2MT - Case Study - Super Fast Used to Correct Limb Deformities

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share another case study with you all.  This one deals with a 5 month old colt who had a lot of leg deformities.  He had contracted tendons and was back in the knees due to over feeding his mother while she was carrying him.  He was also high on the outside heel and that was turning it outward.

When I was called out to work on him, I knew that I needed to raise the inside of the toe to even out the height difference.  So I used Super Fast to build the toe up on the inside.  Then I built in a toe wedge in order to try to pull the deep flexor down the leg.  He had clubbed feet as well and the vet was trying to avoid surgery.  I did what I could to help.  Using Superfast again, I added a lateral extension to help put the foot more under the leg.  You can see the before and after pictures in these photos.

Do you have a similar case you would like to ask questions about? If so, please feel free to email me!

Below is a video showing how to use Superfast for other kinds of applications, check it out if you'd like.

Thank you for your time!
