Bias is the inability to see.
We as humans, thanks to the way our brains work, always incorporate new information relative to a pre-existing framework of notions we have on a topic. Ie, we "fit" new information to please, or get along with, our pre-existing thoughts.
This is a major limitation for medical and scientific advancements for all species, because all extant highly developed organizations are nothing but bias. An existing informational structure is already out of date the minute it is formed, because it is formed on precepts of the past. This blocks people's ability to evaluate the value of new information if there is conflict with old information.
A subluxation may have different meanings, depending on the medical specialty involved. It implies the presence of an incomplete or partial dislocation of a joint or organ.[a]The World Health Organization (WHO) defines both the medical subluxation and the chiropractic subluxation. It contrasts the two and states in a footnote that a medical subluxation is a "significant structural displacement, and therefore visible on static imaging studies."
Hmmmm, significant structural displacement, and therefore visible on static imaging studies (oh, like photography and XRay).

Do you want sound horses?
The first step :This needs better documentation and I would love to do just that. We are looking at statistical averages in stance which requires intensive imagery of individuals and multiple case studies. We also need much more motion analysis.
The second step: Perform the LINT - OFM (least invasive trim based on optimal feral modeling as I conduct it) and compare with outcomes with common care practices in laminitis, navicular and non-medical cases (healthy control individuals) over long periods of time. And I would love to do just this as well. This requires cooperation with the equine veterinary community at large and research dollars.
