|Abstract: ||Cervical vertebral instability is a disease of young, rapidly growing horses of any breed which results in dynamic compression of the cervical spinal cord causing weakness and ataxia in all four limbs. Nutritional, genetic, biomechanical, and traumatic factors may all contribute to the development of the disease. Surgical stabilization of the affected intervertebral joint is helpful in selected cases, with improvement evident in most horses within one year.|
