PEMF Is For Horses, Too


2019/10/02



By Link Casey

What is PEMFPulsating Electro Magnetic Field. It is a therapy that uses electromagnetic fields in an attempt to heal injuries.

It has become very popular within the horse industry. Veterinarians were the first health professionals to use PEMF therapy, usually to attempt to heal broken legs in racehorses.

It is used on humans, small and large animals, used by doctors, chiropractors, veterinarians, and now by farriers.

We were introduced to Magnetic Therapy back in 2000 and demonstrated its use at clinics and conventions for farrier and owners alike for many years.

In the last ten years, the Magna Wave Equine Wellness Technology Company has been designing and representing their new system of PULSE fields that you can actually observe and feel as the magnetic field hovers over the body.
Here are their findings:

Anything that disrupts the body’s own natural magnetic fields impairs cell metabolism, which contributes to cell dysfunction. The Magnetic Fieldhelps to speed up cell metabolism by improving oxygenation of the blood stream. 

PEMF stimulates cell metabolism causing a chain of responses in the body leading to improved health.

PEMF works to improve circulation and cell metabolism.

PEMF helps horses by:

General overall relaxation and increased range of motion, allowing the horse to stretch out their hind quarters, necks, and front limbs. It is easier for the owner in conditioning the horse before and after events, just simple riding, and it can be used help the horse prepare for the farrier’s services.

There is an apparent relaxing of the vascular system within minutes of completing the session (10-20 minutes) which could serve to drop or improve blood pressure.

PEMF promotes:

·Calm and relaxed attitude while relaxing muscles
·Increased circulation     
·Improved energy
·Arthritis relief and inflammation reduction
·Stimulates hoof growth and can bring a hoof abscess to the surface.
·Boosts cellular metabolism by regenerating blood cells

The unit by the Magna Wave Company is the unit we use at Farriers’ National Research Center. We included it in the Equine Flexion Therapy courses with Instructor Dan Marcum. Dan is a certified PEMF expert with the Magna Wave Company.  

The next Equine Flexion Therapy course is October 16-18, 2019. To make an appointment, contact Casey & Son Horse Horseshoeing School and Farriers’ National Research Center at 706-397-8909. Or visit the website www.caseyhorseshoeing.com
