Therapy Services – Specialities

To be successful in the horseracing industry, an Equine Athlete must be sound enough to meet the demands of training and competition. The Principle of Overload is a critical component for strength and endurance, but the success of a training program and a horse’s fitness level are contingent upon the soundness of the horse. The Equine Athletic body will begin to break down when it is overused, under-recovered, or injured. Then microtears or adhesions in soft tissues occur and can lead to a loss of flexibility, range of motion, joint mobility, muscle endurance, and fluidity of gait. Horses protect themselves when responding to pain and compensate for weaknesses, tightness, or structural irregularities. Over time compensation patterns trigger protective gaits and reluctant motion that decrease range of motion, stride length, muscular strength, and ultimately performance.

Using state of the art technology, Equine Muscle Maintenance is leading the way in providing the latest treatments for Equine Athletic Rehabilitation along with its innovative Pre-performance, Post-performance, and Maintenance protocols. The foundation of Equine Muscle Maintenance is a progressive and noninvasive approach to healing that focuses on the Equine Athlete as a whole, not just its symptoms or problem areas. Our holistic approach to treatment enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself and promotes health.

Our approach helps strengthen muscles and improve tissues, thus reducing the potential for injury and increasing the efficiency of movement. With our whole body maintenance protocols, your horse will exhibit improved flexibility, mobility, and balance. Our methodology makes a difference!
