Fairfield Equine offers a variety of cutting edge therapeutic services for commonly seen sport horse injuries and preventative care methods.
FES is the application of computer regulated electrical impulses to the skin in a waveform that mimics the motor neuron signal the brain sends to the muscle to cause a contraction. FES has the ability to treat both muscle spasm and muscle atrophy and feels like a deep muscle massage. Treatments do not require sedation and horses can be ridden shortly after in most instances.
Laser Therapy can accelerate healing and improve the repair, regeneration and remodeling of tissue in the horses.
Our class IV high intensity laser delivers photon energy directly to tissues, increasing circulation and exciting the energy carrier of the cell (ATP).
This rapidly increases the cellular metabolism in the treatment area.
Some uses for laser therapy are wound healing, pain management, tendon/ligament injuries, muscle tears, neurologic injuries and stimulation of acupuncture points.
Some benefits of laser therapy are decreased pain, increased wound healing, decreased inflammation, increased tensile strength of tendon/ligament and a return to function.
MagnaWave sends a pulsating electromagnetic charge through tissues to promote oxygenation and increase cellular metabolism.
Penetration of the charge provides energy to large or focal areas such as joints and major muscle groups.
Twitching muscles help to identify imbalances, pain or sore muscles that need to be further worked on with MagnaWave.
Owners and trainers can generally see and feel an improvement in the way the horse moves after several sessions.
