Girthy Behaviour in Horses and Myofascial Trigger Points
If you are interested in my research project please email me to request a copy of the full text journal article.
- Myofascial trigger points are common in the transverse and posterior pectoral muscles.
- Horses with an owner-reported history of girth-aversion behaviour had more reactive myofascial trigger points on palpation.
- Knowledge of the presence and location of myofascial trigger points will assist in the development of prevention and management strategies.
