Muscle recovery is one the most efficient and effective ways to avoid injuries and minimize risk. Muscle recovery is a great way to help your horse develop muscles, work better and be more flexible.Horses are athletes, and require a lot muscle care.

PEMF stands for Pulsed EMF Therapy. The PEMF device generates a pulsing electromagnetic fields within the tubes that look like hoses. This helps horses to recover at cellular levels by stimulating their metabolism. The magnetic field pushes red blood cells towards areas that are inflamed or injured by bringing more oxygen to them.

What are the advantages of PEMF?

Although PEMF might seem new, especially in the USA. It has been around for more than 50 years in Europe. Although PEMF is well-known at racetracks, slowly PEMF has been adopted by more sport horses and leisure horses.

More than 2000 studies have demonstrated that PEMF can aid injury recovery, reduce inflammation and ease tightness, make horses more flexible, and speed up their recovery from hard training.

There have been no adverse reactions reported so PEMF is very safe for horses!

Is there any downside to PEMF for horses?

PEMF for horses uses electromagnetic fields that are created by a specially designed machine. Your horse’s well-being and health are not at risk if the PEFM machine has been used correctly.

This is one reason why PEMF for horses has such a positive effect – there will be no adverse effects.

What can I do for my horse?

Many PEMF practitioners are available in Europe, the USA, and around the globe. It is easy to find a professional who can come to your farm to treat your horse. The treatment takes approximately 30-45 minutes and can be repeated as many times as necessary.

You can still train as normal. The treatment can be done immediately or right after. PEMF for horses can be used in conjunction with massages or chiropractic treatments.

I’m Allison, born and raised in San Diego California, the earliest memory I have with horses was at my grandfather’s farm. I used to sit at the stable as a kid and hang out with my Papa while he was training the horses. When I was invited to watch a horse riding competition, I got so fascinated with riding!
