Infra-Red (IR) Therapy and Solarium
IR therapy is provided under the solarium. IR is a form of heat radiation, which is gaining popularity as a safe method of natural health care and physiotherapy for horses. Heat energy penetrates thus stimulating blood circulation. This improves muscle elasticity - advantageous for injury recovery; also useful as a pre-exercise therapy to stave off injury and improve performance. Solariums help the horse recover faster after exercise as the stimulated circulation allows the muscle to absorb blood sugars more quickly. Stimulated circulation enhances food absorption for better digestion.
