Equissage - how it works

05 August, 2013

 

The Equissage Cycloid Vibration Therapy (CVT) Physiotherapy System is one of the safest forms of physiotherapy available.

Equissage devices have been developed in Australia and the UK from the Niagara Therapy physiotherapy products that have been used on humans for both injuries and mobility for over 60 years. This equipment is used in hospitals, clinics and sport clubs. It’s also built into furniture for home use.

Through ongoing research conducted in Hospitals, Universities, and research institutions, this form of treatment has been proven to be totally non-aggressive, drug free and free of side effects.

The proven medical benefits include Increased Circulation and Lymphatic Drainage, Relaxation of Muscles and Increased Joint Mobility, which in turn, produces better movement and performance for both you and your horse.

The Equissage Back Pack gives a deep tissue Cycloidal Massage to the entire horse. Due to the unique action of CVT, the Back Pack actively Improves Circulation, Relaxes Muscles while providing Passive Exercise and promotes Lymphatic Drainage.

For the best therapeutic benefits, the Hand Pack should always be used in conjunction with the Equissage Back Pack, as the action of the Hand Pack will be far more effective when the horse’s lymphatic system is already stimulated by the Back Pack. Speed up healing of many conditions and provides an ongoing treatment option for optimal result.

Equissage - benefits

01 May, 2013

Respiratory Problems

Equissage can help alleviate the impact of numerous symptoms caused by respiratory problems.Respiratory problems often go undetected as they are not always accompanied by any clinical signs e.g. coughing, nasal discharge. The most common respiratory problem affecting adult horses is Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO) which was previously known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Other respiratory problems include Exercise-induced Pulmonary Haemorrhage (EIPH), Secondary bacterial respiratory infections (e.g. Influenza) and Viral Respiratory infections, which are common in horses.

Equissage can help with a range of respiratory problems, the unique cycloid action is very beneficial as it can reduce spasms and help to clear mucus from the respiratory tract. Respiratory conditions often result in congestion of the airways as a result of excess mucus and inflammation. The cycloidal vibrations help to shift this mucus and reduce inflammation.

The Equissage massage therapy system works well to alleviate coughs and help breathing, particularly in bleeders as lung fluid and pressure may be reduced. The Equissage Hand Unit, which should be used in conjunction with the Equissage Pad, can be used to help treat general and specific respiratory problems e.g. thick-winded horses.

 

Musculoskeletal Disorders

Equissage can help alleviate the impact of numerous symptoms caused by musculoskeletal disorders.

Musculoskeletal disorders can affect muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Equissage is a proven therapeutic tool which will help to reduce swelling, improve local blood circulation and can help horses with muscle problems, pulled ligaments and tendons.

This is why it is present in the yards of so many racehorse trainers, event, dressage and show-jumping riders. The deep circulatory massage reaches all parts of the leg increasing local blood and lymphatic circulation, thus reducing inflammation, easing tired and stretched muscles and aiding mobility of affected joints. And of course the same massaging effect actually tones (and strengthens) fibres.

 

Skin Problems 

Equissage can help alleviate the impact of numerous symptoms caused by skin problems.

Skin diseases, wounds and swellings can often be improved with Equissage as it helps to increase local blood circulation, increase lymphatic drainage and reduce inflammation and fluid build-up.

Haematomas and abscesses can be improved and a significant reduction in the healing time observed as the unique cycloidal action promotes lymphatic and venous drainage. With regard to affected areas of skin and the healing process, Equissage can reduce the risk of skin thickening by promoting localised circulation. This is by means of exercising the minute muscles of the lymphatic system which then works to eliminate wastes and toxins thus allowing in all the fresh nutrients vital to healing of the affected skin. A horse with healthy skin and a healthy immune system can more readily.


Diseases, Syndromes & Other Problems

Equissage can help alleviate the impact of numerous symptoms caused by diseases, syndromes and various other problems.

Regular sessions with Equissage will help the circulation particularly to the distal limbs; good circulation is important to ensure all areas receive nourishment for cell regeneration, and to support the immune system. Of equal importance is good lymphatic and venous drainage.

The use of Equissage will also help with muscle tone which is vital when horses are less mobile and are suffering from a disease. For horses on box rest following illness, injury or surgery the benefits are both mental and physical. Physically, Equissage helps to speed up the healing process and mentally, provides stimulation helping to relieve boredom thus reducing the possibility of stereotypical behaviours.
