Sage is an aged gelding that sustained an injury to his shoulder in February. His veterinarian diagnosed him with Sweeney. Sweeney shoulder in horses occurs when there is damage to the suprascapular nerve that controls the Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus and Triceps muscles. Injury causes atrophy or “wasting away” of the muscles of the shoulder due to the nerve damage. Depending on the extent of the nerve damage, horses may also drag their toe.
Sage’s owner, Deb, contacted us for acupuncture and Magna Wave treatment. We Magna Waved Sage’s shoulder five times a week and treated with acupuncture twice weekly. After 3 days, Deb already noticed a difference in Sage’s gait. We are still treating Sage twice monthly with acupuncture and Magna Wave. His gait is back to normal and the damaged muscles are improving. Thank you Deb for your dedication to Sage and his recovery!
