Whether you’re a commercial rehabilitation center or a private equestrian facility, having high-quality equine therapy equipment is essential.

Just like human athletes, horses who train hard are susceptible to injury. Equine therapy products provide an effective way to rehabilitate common sporting injuries such as muscle, tendon, ligament, and bone injuries. They can also facilitate a horse’s training regime and aid in reducing their risk of future injury.

ECB offers high-quality equine therapy products designed to optimize the rehab and recovery of your horses. Read below about the benefits each one can have for your horse.

Equine rehabilitation equipment

Rehabilitation is a critical stage of a horse’s return to training post-injury. After an initial period of inactivity, it’s important to get them active again as too much rest can cause atrophy in their muscles, cartilage, and ligaments. Following an appropriate rehab program will aid the healing process and re-strengthen muscles and tendons. Below are some of our equine rehabilitation products that allow you to execute equine rehabilitation safely and effectively.

Horse spas

Applying the concept of cold hosing but using a colder temperature, horse spas help rehabilitate lower limb injuries. This includes treating damage to lower limb tendons and ligaments, hoof injuries, arthritis, laminitis, and much more.

The cold water has an analgesic (pain relief) effect and reduces inflammation and swelling. Salts are also added to assist in the healing process, helping further reduce inflammation as well as ease joint pain and promote muscle relaxation.

Equine Water treadmills

Water treadmills are a great tool to use when exercise is being introduced again post-injury. Training on the treadmill is a low-impact way of strengthening the weakened tendons and ligaments – a lot softer than going on hard surfaces like asphalt or tarmac.

Water treadmills can also be incorporated into a healthy horse’s fitness program. You can increase the intensity of sessions by adjusting the incline or speed allowing it to gain fitness while minimizing the risk of injury due to less stress being placed on the tendons and ligaments. Furthermore, treadmills are a great alternative for when the horse can’t train outside due to adverse weather.

Localized cryotherapy

Cryotherapy works by exposing the skin’s surface temperature to extreme cold which induces physiological responses that aid in recovery and healing.

ECB’s INSTANTCRYO™ uses extreme cold and high pressure in treatments that last a minimum of 30 seconds and allow you to focus on a specific area of the horse that is injured such as the hoof, neck, or back, etc. Both INSTANTCRYO™ and the equine spa can complement each other and we have users leveraging both methods to enhance the rehabilitation of equine injuries.

In addition, cryotherapy treatments can be used on healthy horses to promote more efficient blood circulation, stimulate the lymphatic system, and increase mobility. Our users regularly provide whole-body cryo sessions on horses using the INSTANTCRYO™ device for maintenance and preventative care.
