Stem Cell Therapy – Stem cell therapy is suitable for horses suffering from arthritis, tendon injury, or ligament injury.
IRAP – Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein therapy for the treatment of osteoarthritis in horses and cartilage damage.
PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma is a form of regenerative medicine that delivers a high concentration of growth factors to improve the healing process. PRP is used to treat a variety of conditions such as:
- Tendon Injuries (superficial or deep digital flexor tendon lesions)
- Ligament injuries (check & collateral ligament)
- Joint disease/Osteoarthritis
- Suspensory desmitis
- Meniscal tears
We use the Dechra Provet APC centrifugation system to get platelets, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory proteins from your own horse! Available at our hospital and at your farm/barn.
ESWT - Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a modern technology for treating musculoskeletal problems, soft-tissue, and bone injuries in horses. Shock wave is a noninvasive, high-energy sound wave treatment. Extracorporeal shockwaves stimulate healing by boosting circulation and encouraging the release of growth factors in the treated area. Shock wave therapy is used for treating conditions such as:
- Tendon and ligament injuries (Suspensory/Deep Digital Flexor Tendon)
- Bone (splints)
- Joint inflammation
- Navicular disease
- Wound healing
- Back pain/Kissing spines
Laser therapy - speeds up the healing process and enhances tissue remodeling, regeneration, and repair in horses. Laser therapy can be used for:
- Wound healing
- Pain relief
- Tendon/ligament injuries
- Muscle tears
- Neurologic injuries
