One of the key tools used in equine therapy is the equine theraplate –
a specially designed platform that emits low-frequency vibrations, helping to improve the overall well-being of both horses and humans.
1. Increased circulation:
Equine theraplates stimulate blood flow throughout the body, promoting better circulation. This increased circulation is especially beneficial for horses with injuries or ailments, as it aids in reducing swelling, inflammation, and promoting healing.
2.Enhanced muscle development and strength:
By standing on the theraplate, horses are met with gentle vibrations that engage their muscles. This helps to improve their muscle tone, strength, and overall flexibility. The unique motion of a theraplate mimics the natural movement a horse experiences when walking or trotting, aiding in muscular development.
3. Accelerated healing:
Alongside improved circulation, the vibrational therapy provided by an equine theraplate helps accelerate healing processes in both soft tissues and bones. It can be particularly useful for horses recovering from injuries or surgeries, as it supports the body's natural healing mechanisms.
4. Pain management:
The low-frequency vibrations emitted by an equine theraplate can act as a natural pain reliever for horses. These vibrations trigger the release of endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers. This can offer much-needed relief to horses suffering from chronic pain conditions, such as arthritis.
5. Improved balance and coordination:
Standing on an equine theraplate requires horses to engage their core muscles and find balance. Over time, this can help them develop better coordination and stability, making them more agile and responsive during various activities, such as riding or competing.
