Equine cryotherapy is an original, analgesic and analgesic technique, easy to use in horses and well tolerated by animals.
Cryotherapy acts on the blood circulation passing from the state of vasoconstriction to the state of vasodilation thanks to the thermal shock that the animal undergoes. This thermal shock is produced in the CryoJump using the transformed nitrogen bath, and released in the chamber provided for this purpose.
Following the example of the process used on the human body and thanks to this thermal shock, the body of the animal will be in a situation of stress and thus release the effects of an anti-inflammatory, relaxant or analgesic nature because the metabolism of the animal allowed to secrete endorphins. This method is also effective on locomotor pathologies, back pain, arthritis, hematomas and others. With tendonitis, for example, the cold will stop the inflammatory process, limit edema, and the associated stiffness.
After a major effort, during training or after competitions, the joints, muscles or tendons of the horse may suffer from slight injuries, tears or lesions. The cold allows for better tissue regeneration and immediately reduces inflammation.
The first results are obtained quickly and are clinically observable.
The physical recovery by the horse is extremely faster. This technique is gradually starting to develop in clinics and rehabilitation and fitness centers. Today, even some equestrian centers have already tested it.
Some types of pathologies treated
- Tendinopathy (lameness): immediately relieves pain
- Inflammation of the ligaments: stops the inflammatory crisis
- Hematomas and edemas: drains hematomas and edemas thanks to the vasomotor effect
- Muscle contracture (back pain): immediate muscle relaxation
