Thermal imaging is a separate service to equine therapy and must be booked in advance. It requires that the horse is prepared correctly prior to images being taken, horse must be out of the sun for a certain time and dry to take accurate images. A history form must also be filled in.
The first treatment takes approximately 1 1/4 hour. The assessment procedure includes checking:
- for pain points and sore muscles
- the horses posture and how this will influence the way of going
- full range of movement of the joints of spine
- movement evaluation if suitable area.
- feeding of supplements and feeds
- saddle fitting
- work programme
- spinal adjustments
The Bioptron light is used to stimulate the bodies healing process and to release sore tight muscles when needed.
Massage, pressure points and release techniques are also used.
Treatments: Most horses need 2-3 treatments which are spaced one - two weeks apart. If the horse has a major injury more treatments will be required. Maintence treatments can also be scheduled every 4-9 weeks, or longer depending on your horse.
Equine thermal imaging can be done prior to treatment or on a separate day for an extra cost.
Even the small ones need treatment.
