Objective Summary

1. To identify the magnitude and direction of motion available in both clinically normal and diseased equine sacoiliac joints 2. Correlate clinical signs force plate analysis and three dimensional kinematics in horses affected by sacroiliac disease 3. To develop more effective intervention for the management of sacroiliac disease in the horse based on the kinematic data
