Webinar Mini Series – Trigeminal-Mediated Headshaking (Recorded November 2020)


Treatment Options

Veronica Roberts' headshaking research is widely recognised as world leading. In this webinar she reviews the anatomy and function of the trigeminal nerve, how these relate to trigeminal-mediated headshaking, the principles underlaying various methods of treatment and the challenges to objective assessment of any response to treatment. She then summarises the efficacy and limitations of the published treatment options and considers the potentials of future developments.

What, why, who & how to make a diagnosis

European Specialist in Equine Internal Medicine, Veronica Roberts considers how to approach the horse presented for the reason of headshaking in a complete and logical manner and reviews the means for achieving the most accurate diagnosis. She further discusses the limitations of the techniques currently available and how diagnostic protocols might be further developed in the future.
