EQUINE WAVE THERAPY FAQ
HOW LONG HAS WAVE THERAPY AND EQUINE WAVE THERAPY BEEN USED OR AVAILABLE?
Wave Therapy was founded in 2012, and has been providing an avenue for wellness in both humans and animals ever since, however; the developer has been operating and continually providing services since 2004.
HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE?
Normal treatment time is 60 minutes. The optimum results have shown to be a 60 minute treatment every other day for 4 sessions total. This protocol has shown an incredible 86% success rate at increasing circulation and decreasing inflammation and pain.
CAN IT BE USED PRE-EVENT OR SHOW?
Yes, this is a completely non-invasive, drug free modality for increasing circulation and decreasing inflammation. It is our belief that a series of treatments prior an event would be most beneficial; however, it is always the owner and the trainer’s discretion. Since it is completely drug free it will not put the horse or rider in jeopardy of any disqualification if used at or during the event.
WHEN CAN THE HORSE BE WORKED AFTER TREATMENT?
Immediately, there is no recovery time. Results are more common to show the day following a treatment and will continue to be effective for a longer time dependent upon the injury being treated.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
Depending upon the level of injury or stress to the horse, results can last a day or weeks depending on the problem. In a normal situation one or two treatments per week is normally sufficient. Once an injury is identified and treated, recovery is enhanced through the natural process of enhanced circulation and reduction in inflammation.
WHY TREAT THE WHOLE BODY WHEN THE PROBLEM IS IN ONE AREA?
Here is where Equine Wave Therapy is different than that of any other modality available. By increasing the circulation, blood oxygens and associated chemicals, such as Nitric Oxides, are stimulating the whole body of the horse. In many cases it releases tightness and swelling in areas that may not be apparent, thus providing relieve to the entire horse.
IS IT THE SAME AS OTHER MODES OF THERAPY?
While the therapy is similar, the difference provided by EQUINE WAVE THERAPY is in the total body of the horse bathed with non-invasive energy and which causes a natural increase in circulation and a reduction in inflammation rather than smaller, more specific areas that other machines focus on.
WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS DURING A TREATMENT?
As the circulation of the blood is increased, the blood oxygen and related chemicals such as nitric oxide is increased, the lymphatic system is stimulated. This process reduces pain and inflammation and promotes healing.
