ORC faculty and the CSU VTH have developed an ambulatory Equine Sports Medicine service (ESM), targeting equine athletes throughout Colorado, and beyond. The primary goal of the service is to support the equine athlete; from birth, through adolescence, competition, injury, rehabilitation, and retirement. Services offered include state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatment for musculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, and medical issues and include:
- Lameness and follow-up examinations
- Digital radiography
- Digital ultrasound
- Extracorporeal shockwave therapy
- Laser therapy
- Joint injections
- Therapeutic management of back pain
- Regenerative therapies (IRAP, PRP, and bone marrow-derived stem cells)
All surgical cases are referred to the Equine Surgery service at the VTH to provide consistent, thorough follow-up of postsurgical cases. The ESM service can also work with your local veterinarian, and strives to return the equine athlete to athletic performance by rehabilitating the entire horse, not just the injured region.
