Unhappy Curb??

My friends QH mare recently stumbled and acquired a curb on the back of her hock. I was wondering if anyone had experience with this and what are their options as far as speeding up the healing process. I have heard of them getting froze and cortisone injections. Can you use DMSO or blister it?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I understand that a curb is an inflammation of the back of the leg. I would assume that the best thing to do would be give it time to heal.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yea she has been turned out for like a month a know with no one working her. She still seems pretty sore. Anyone have any ideas how long they typically take to heal?

A curb is a sprained ligament , I presume your friend has consulted a vet for a proper diagnosis. The time to heal depends on how severe the sprain is - she may go sound and still have the swelling. Rest is needed.
