CONDITIONING/INJURY PREVENTION:

AQUA PACER

  • The Aqua Pacer above ground water treadmill allows the horse to exercise with minimum concussion and up to 60% buoyancy.
  • The speed of the treadmill and the depth of the water are controlled, which allows the therapist to target a specific injury or problem.
  • This therapy encourages full range of motion in joints and limbs.
  • The treadmill requires the horse to move both sides of his body equally, promoting healing and strengthening in an injured or weakened area.
  • The resistance of the water helps increase muscle strength.
  • The hydrostatic pressure of the water reduces swelling and inflammation in the legs.
  • The clear panel on the side of the machine allows the therapist to see all four legs, to assure that the desired results are being achieved.

LASER

  • Laser therapy helps reduce the pain associated with an injury.
  • Reduces swelling/ inflammation and speeds tissue repair, by stimulating vasodilation which result s in nutrients and oxygen to the injured area.
  • Increases collagen production and encourages the correct of alignment of the collagen fibers so tendons and ligaments will maintain their flexibility and reduce scar tissue.
  • Increases the production of joint fluid in order to help lubricate joints for easier movement

COLD SALTWATER LEG SPA

  • Immediate analgesic relief- pain relief due to the numbing effect of the 35 degree temperature salt water.
  • Reduces heat after the first treatment and each consecutive treatment lessens the heat returning to the injured area.
  • The extremely high salt concentration in the water acts as a poultice to draw out inflammation and infection from the wound or injury.  Once out of the leg spa, the circulatory systems sends maximum blood flow to warm up the legs, increasing oxygenation to the damaged areas and speeding up the healing process

SOLARIUMS-INFRA-RED LIGHT THERAPY

  • Great for muscle injuries, fitness/conditioning, and weak/injured backs(neck and hips) infra-red light penetrates 4-5 inches into the muscles producing cellular and blood vessel enlargement, increasing circulation and oxygenation and raising performance levels.
  • The solarium treatments helps get rid of skin eczemas, bacterial infections or fungus, increases excretion of toxins/waste products like lactic acids, increases the healing time of wounds and scar tissue, increases the resistance to germs and bacteria.
  • Horses receiving solarium treatments produce more Agglutinin and Interferon, proteins that increase the immune system ability to reduce influenza and cough.

MagnaWave/P3-ELECTROMAGNECTIC PULSE MACHINE

  • Electromagnetic waves stimulate deep muscle contraction creating a massaging effect and resulting in pain relief and muscle relaxation
  • Helps relieve muscle spasms
  • Increases circulation and oxygenation to muscle tissue
  • Improves performance
  • For joint disorders, pulsed therapy returns the natural regeneration capabilities and reactivates the cartilage and connective tissue to increase production of collagen and aid in the repair of the cartilage.

TRANSPIRATOR II AND EQUISILVER VETERINARY SOLUTION

  • The Transpirator II delivers pure water vapor (water in its gas state) into the entire respiratory tract, at a precisely controlled temperature. This 100% humidity penetrates into the entire lung, reaching the deepest and smallest airways.
  • Prevents airway heat and water loss and deposits a thin film of condensation on the walls of the respiratory tract. Retained water thins the mucous blanket, dissolves mucous plugs and helps expel the excess mucous and in most cases bacteria living in the lungs.
  • With the addition of Equisilver Veterinary Solution (Chelated Silver) which bonds with the water vapor, the number of treatments and duration of each treatment has been substantially reduced. The Equisilver is active against all types of micro-organisms, bacteria, fungi and viruses.
  • Especially beneficial to “Bleeders” by helping to repair and heal the airway passages.

SWIMMING

  • Will encourage full range of motion of joints and limbs for front limb injuries.
  • Allows for exercise with no concussion, but increases cardiovascular health.

EUROCISER

  • The Eurociser free walker exercises the horse at different speeds and directions while allowing them to carry themselves in a natural frame.

The diagnosis of any medical condition, including a determination of the health, fitness or soundness of an animal and the prescription or dispensing or administration of drugs or medicine for the treatment of any disease or condition will be done by licensed Florida Veterinarian.
