The news item is about: Diagnosing the cause of lameness can be a complex process of elimination, involving desensitizing different parts of the limb to see how it affects a horse’s gait. Dr. Michelle Delco, an assistant research professor working with Dr. Lisa Fortier’s group, aims to make this diagnostic process more precise. She is investigating observations that sometimes blocking the stifle joint improves lameness that originates from the lower limb. Delco hopes the findings will improve practitioners’ accuracy in diagnosing the source of the lameness and lead to quicker recovery.
