Thermography: More Than Just a Last Resort?

March 2014

Thermography, or infrared imaging, uses an infrared imaging and measurement camera to ‘see’ and ‘measure’ heat, or more precisely thermal energy, emitted from an object. While currently thermography is generally turned to as a last resort in difficult to diagnose cases, Jean Koek believes its greatest strength lies in helping identify the warning signs before they become health problems.

Equine Sacroiliac Joint Injury

July 2012

As an equine physiotherapist with a research background in the sacroiliac joint, I am often asked to treat horses that are suspected to have an injury in their sacroiliac joint region. Sacroiliac joint injury can be acute and/or traumatic, such as injury following a fall onto the pelvis, or from jumping out of racing barriers. The injury can be low-grade, or more chronic, sometimes resulting from ‘microdamage’ due to repetitive forces being transferred through the joint, as in dressage and show jumping.
