Application of cold therapy in the horse has been recommended in the treatment of acute tendon injuries, suspensory desmitis, and laminitis as well as other non-specific areas of swelling and inflammation.
Inflamed painful tendons and joints respond dramatically to cold therapy.
Cold can be applied continuously for longer periods with ice horse, increasing the effectiveness of the cold therapy you apply.
Continuous cold therapy allows for rapid treatment of pain and swelling, reducing edema and shortening recovery times.
Cold therapy can be used as a preventative measure reducing excessive swelling related to minor wear and tear and excessive filling in areas of previous injury.
