PEMF for Equine Athletes

Equine PEMF therapy — pulsed electromagnetic field therapy — has been keeping equine athletes happy for decades in the United States. Beginning with racehorses and moving on to show stock and other horses, PEMF therapy has become the standard treatment for these valuable animals.

We know that horses LOVE this therapy! PEMF therapy is so relaxing for horses that they often fall asleep during treatment.

We also know that trainers and horse owners see significant results from equine PEMF therapy:

  • Reduced recovery time
  • Reduction in pain and swelling
  • Better performance
  • Longer athletic career

What is PEMF?

PEMF therapy sends an electromagnetic pulse through the body. This pulse is able to penetrate deep into the tissues, where it charges cells and stimulates the body’s natural healing processes. It’s non-invasive and completely safe. The level of energy is comparable to the normal electromagnetic field of the earth. Read more about the science behind PEMF.

Review of pulsing electromagnetic field therapy and its possible application to horses by J.A. Auer, G.E. Burch, and P. Hall, published in Equine Veterinary Journal, examined published research and two case studies. “Pulsing electromagnetic fields influence cell functions,” the authors concluded. They had a lot more to say, but it comes down to this: PEMF therapy is safe and effective for horses.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has also certified the use of PEMF therapy with humans and animals. The FDA approves PEMF therapy for a number of different uses, including help with healing bone fractures, treatment of pain without medication, and more.
