Did you ever tried mesotherapy for arthritis or back diseases?

Did you ever tried mesotherapy for arthritis or back diseases?
I did once on the recommendation of my vet. He was just coming back into work after back issues but wouldn't work properly over his back due to no muscle there from where it had been sore. It really helped and he felt so much more comfortable, so by the time it was no longer having an affect, he was back in full work and was so much stronger through his back as he had been using and developing the muscles there!
As Ian said, it's a temporary solutions but I think it can be useful. For example, to release a horse from pain for some time in order to build him a good back. I think it depends on the horse, it has to be used on case-by-case basis :)
Hi :) Personally I won't use it on my horse. For me, it's a temporary solution, the effects won't last forever, and the more you use it, the less it will last... The results are superficial.
I rather use massages, stretching,... it lasts longer and the results are real !
Hello Cassie ! I didn't try but my trainer did on her 9 years old horse who suffered from a bad back. It helped him, he doesn't seem to suffer anymore. But, in order to be efficient, the treatment had to be made several times, I think that it's the key of the success of this kind of medication.

Every horse is different so I guess it really depends on the horse and the disease :)
