One of the fastest growing areas of veterinary medicine is injury rehabilitation. Performance horses commonly experience sore muscles, tendons and joint fatigue from the rigors of training and competing but horses can also play in their paddocks or kick the walls of their neighbor’s stall causing injury. EPVP treats every horse individually and partners with owners and trainers to design a rehabilitation plan for your horse’s specific injury. Working with shockwave and laser therapy, we can stimulate the body to speed up the healing process. We also use acupuncture, cryotherapy, kinetic taping and specific exercises to keep the muscles strong and elastic throughout the rehabilitation process. This is all aimed at a faster healing time as well as insuring the tissue heals as correctly minimizing the development of scar tissue.
The goal is to get your competitor back in the ring as healthy, strong or better than before
