What is equine massage therapy?
Massage is one of the oldest forms of physical therapy. Massage therapy is the non-diagnostic, non-invasive manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments) to enhance the muscular system. Massage is complementary to, but never a substitute to veterinary medicine.
Benefits of massage therapy for your horses.
- Improve range of movement and flexibility
- Reduce muscle tension and soreness
- Increase circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid
- Improve proprioception
- Improve posture
- Aid injury prevention
- Reduced fatigue and improve recovery time
- Improved performance
What is kinesiotaping?
Kinesiology tape is a stretchy athletic tape often used by physical and sports therapists. It sticks directly to the skin on people and to hair on animals, this results in a decompression effect on the skin causing an increase in circulation, pain reduction and provides support to the underlying structures in the given area.
Kinesiotaping is most effective when used in conjunction to manual therapy and should only be used as a stand alone therapy in special circumstances.
Benefits of kinesiotaping for your horses.
- Pain relief
- Reduce swelling
- Improved blood and lymphatic circulation
- Improved proprioception
- Support joint mobility
- Support muscle activity
What is vibration therapy?
Localised vibration therapy, more widely knows as Vibration therapy , uses vibration/oscilations at various frequencies to aid performance and recovery of athletes. One of the biggest enemies of any athlete, be it human or equine, is DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)
DOMS typically occurs 24-72hours after exercise. This type of soreness can severely effect athletic performance as well as making athletes more susceptible to injury due to compensation of other structures within the body. When muscles are sore the body tries to limit the use of the sore/ painful muscle to prevent further strain, thus leading to other muscles needing to compensate.
Vibration therapy is proven to increase blood flow to muscles to promote healing of fibers as allowing tissues to repair faster.
Treatment use cases
- Activating of the blood and lymph circulation
- Influencing the fascia and muscles
- Treating scars
- Post-treatment of muscle injuries
- Improvement of muscle function
What is dry needling?
Dry needling is a procedure where a filiform needle is inserted into a myofasical trigger point to relaxe the muscles, increase circulation, diminishes inflammation, and trigger a healing response. This treatment also improves nerve communication and activates the release of the bodies natural pain relievers.
This procedure can be carried out as part of your regular body work session or as a stand alone treatment to treat specific
What is Laser therapy/ photobiomodulation therapy?
The term laser is a acronym for:
Laser/ photobiomodulation therapy is the application of electromagnetic radiation within the red and infrared wavelength spectrum in order to stimulate healing and relieve pain
During application the amplified electromagnetic radiation is absorbed by the tissue. This stimulates the mitochondria in the cells to increase the production of ATP. Which in turn can accelerate healing and improve the repair, regeneration and remodeling of damaged tissues.
Addition benefits of Laser/Photobiomodulation therapy.
- Relieve pain
- Reduce inflammation
- Increased tensile strength of tendons/ ligaments
- Improve circulation
- Improve nerve function
Laser Therapy application cases.
Due to these benefits laser therapy is used to treat many disorders and injuries. Which may include but are not limited to:
- Superficial & depp tendon injuries
- Ligament Injuries
- Tendonitis & Bursitis
- Back Pain
- Hip Joint Disorders
- Stifle Disorders
- Degenerative Joint Disease
What is Red Light Therapy?
RL therapy uses low level light energy at red and near infrared wavelengths to stimulate cell metabolism. Its effects are similar to but not as strong as those of laser therapy. RL therapy is offered as part of your regular massage session if deemed necessary and is also available for purchase from our SHOP for at home use on both horses and dogs!
LT Therapy uses Include:
- Help manage arthritis and laminitis
- Improve healing of wounds
- Injury prevention
- Aid healing of wounds, cuts and scrapes
- Warm up muscles before work
- Alleviate tight muscles
- Reduce pain
- Decrease minor inflammation
- Increase circulation
