My five-year-old mare has been diagnosed with dorsal spinal process impingements or ‘kissing spines’ and osteoarthritis of two facet joints. She’s been having shockwave therapy and may have to have corticosteroid injections too. I’m very concerned for her future as she’s dragging her right hind toe badly and I’m not really sure how effective the treatment will be.
