Tibia Meniscus

The tibia rests between the stifle and hock joints. This long bone is surrounded on three sides by muscle groups that allow flexion and extension of the distal limb. Horses with tibial injuries present with a wide range of symptoms: from acute, non-weight bearing lameness to poor athletic performance. The most common causes of tibial injury include fractures, meniscal tears, rupture of the peroneus tertius, and tenosynovitis of the deep flexor tendon sheath.
