Hydro~Horse Therapy

Our Star Treatment for both rehabilitation and fitness programs is effective in treating bowed tendons, pulled suspensory ligaments, splints, bucked shins, saucer fractures, joint injuries, post surgical recovery and many other conditions. In addition, use of Hydro~Horse Therapy adds significant tone and conditioning to the back and stifle muscles and forms the cornerstone of a low-stress fitness program for horses that need to attain or maintain competitive condition. The underwater treadmill builds muscles and cardiovascular strength in a partially buoyant environment that reduces stress and concussion by up to 60 percent.The horse exercises in a controlled environment, in a straight line on a flat surface, using its normal gait, with full range of motion and the same muscles that it uses on traditional surfaces.

Unlike swimming, which uses a different set of muscles and does not replicate the workout that the horse receives on land, Hydro~Horse Therapy Pool builds topline and leg muscles with the added benefits of the therapeutic effects of the warm water and the Jacuzzi jet a horse can get.

Equi-Vibe

Adapted from human sports medicine and rehabilitation, whole body vibration therapy (EquiVibe) has been used to stimulate blood circulation and provides both physical training and a massage at once. The result is a notable improvement in blood circulation, especially in the legs. It can be used for maintenance, training and injury prevention or rehabilitation, and has shown to shorten recovery times in soft tissue, bone and hoof problems as well as helping prevent colic, which makes it very useful in the treatment of horses on stall rest. It is especially successful with suspensory injuries and has had some promising results with navicular disease and even laminitis. Preliminary veterinary research shows it to also increase bone density and improves back musculature as well as improving hoof quality. Clinically it helps with muscle and joint soreness and makes the horses looser and more supple. It is non-invasive, very safe, and easy to integrate into any daily training routine. Here at Equine Spa & Wellness Center we use this in conjunction with our Hydro~Horse Therapy and see great results.
