Electromagnetic Field Therapy for Horses

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy:
– Reduces pain, soreness and inflammation in the back, shoulders, hips, and
other areas subjected to stress or overuse.
– Dramatically decreases healing time of muscle, tendon, ligament and joint
– Increases circulation and oxygen to tissues.
– Rapidly removes waste products and toxins from tissues.
– Regenerates damaged tissues.
– Enhances the effects of other therapies.
– Greatly reduces the need for joint injections.
– Makes your horse happier and more willing to do things
Do you or your horse suffer from soreness in the back, from stiffness, arthritic conditions, ligament, tendon, muscle or bone injury, decreased range of motion or poor circulation?

• PEMF (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic  Field) Therapy is widely used on humans and to condition race horses at race tracks around the world.

• PEMF therapy regenerates damaged and diseased tissue, repairs torn tendons and fractured bones.

• PEMF  therapy enhances the synthesis of protein in the cells, allowing the body to take advantage of all the protein available.

• PEMF  therapy  improves circulation, not by increasing heartbeat or blood pressure, but by opening and dilating the arteries and capillaries. This also reduces edema (swelling).

• PEMF  therapy increases the cellular level of oxygen absorption. Studies have shown that oxygen partial pressure can be increased by 200%. This reduces pain associated with lack of sufficient oxygen. Also, insufficient oxygen in the cells causes lactic acid buildup under strenuous exercise.

• PEMF  therapy is  particularly effective in getting to deep muscle soreness because of its deep penetration.

• The body’s natural magnetic field. This is created by the flow of electrically charged ions in and out of cells and the transmission of electric impulses through cell membranes. Only Pulsed  Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) force and not static magnets can influence electrical changes on a cellular level within the body for cell metabolism to be influenced. In addition static magnets only create continuous low levels of magnetic induction.  The EquiPulse device delivers a very short duration, high intensity magnetic  pulse.   This results in a PEMF which penetrates completely through joints and muscles for a complete therapy!

• Time Needed for Therapy. The EquiPulse system only needs to be used for 10-20 minutes, per body part, each day. This means that, in the space of one day, you can use the one EquiPulse unit for all the horses and their riders in your barn.

•  Published, scientific studies abound for pulsed magnetic field therapy. PEMF has been FDA approved and widely used in the treatment of human delayed bone fractures for over a decade, and there is a growing body of literature concerning the biological and clinical effects of this energy.  A recent study using pulsed magnetic fields reminds us that in clinical studies done over 17 years, over  millions of patients have been treated safely with PEMF. Now you can use this therapy on YOURSELF and YOUR horses too!

The Equipulse Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy is currently in use by
Conejo Veterinary Hospital, Dr. MJ Martinelli of California Equine
Orthopedics, and an increasing number of large and small animal
