How do you treat stringhalt?


Does anyone have any good treatment or methods for stringhalt?


Answer ( 1 )

  1. There are many ways to treat stringhalt effectively. Treatment depends on the type of strings being used, the position of the issue, and if there is another underlying issue or not.

    Different horses have different degrees of tolerance for treatments before they will react again with symptoms.

    The lower back/pelvic area is less sensitive than other areas in most cases. Ground-based treatment is one approach that was developed by Sylvain Durocher, who also created TRE (Tension Release Exercises).

    Laser Therapy has proven to be very effective at reducing symptoms as well. Also see the answer to “what causes stringhalt in horses?
