Laser Therapy integrates biology and physics to accelerate healing at the cellular level. It is proven to encourage cellular regeneration, and improve blood flow to injured tissues.
CORE Therapies has a Class IV laser, which can be used to promote healing of external wounds, internal soft tissue injuries, or to stimulate acupuncture points for horses that are less tolerant of needles.
The laser treatments are tailored to the specific injury being treated; Duration, light wave frequency/amplitude, and number of sessions vary based on the injury/illness, as well as the individual horse.
PEMF stands for "Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field" Therapy. A PEMF device creates a focused magnetic field, which promotes health at a cellular level by stimulating cell metabolism.
This helps to increase blood flow to the area and increases the permeability of the cell wall. In doing so, nutrients and oxygen are readily absorbed, and proteins more efficiently metabolized for use within the cell and surrounding tissue.
This means that damaging toxins and cellular waste can exit the cell more efficiently, reducing pain and inflammation and encouraging healing. PEMF Therapy optimizes cell function and enhances the bodies natural ability to heal itself.
Iontophoresis is a type of therapy that uses electrical stimulation to deliver medication into the body through the skin, utilizing a low voltage gradient.
It helps reduce pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms, as well as helps manage scar tissue making it an ideal therapy for non-healing wounds, soft tissue injuries, and localized swelling.
