So it's been a little over 24 hours since Alex had his back injected. I would say he's 80% improved just from his non reactions to medium pressure. He does still have one spot where he is moderately sensitive (it was his worst spot) which I'm hoping will continue to improve.
Tomorrow we'll start back with some light lunging and see how he feels. My vet said I could lightly ride him on Friday, but I think I'm going to play it safe and lunge him a few days first while checking his back for soreness. I really hope this works, I've been ripping my hair out trying to get him comfortable.
Today I found that he had some "crud" on his withers/back and that made me feel like the worst horse mommy ever. Gonna have to get to work on that tomorrow when I can bathe him.
Now I have a question for my followers... I'm considering buying a Back On Track blanket (I think it's called a Back Blanket). I know some of you use BOT products. What do you think of them? Particularly interested in those that use them for back/muscle soreness. Worth the hype/price? Lay it on me! :-)
