Our Equine Treatments

K - Laser Therapy

K-Laser Class IV therapeutic lasers deliver specific red and nera-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photo-chemical reaction and therapeutic effect

During each painless treatment, lasers increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain, as the area the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is resolved.

Is your horse suffering from common conditions like, kissing spines, hock OA, locking patellas, etc.? K-laser can help manage these conditions and possibly increase veterinary management intervals.

At Equine physio and laser your Equine not only has access to the brand new and worlds most powerful K-Laser CUBE 4 but also the option of integrating it with physiotherapy at the same visit.

Physiotherapy

Manual therapy

Manual therapy is an effective treatment for joints and muscles that are restricted and lack adequate mobility and range of motion. Manual therapy helps to restore mobility to these restricted joints to help relieve joint stiffness and decrease muscle tension, thereby helping the patient to resume a more natural movement pattern.

Manual therapy can be quite effective for treating both acute and chronic pain.

Optimal benefit is seen when manual therapy is used in conjunction with other therapies such as ice, heat, electrotherapy and/or exercise prescription.

Manual therapies include various techniques such as soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilisations, myofascial release and massag. (including trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, etc.)

Benefits include

* Relaxation

* Break up scar tissue adhesions,

* Increase circulation

* Relieve pain

* Restoring joint mobility

* Improve movement

Electrotherapy

TENS- Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation – used for pain relief

NMES- Neuromuscular electrical stimulation – electrical stimulation of muscle or tissue via an intact nerve

EMS-Electrical muscle stimulation – direct stimulation of a denervated muscle via its muscle fibers.

Exercise rehabilitation

Exercise rehabilitation

Focuses on strengthening, core activation, proprioception training, stretching. Can include a lunging program, schooling exercises, pole work exercises, long-lining and ground work exercises

Kinesiotape

Is commonly used by athletes and can be extremely beneficial to your Equine athlete. They are athletes afterall.

It can aid in conditions like kissing spines, tendon injuries, lymphangitis, improve joint movement/muscle function, increase circulation and decrease muscular pain.

It can be used to deactivate or activate an area dependant on how it is applied to the body.

It helps increase blood circulation and proprioception to the area which, may decrease pain and create more awareness of the area that is taped.

It works great on horses with a summer coat or those who have been clipped. We do have a spray that helps stick the tape to the body enabling it to last longer.

K-tape can be kept on for as long as 5-6 days depending on what your physiotherapist has advised.
