WHY SUPPORT THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM?
Joints enable structural (skeletal) movement; tendons and ligaments stabilize joints. Supporting the soft tissue (muscles, tendons and ligaments) helps to minimize the minor injuries (evidenced by swelling) before they become major issues leading to lameness problems.
Concussive forces on the feet will also cause bruising and edema. Check out AntiFlam™ specifically, to address recovery and body aches, especially in the back, joints, legs and feet.
Bruising can come from any number of sources: overwork, rough play, a kick, blunt force trauma (falls, accidents, etc.) and may or may not result in an obvious hematoma. Edema, on the other hand, is a swelling that may be caused by a number of issues.
Like human athletes, horses are subject to muscle,Tendon & Ligament Lamenessand injuries when they work hard, especially if they have not been properly conditioned for the work they are asked to do. These kinds of injuries are often a long process to heal (correctly) and rehabilitate.
