Many horse owners, trainers, riders, and veterinarians know the physiological benefits of equine PEMF, but there are also psychological benefits of PEMF therapy for horses. Your horse isn’t concerned with the science behind pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, but one thing is certain. Horses love PEMF therapy!
How does PEMF therapy work?
You may already be familiar with pulsed electromagnetic field therapy. PEMF machines are commonplace in barns and stables. You often see them at rodeos, and many equine vets offer PEMF therapy for horses.
PEMF systems use waves of low frequency electromagnetic fields to provide a wide range of health benefits for horses. PEMF machines send electricity to metal coils which generate EMFs. These electromagnetic fields penetrate the cells of the body. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy improves oxygenation of the cells and increases blood flow, which stimulates cell recovery and healthy cell function.
Why do horses enjoy PEMF therapy?
Many animals – including horses – are naturally drawn to PEMF coils. Horses remain calm while ropes or loops are being used, and they stand on hoof boxes without hesitation.
The EMFs used in pulsed electromagnetic field therapy are quite similar to the earth’s naturally occurring magnetic field. Horses find the gentle EMF pulses very soothing and relaxing.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is sometimes described as cellular exercise or as a massage for the cells. The cells in the horse’s body engage when the EMF is active and relax in between the pulses. The process is enjoyable, it’s relaxing, and it helps horses feel better faster.
PEMF therapy helps horses feel better by speeding up healing and recovery times. Imagine that your muscles are constantly stiff and sore, or you have a stubborn injury that won’t heal. You’re going to be in a foul mood; horses feel the same way. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy relieves pain, stiffness, swelling, and inflammation, and promotes faster healing and recovery.
PEMF therapy is approved by the FDA to treat anxiety and depression in humans, and it helps horses feel better, as well.
