  1. Magnetic therapy is a therapeutic technique that uses magnetism to relieve pain and enhance healing. The magnetic field triggers biochemical reactions in cells, stimulates nerves, and provides electrical currents to damaged tissue. It can also speed up the process of cellular growth for wound closure.

    Magnetic therapy has been used extensively in humans with a variety of medical problems such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, neuritis pain relief from amputations or nerve injuries, chronic low back pain from disc herniation or degenerative disc disease.

    Magnetic therapy has been found to be beneficial for horses who have sore muscles from paddock injury and muscle fatigue or injury due to competition or training.

    PEMF therapy is a form of magnetic therapy that uses pulsed electromagnetic fields to treat muscle injuries, inflammation, and pain. PEMF therapy can be delivered using magnets worn on the skin , or electrodes implanted in the tissue near the injury site . PEMF therapy has been used successfully for humans who have patellofemoral pain / pain in the knee, patellar tendinopathy, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome , osteoarthritis of the knee, rotator cuff injury, low back pain.

    Horses have been successfully treated for tendon injuries (carpal and superficial digital flexor tendons) with PEMF therapy where there is patellar pain present in the lower limb or suspensory ligament injury. PEMF therapy has also been reported to be beneficial for equine osteoarthritis .

    When PEMF therapy or magnetic therapy are used together it is referred to as PEMF magnetotherapy, pemfabulation, pemf-m, pemf machine, pemfx.

    Horses that have sore muscles from paddock injury or muscle fatigue or injury due to competition or training can benefit from PEMF therapy. It can be delivered using magnets worn on the skin, electrodes implanted in the tissue near the injury site.
