Lameness and Sports Medicine

Our orthopaedics team, led by board certified specialist in Equine Sports Medicine, Egbert Willems, offers full lameness, poor performance and sports medicine investigations to include spinal injuries of the neck, back and pelvis. We offer a full range of regenerative medicine such as

  • Shockwave therapy
  • Class IV laser
  • Mesotherapy
  • PRP
  • IRAP and stem cell treatment

We work closely with farriers, physiotherapists, and other musculoskeletal practitioners to ensure a holistic approach.

After an initial assessment at your yard our vets may advise further investigation at our hospital facilities in Laughton, Lewes. Our facilities and equipment at the hospital mean we can offer more comprehensive investigations in-house. Some investigations can take longer than one day therefore it might be necessary for your horse to stay with us overnight to complete a diagnosis and/ or treatment.

Our team of vets start each morning with ward rounds, discussing new and ongoing cases, which allows professional sharing and helps us to design the best possible plan of treatment. Our veterinary and nursing team will keep you informed of your horses’ condition and progress throughout their stay with us and detailed discharge instructions will be given.

Cliffe Equine Lameness Packages

We are all familiar with the current financial climate and for a lot of us, the requirement to tighten our belts. 


Unexpected vets fees can arise should your horse go lame, and we understand that having a more specific idea of pricing is key. 


In light of this, we are now offering lameness packages to help give a clearer idea of the cost of lameness workups. Available to all clients, each lameness package will include different levels of investigation, depending on requirement. 


To find out more about the packages we offer, call the team on 01323 815120, or email us at 


Please note, T&Cs apply and appointments are to be paid on booking.
