OBJECTIVE To characterize compensatory movements of the head and pelvis that resemble lameness in horses. ANIMALS 17 adult horses. PROCEDURE Kinematic evaluations were performed while horses trotted on a treadmill before and after shoe-induced lameness. Lameness was quantified and the affected limb determined by algorithms that measured asymmetry in vertical movement of the head and pelvis. Induced primary lameness and compensatory movements resembling lameness were assessed by the Friedman… CONTINUE READING
