Case Study: Superficial digital flexor tendinitis
As adjunct to veterinary treatment and any remedial farriery:
Physiotherapy will not always reduce the time the tendon takes to heal but aims to improve the quality of the healing of the lesion in the tendon and, by providing a controlled, progressive exercise programme, will produce a stronger, more efficiently moving horse by the time the tendon repairs. Hopefully this will help prevent the recurrence of the injury.
