Dr. Andy :

Hello. This is a question way outside of what I believe any of the Experts of this site can properly answer without a physical examination, palpation of the leg, etc...

Dr. Andy :

If I were you Brian, well worth consulting a Equine Rehabilitation Specialist to see what physical therapy modalities would be indicated to help reduce inflammation and regain strength.

Dr. Andy :

The above is one example of a contact you can inquire with, and if they cannot help you directly, they may be able to direct you in the right direction.
