During the war, horses have always been regarded as the reliable and trusty friends in battles. Nowadays, they are great companions of us for early morning trail riding. Needless to say, horses are the best friends of humans. Do you really take care of your friends?
Horses, whether they are cherished pets or the winning show horses, tend to experience injuries, stiffness and soreness quite often. To relieve the pain that horses endure, pulse electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy is a perfect treatment. In this blog, we will talk about using PEMF therapy to help horses recover from existing injuries and stay strong and high-performing.
What are the benefits of PEMF therapy for horses?
PEMF therapy can be used to reduce pain and inflammation, increase blood circulation, accelerate natural healing and promote tissue regeneration.
Some of the health conditions suffered by horses that may typically be treated by PEMF therapy include:
- Tendon and ligament injury
- Back pain
- Chronic hock soreness
- Non-union fractures
- Hoof abscesses
- Stone Bruises
- Non-healing wounds
PEMF therapy can be used not only to treat one specific condition but also for general health maintenance. By scheduling regular PEMF therapy for horses, we can protect them from injuries by strengthening the function of muscles and bones.
Why is PEMF therapy so effective for horses?
PEMF therapy has been used for several decades to help horses unwind and repair themselves to move toward an optimal state of health. In the 20th century, the use of PEMF therapy was restricted to animals in North America until recently. Veterinarians were the first health professionals to use PEMF therapy and usually used these magic devices to heal broken legs in racehorses. According to plenty of clinical trials, PEMF therapy is effective in the treatment and health maintenance of horses.
PEMF is an electrically charged magnetic field that is used to stimulate the cellular structure. The gentle magnetic fields produced by PEMF devices can induce the electrical current inside horse’s body. In this way, PEMF therapy helps to regulate blood flow, promote cell function, stimulate regeneration process, accelerate the absorption of nutrients, and remove the waste produced by damage and inflammation. PEMF therapy is a safe and non-invasive way to recharge horse’s body and enhance the body’s ability to heal itself naturally. In addition, there are no known side effects of PEMF therapy.
PEMF therapy has deep penetration which makes it effective in the treatment for horses. PEMF therapy for horses can help with problem areas not easily reached by other methods, including the poll, temporormandibular joint, upper neck, hamstring, and psoas muscle. Particularly, pulsed electromagnetic field has the ability to penetrate the hoof wall, promoting circulation not only in the laminae but also deep inside the hoof. PEMF therapy can gently yet effectively induce micro-circulation on the cellular level to force movement of ions, nutrients, oxygen, waste and fluid into and out of the cell. In addition to the physical stimulation on a cellular level, additional biochemical mechanisms are stimulated to increase the formation of macrophages to help further combat pathogens.
PEMF therapy proponents rely on physics to validate their belief in the healing action of magnets and will take you through a discussion of Faraday’s Law and the Hall effect. “The combination of the electromotive force, altered ionic pattern and the currents (caused by physical effects based on physics principles) causes blood-vessel dilation with a corresponding increase in blood flow,” stated by Dr. M. Porter in a 1997 article in Equine Vet Data.
Why choose MiraMate PEMF devices for horses?
Horses seem to instinctively know that PEMF therapy is good for them and tend to be attracted naturally. Currently, Big Magic and Mini Magic are two popular PEMF devices on the market.
For acute injuries, we recommend using Mini Magic. Mini Magic is designed for short time treatments, and thus can relieve the pain and swelling of damaged tissues quickly and effectively.
For chronic health conditions and overall health maintenance, Big Magic with a special PEMF mat is the best choice to help with the treatment of horses. The frequency of Big Magic is the Schumann main resonance of 7.83 Hz, which is a natural earth frequency and very safe for long-term treatments.
One of the best things you can do for your horses is PEMF therapy. PEMF therapy is also the key to achieving optimal performance and wellness in equestrian sports.
