Interesting Mark, please link to the studies that show this. I'm serious (not being snotty)! In 10 years of studying veterinary medicine I haven't come across this at all so I'd love to learn more. I know there's more than whats in the books, but I have to see radiographic proof of this before I can tell my clients it is true.

Before/After radiographs presenting stem cell therapy results in a laminitic. While it's arguable as to whether the stem cell therapy or the trim/mechanics are responsible for the change, the point is the stabilization/realignment of the distal phalanx and reattachment of the interdital laminae.
