We used it on a horse that had a back injury. It had an accident whereby a vertebra and ligament separated and had to have 3 months off .
Our vet Shane Fouhy looked at our horse, scanned him and x-rayed him to make sure there was no fractures and he said that only total rest would heal this injury and that we should then get him scanned in a month’s time to make sure that it is all going the right way and if not we needed to look at other options.
In the meantime Kay Humphries our saddler visited us and it was her that introduced us to the unit, as she uses it on herself and suggested we try it on the horse, so we thought we would give it a go and thought even if it didn’t work , it wouldn’t harm him, so we used it during the time that the horse was off.
When we took him back to be scanned we mentioned about the unit and our vet said that he had seen good results in a racehorse that had a tendon injury with the unit.
When we went back and had the horse scanned, our vet explained that it had healed a lot better than it should have done and we could have either been very lucky or it could have been the unit.
In another incident , we had a horse that was going to the Royal International that had a few unsightly windgalls, so we thought we would try the unit. It did reduce the windgalls down to not very much and that horse ended up being placed in very good company in the coloured’s classes in his first ever affiliated showing class.
I would def. use the unit again for other incidents.
