Equine Magnetic therapy products or magnetic therapy is used routinely by horse owners and vets as a non-invasive way to treat aches and pains including arthritis and cold backs. The practice has been used for centuries in humans as well as animals.
Equine magnetic therapy products have become popular within the equine industry as more and more studies research the benefits of using magnets rather than using synthetic drugs in the search for pain relief including the general well being of the horse.
A number of brands including LeMieux, Horseware and Veradus have a range of innovative products using magnetic features, Magnetic rugs for horses has seen big growth over the last few years as a whole-body therapy treating cold back horses and general stiffness around the spine, for more general leg problems magnetic horse boots are the main item horse owners will choose due to the damage legs suffer during work and play, the magnets themself don't heal but create a magnetic energy that energises the electromagnetic properties within the cells of the body, this, in turn, speeds up the blood flow and the healing process.
Care should be taken using equine magnetic products due to the energy around the area being treated as this produces heat, a gradual introduction of the magnetic product will ensure the horse gets used to the stimulation being felt, If in any doubt about using magnetic therapy then seek manufactures advice or equine talk to your equine veterinary before proceeding.
