Pulled Shoulder Muscle....
Okay guys, I need some advice. My friend's horse is 8 years old, and 17.2hh. He is a Shire/TB. For the last 4 months, he has been off with a pulled shoulder muscle, that once healed but it ceased (sp?) up... he also had a pulled chest muscle, which has been taken care of. My friend has a certain equine chiropractor who looks at him, and he is the one who says its the shoulder muscle pulled. It's been 4 months though..... sometimes he is okay, other times he is not... he is on stall rest, was been lightly ridden until about a week ago. He has had ice gel used, a messager used on him to release the muscles "knot". My friend is now using a hair dryer to warm it up, then message it out... but this takes a lot of work, a lot of pressure, and 2x daily EVERYDAY just to relax it... any other suggestions?
