Wounds & Skin Problems

WOUND HEALING:

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY

  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the oxygen levels in the horses body 12-15 times the normal amount.
  • The increased pressure causes the oxygen to dissolve into the plasma, which allows it to diffuse into the tissue better.
  • This elevated oxygen saturation stimulates the turnover of cells, increases blood supply, kills bacteria, enhances the effects of antibiotics, reduces swelling, salvages damaged tissue and bone, stimulates collagen production and improves skin growth.

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.
  • After coming 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

PEGASUS LASER

  • Laser therapy helps reduce the pain associated with an injury.
  • Reduces swelling/ inflammation and speeds tissue repair, by stimulating vasodilatation 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

SOLARIUMS-INFRA-RED LIGHT THERAPY

  • 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.

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,
