Tendon & Ligament Issues

Where tendon and ligament issues are concerned it is Important to note that in the acute phase the horse will need to be iced. Ice the leg and don't touch it with the therapy until the acute phase has passed.

When you are happy that the acute phase has passed, firstly you can bring down swelling, break down scar tissue and speed up the natural healing process by bringing blood to the affected area.

The easiest way to do this is by using the portable hand unit in the leg boot. Use this twice a day for around 5 minutes at a time, on a low to medium setting. Starting low and moving up to medium. The difference in speeding up healing process is fantastic.

During this process your horse may well be on box rest. During box rest the lymphatic system closes down and by using the pad everyday it will give your horse a cardiovascular workout which keeps the lymphatic system, lungs and muscles actually worked. So, when your horse comes back from injury, they will recover much quicker.
