Lameness in horses usually occurs because of a structural or functional disorder in the limbs, neck or trunk.
Lameness is a sign of pain, body mechanical issues, or a combination of both.
If osteosclerosis, ringbone, articular chip fracture or calcium deposits plague your horse, Bone Stasis provides relief.
Bone Stasis: Western Medicine Uses
Bone Stasis is a Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) herbal blend specifically formulated for swelling, bone spurs, and calcifications.
Even though Bone Stasis is a TCVM herb, it still helps with symptoms of some Western diagnoses.
Bone Stasis improves the following Western diagnoses:
- Calcium deposits
- Bone spurs, chips, and swelling
- Osteophytes and osteosclerosis
- Degenerative bone disorders.
Bone Stasis: Eastern Medicine Uses
Eastern medicine treats a disease’s root causes rather than symptoms.
Accordingly, TCVM requires a different evaluation process than Western veterinary medicine.
TCVM vets look for signs of imbalance.
Bone Stasis balances a horse with the following TCVM signs:
- A fast, tense, wiry pulse
- Bone stasis and stagnation (stagnation can also affect muscles, tendons, and ligaments)
- A purple tongue.
How Bone Stasis Treats Lameness in Horses
The herbs perform synergistically, balancing systems and meridians in the body.
Bone Stasis addresses the underlying causes of your horse’s illness or disease.
The underlying cause of any disease is always some type of imbalance.
Bone Stasis alleviates your horse’s imbalances and soothes the painful symptoms of illness and disease at the same time.
The Traditional Chinese Medicine actions of Bone Stasis are:
- breaking down Stasis
- activating Blood
- clearing channel blockage
- relieving pain.
