Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy

Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy or PMFT uses systematically pulsed, dynamic magnets to effect the body at a cellular level: helping to restore the cells natural resting potential. It can be used on different settings to aid the body in a number of different ways. It can help aid the body’s repair processes, aiding fracture healing, reducing pain, reducing muscle spasm, aiding nerve regeneration and reducing inflammation. The treatment is non invasive and typically animals enjoy and relax during their treatments with the PMFT unit.

Phototherapy

Phototherapy utilises coloured light of specific frequency lengths, emitted from light emitting diodes (LEDs). The light is applied over targeted tissue, where energy from the light beam is transferred to the cells and can alter the chemical structures to have an effect on the cells.

Red light phototherapy is an excellent aid for optimising wound repair, increasing circulation, resolving areas of muscle tightness and non-invasive trigger point release. Red light phototherapy can also have a positive effect on the repair of tendon and ligament injuries.

Blue light phototherapy has an antibacterial effect, helping in the resolution of ‘dirty’ wounds, in addition to bacterial skin conditions such as mud fever, rainscald and gingivitis.

Therapeutic ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves which are targeted over the specified tissue, this causes a physical effect on the tissue. It encourages collagen production and correct alignment of collagen fibres, so is especially useful in the reduction of scar tissue and to aid the healing of tendon and ligament damage. It can also be used to increase circulation and reduce areas of extreme muscle tightness.
