Has anyone had a horse with a torn pectoral muscle? It turns out my lad has done exactly this God knows how, but the physio said, he probably did the splits in the field one day?!
The muscle has detached from the sternum, and has torn in the middle, where the right and left side would join. The physio did some laser treatment last night, and we'll be getting scans done this week, and she'll be coming once a week to do more laser treatment...
But I just wanted to hear if you've had any similar experiences of this? He's not lame at all, just in pain in his chest, and in his neck, where he is compensating for his chest.
I'd just like to know what to expect, i.e. recovery time, and if it will affect him in the future? I know all horses are different, but thought it may give me some reassurance or a heads up?!
...Also, please send lots of get well wishes to my boy I feel so bad for him
Thank you all!! x x x
