He is the immediate past-president of the Texas VMA and an innovator in the area of myofascial pain and pain relief in canine patients.
We take a deep dive into compensatory muscle pain in the canine patient. So often we think of these dogs as bones and joints, and while bone and joint injuries are important they can lead to many compensatory muscle issues. Muscle pain and dysfunction are very under recognized issues with our canine athletes and one that too often goes undiagnosed and untreated.
We talk about identifying the issues and treatment options. If you have a dog that is having difficulty recovering from a surgery, looking to optimize performance after a surgery or have a dog with aches and pains and drugs just don’t seem to cut it, this episode is for you.
