How and why can light therapy help your horse?
Light therapy, also known as phototherapy, is a form of treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. Light therapy has been shown to have a number of benefits, including reducing inflammation, relieving pain and promoting tissue repair.
For your horse, light therapy can be particularly helpful in treating tendons, sore muscles and other forms of pain or inflammation. The 660 nanometer red light and 850 nanometer near infrared wavelengths of light used in our Wrap penetrate deep into the tissues and provide a soothing and therapeutic effect on the body. 660 nanometer red light is known for its wound healing properties, whereas 850nm NIR is known for its anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects.
In addition to its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects, light therapy can also help improve circulation, stimulate collagen production and boost the immune system. These benefits can help improve the horse's overall health and well-being. It is important to note that light therapy is most effective when used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, in combination with other therapies such as massage and physiotherapy.
