The Use of Tui-na to Treat Facial Paralysis in a 6 Week Old Arabian Filly

by Antonio Alfaro DVM, CVA, CVTP, Costa Rica

A six week old Arabian filly injured herself while the handlers were taking her to the pasture and putting on the halter. She struggled with them and fell down sideways, fighting tremendously to get up in several attempts, while the handlers were holding her by the halter. The halter generated enough bruising into the nasal and facial crest skin area that it generated a compressive-tearing lesion over the tract of the facial nerve on the left side.
