A measurement according to the pain protocol, to find out whether the horse has pain in the body, and where does the horse have pain?
The pain protocol is a questionnaire in which the entire anatomy of the horse is measured for pain in a structured order.
The questions we answer are:
• Where does the horse have pain? (head, legs, back, vertebrae, bones, joints, muscles, tendons)
• To what extent is the horse in pain? (acute, chronic, pain shoot)
• Where does the pain come from? (saddle, training, trauma)
• Can it be remedied and how? (treatment, training)
• Does the horse have any diseases or abnormalities? (EORTH, Kissing spines, osteoarthritis)
The result of the measurement according to the pain protocol is an indication or guideline of what may be wrong in the body of the horse or pony. It is very useful as an indication of the pain points when you want to have the horse treated by a therapist or to identify causes of problems such as lameness or the horse does not want to move/workout.
You can also use it to check the physical condition of the horse or to find out what the improvements can be for training, or as an indication whether the horse is ready for treatment again.
The pain protocol was developed by The horse complete team and prepared with the help of Osteopaths and Physiotherapists. The horse is measured remotely with a Biotensor based on the data provided. The pain protocol is not a diagnostic tool, but an indication and we are not responsible for the way in which this information is used after our advice. We are not a vet and if you have serious problems with the horse, we refer you to a therapist or vet. Nor can we be held responsible for the effect of treatments or examinations based on the results of the pain protocol.
