injury. Great for horses of all lifestyles, breeds and ages.
Ultrasound is one of the primary tools for evaluation of soft tissue trauma. FEVS veterinarians use Digital Ultrasonography to carefully evaluate Muscles, tendons and ligaments, relative to their corresponding boney structures. We locate and measure inflammation and fluid accumulation in order to prescribe a treatment protocol to maximize the patient’s healing response. Our veterinarians having attended recent continuing education seminars in order to offer accurate diagnosis for your horse.
FEVS veterinarians perform cooled semen and artificial insemination on a regular basis. Clients may have these procedures done at their location, or may haul their horses to our clinic.
For the equine athlete suffering from joint degeneration, inflammation, or tendon/ligament injuries that conventional treatments do not help, FEVS offers Interleukin 1 Receptor Antagonist Protein (IRAP) therapy as well as stem cell injection treatments. IRAP therapy uses the patient’s own blood to produce a serum concentrated with regenerative and anti-inflammatory proteins. This serum is completely autologous and contains no drugs. Stem cell treatments are acquired from the patient’s own fat stores, processed, and re-injected into the soft tissue lesion in need of treatment. The possibility of adverse allergic or anaphylactic side effects is drastically reduced with both treatments. Depending on the lesion or injury either one or both therapies could be used.
