Horses and back pain
Is it possible that your horse is suffering from back pain?

The short answer to this question is yes. Just as humans can have back pain, so too can horses.

In this issue we look at back pain in horses, what causes it, and how your physiotherapist can help.

All the best,

The South African Society of Physiotherapy
