Equine Diseases and Dysfunctions
Below you can view a number of different diseases/dysfunctions for which the CURO.system has been used. By clicking on the name of the disease/dysfunction you can read more about the subject and CURO application.
With the aid of an AMG muscle analysis it is possible to investigate a horse suspected of muscle tension in the back, something commonly associated with the problem of Kissing Spine.
If a horse moves without balance or is crooked during training then it could be the result of a non-symmetrical use of specific muscle groups. With an AMG muscle analysis it is possible to quickly identify such muscle issues and in addition to identify which forms of training bring the horse back into symmetry. Measurements can be made on any superficial muscle and the horse can be trained on a longe or with a rider in any form of training or exercise. The subsequent analysis of the results can reveal which gait or exercise your horse uses most symmetrically and how you should best approach training of weak muscle groups.
With an AMG muscle analysis it is possible to assess whether a lameness issue is muscle related. If a horse has suffered a muscle injury then lameness is often a commonly associated symptom, brought on by the fact that the horse compensates for the weaker, injured and painful muscles. Measurements can be made for any superficial muscle and the horse can be worked on a longe or with a rider. The results of an AMG muscle analysis will reveal whether a horse has a muscle injury in those muscles measured.
An AMG muscle analysis can be a very valuable tool to help you assess a horse’s condition and abilities when purchasing a new horse. The measurements can be made on any superficial muscle you wish whilst the horse is worked on a longe or with a rider in any form of training. The subsequent analysis of the results reveals which level of training the horse is currently at, how symmetrical it is during physical activity and whether it has any muscle injury issues. In this way you as a buyer can form a more qualified assessment about any horse you considering buying as well as minimize buyer and seller related issues later on.
