Does your horse’s tendon injury make you so dispirited? Walking and cooling endlessly with the possible prospect that this will take months and the uncertainty whether it will recover completely? Or do you have a horse in the (top) sport, which is very tense before training, and for sure before the competition. With as a result the riding is not going as well as could actually be?

Wouldn’t you be relieved if your horse is declared 100% healthy again? Happy if you can ride super every day and enthusiastic if you start again?

The moment a person or animal has an injury, there is a disruption at the cell level.
With an acute injury an inflammatory reaction takes place and with more chronic injuries the blood flow is reduced.

Pulsating magnetic field therapy, or often called short magnetic field therapy, can change months of forced rest and uncertainty about the result. Pulsating magnetic field therapy is a form of physiotherapy that you can easily apply yourself. The magnetic field therapy penetrates deep into the tissue and has an influence on the circulation and metabolism in the cells, so that the tissue recovers faster and better

the principle of pulsating magnetic field therapy for the treatment of various problems

Magnetic field therapy can be applied using “normal”, non-moving magnets that are placed in blankets or bandages. However, the effect of this is very limited.
Much more intensive and therefore more effective is the therapy in the form of pulsating magnetic fields.

Veterinarians and physiotherapists often apply magnetic field therapy in their practice. But also riders and owners   do a lot themselves  this form of therapy. Whether or not in consultation with a veterinarian or physiotherapist.

Pulsating magnetic field therapy gebruikt  uses coils through which an electric current flows. This causes a magnetic field. By having this current change direction with a certain frequency, we also get a magnetic field that constantly changes direction or pulses.

The frequency of the pulses determines the effect of the therapy.

We can with a low frequency reducing pain and inflammation  and by increasing the frequency we can at a later stage improve blood flow and metabolism. This helps the body heal faster.

Magnetic field therapy can therefore be used for a large number of problems, including:

  • Bone damage and fractures
  • Open wounds and circulation problems
  • Sore and stiff muscles
  • Tendon problems and other soft tissue problems
  • Acute inflammation
  • Chronic pain

As a (top) athlete  you can also use magnetic field therapy to keep your horse in optimum shape. After a heavy training or competition you treat your horse to help with the removal of the waste products. This makes your horse recover faster and has fewer problems stiffness   the next day.

The thermal images below are made from a horse with kissing spines and cramped lumbar muscles. The horse was treated for 40 minutes at the lowest frequency (2 Hz). It is good to see that despite the fact that the horse has stood up with a blanket during that time   the heat from the “hotspots” is clearly reduced

I use pulsating magnetic field therapy with regularity in our veterinary practice. And then I immediately put the emphasis on the pulsating magnetic field therapy, because I know that there are, for example, blankets with fixed magnets, but I see no point in that at all. I use the therapy especially with attachment problems of the tendons. I have the idea that it is analgesic and promotes healing. But I have also used it in other cases such as a hoof bone fracture. It works very practical and the owner can do it himself. In addition, I treat many sport horses that you cannot just give everything. This can be a nice support in the sport to remedy minor aches and pains. In rehabilitation, all kinds of devices pass by that should work well. Many of them also disappear quickly. However, I have been using this therapy for more than ten years and I keep coming back to it. That says enough.
