Laser therapy is an integral part of physiotherapy treatment and is used in most of cases. It is highly effective at reducing inflammation which gives it a wide range of applications including arthritis, soft tissue injuries and joint/spinal conditions.
In order for healing to happen inflammation must be treated so the following stages of recovery can ensue. For instance, if a joint remains hot and painful the animal will not use the limb and muscle gain and range of motion won’t be restored. If the joint or tissue is free from pain then the animal will more freely use their affected body part.

The Hwave is a powerful machine and applied correctly can be highly effective in treating pain and restore function. Mainly used on horses, but also tolerated by dogs, it has been used as an integral part of kissing spine, sacroiliac joint and spinal rehabilitation. On top of treating clinical conditions, it also helps to maintain optimal pelvic and spinal function in performance horses and can reach to a deeper level than just hands on therapy alone. Hwave treatment is available in all equine appointments at no additional cost.
