- What Is the Best Way to Handle Sore or Strained Finger Tendons??

- What is the best way to treat a bowed tendon??
- Q: My horse bowed a tendon not too long ago. It’s a high bow, he’s very sore on it but it’s not swollen anymore. He spends most of his time in a huge pasture and goes on a trail ride once a week…he was not injured while being worked. It happened on the 4th of July so I think he got spooked by fireworks. Since the injury he has not been ridden at all and has been going out in a very small pasture by himself so he doesn’t get all worked up with his friends. Everything I read about bowed tendons says that it takes 6 months to a year of stall rest. I don’t think it’s in his best interest to stand in his stall because he needs to walk off some of his energy…this is why he’s been turned out in a small pasture. He also is not a show horse so even if I started riding him again at some point it would be a very light trail ride. I want what’s best for my horse not for myself. I like a happy horse =] What are your suggestions??Gallop…I do have a vet coming out…I am just getting opinions on here…and I didn’t say that I don’t agree w/ what I read, what I read is always about show horses who do alot of work. There is no reason to be rude to someone who is just wondering how other people have handled the situation. It could be said that it’s rude of you to assume that I am not seeking the advice of a vet and that I am going to do exactly what strangers tell me. Have a great day.
- A: Rest, rest, and more rest. Tendons/ligaments take a LONG time to heal. I know this is frustrating but you just have to let it rest. I don’t necessarily think he needs to be kept in a stall, but I would try to keep him from running and bucking and whatnot as much as possible. If you don’t, it will not heal properly and will bother him for the rest of his life. It is better to be patient now than to deal with it forever.Remember that that particular muscle will always be weaker in the future. I would suggest always giving your horse extra support then riding, to help keep it from happening again. I have a mare who had a bowed tendon about 10 years ago. She was given plenty of time to heal, and now I always ride her with SMBs, not matter how short/easy the ride, and I’ve never had a problem with that tendon again (knock on wood).

- Q: This has been going on for a year, I’ve become very inflexible, I was treated for frozen shoulder in my right shoulder over the last year and now my left shoulder is showing similar symthoms.

- A: I am not a real Doctor just play one on Yahoo answers. Of course you will want to see a doctor about this. I know a couple of people that have the same symptoms you do and they have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Does it get better when you are more active and also with exercise?
