​​​Does my horse need treatment?


ANY horse can benefit from massage or a combination of therapies. You know your horse and know when something is "off".

  • Behavioral/training problems such as tossing head, pinning ears on transitions or when being cinched up, or bucking may be your horse's way of telling you "I'm in pain!".


  • Decreased performance-unable to travel in a frame, high headed and hollow-backed, disengaging the hindquarters, dropping legs over fences, refusal to pick up or maintain leads, lack of forward propulsion(short-striding), difficulty with lateral movements or bending, fatiguing quickly-can all be signs of pain or discomfort in the horse.


  • Rehabilitating from an injury-horses coming back into training after injury will especially benefit from treatment. When an injury occurs, the body reacts by putting the muscles around the injured area in spasm to "splint" the area in an effort to prevent further injury(this is a good thing). However, oftentimes after the injury has healed, the muscles are still in spasm. This induces compensatory ways of going in the horse that may aggravate the old injury or create new injuries. Massage, electro-stim and laser can get muscles out of spasm and clear the way for proper healing and way of going.


  • Preventative Maintenance-regular treatments are excellent for locating and eliminating potential problem areas. Recommended 1-3 times per month for horses in competition(depending on training/competition schedule), or every 1-4 months for lesson/riding horses.


*Equine Alternative Therapy is not a replacement for proper veterinary care-please call your vet for proper diagnosis of lameness/health issues.



How long is a therapy session?

 

Therapy sessions can be as long as 2 hours(full body sports massage) to as little as 20 minutes. Treatments that focus on a specific area, such as a wound or a specific area of the body, typically range between 20-45 minutes. Multiple protocols, i.e. massage, laser, and e-stim will take a little longer.


How often should my horse be seen?

 

This will vary on a case-by-case basis. For acute issues, such as a wound or injury, appointments may be several times a week, tapering off as the condition improves. For chronic issues, such as muscle or joint pain, appointments may be once a week or every other week. Maintenance massage is recommended 1-3 times per month for horses in training/competition.

 

My horse is competing regularly, when should he be seen?


It depends on the issue being addressed. Typically deep, full body massage work should be done at least 48-72 hours before your horse's competition(the horse may be a little sore after deep bodywork). More superficial treatment, however, can be done anytime-even the day of competition. Post event massage/therapy will also be very beneficial to the horse.
