Joint Injections

Joint injections continue to be important in keeping the horse moving soundly and helping to prevent soft tissue injury. There are new techniques and new medications available for joint therapy. 

Laser Therapy

The fundamental principles that underpin photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy, as currently understood in the scientific literature, are relatively straightforward. There is consensus that the application of a therapeutic dose of light to impaired or dysfunctional tissue leads to a cellular response mediated by mitochondrial mechanisms that reduce pain and inflammation and speed healing.

PRP Therapy

PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is sometimes known as “ACP” (Autologous Conditioned Plasma). PRP concentrates the healing properties found in the horse's own blood and is designed to help repair tendons and ligaments. PRP therapy can be begun and completed in one day and is often effective with just one injection.

Microcurrent Therapy 

Microcurrent Therapy introduces very low-level electrical currents into the horse's body through 2 electrode pads applied to the skin.  At its simplest, a microcurrent is an electrical current measured in millionths of an amp or µA. It’s perfectly safe and can’t be felt, in the same way you can’t feel your body’s own natural bio-currents because they are similar in strength. How is this possible? The aim of Microcurrent Therapy is to support and aid the body's own natural healing process. Microcurrents occur naturally within the body and they are vital for the production of ATP which moves essential substances in and out of the cells, while simultaneously boosting the body's absorption of amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), which are an essential component of tissue repair.

Spine Relief with Mesotherapy

Spinal pain is a common problem in our horses.  Diagnosis can be challenging and is aided by a thorough examination of the horse’s musculoskeletal system. Defining whether the pain is primary and/or secondary is critical in formulating a proper therapeutic plan. Sacro-iliac (SI), Lumbo-sacral (LS) and Para-vertebral  (PV) injections are commonly performed to manage back pain. Mesotherapy is helpful in managing horses that are extremely back-sensitive. 


Osteopathy looks at the horse as a whole, using symptoms such as the imbalance in thoracic vertebrae as a guide to find the underlying ulcer. Osteopathy finds and corrects imbalances in the joints, organs and viscera. Athletic performance is restored or enhanced. Osteopathy has been around for more than 100 years but surprisingly, many people still don’t know much about it. Similar to chiropractic in that we manipulate the muscles and joints, Osteopathy also considers the organs and the connections between the skull and pelvis. In other words, to be an osteopath you must work on all three systems of the body: musculoskeletal, visceral (organs) and cranial sacral.

Laser guided acupuncture

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, living organisms are a road map of energy conduits, specified as meridians or channels. These carry life-giving energy to and from every body system. Any interference or interruption in that energy flow can disrupt normal function, leading to disease. Treating disease along laser guided acupuncture points involves the stimulation — without the use of needles — of specific points along affected channels to reopen “blocked” energy flow and reestablish normal functioning. Laser guided acupuncture uses these same meridians to detect an energy blockage. Precision in selecting the proper points and guiding the laser to the proper point, and in maintaining treatment for the proper length of time, are critical to successful laser guided acupuncture.

Recent years have brought great strides in equine veterinary sciences that have led to some extraordinary new and effective treatments. We are highly trained in administering the latest advancements in equine treatment and therapy, including Joint Injections, Laser Therapy, PRPBack TherapyMicrocurrent Therapy, Osteopathy and Laser guided acupuncture.
