Horse Cold Therapy by Ice Boots

Horse Cold Therapy
Horse Cold Therapy,that is ,the use of ice on an injured or inflamed leg. Proper use can help improve a range of muscle, joint, and soft tissue injuries, for cold temperature of ice helps to decrease blood flow to the injured area.In turn, reduced blood flow helps minimize swelling and inflammation, dissipate heat, and alleviate pain. Meanwhile, cold therapy slows metabolism of the tissue surrounding the injury, which helps minimize further damage and, as a result, speed healing.

Cold therapy is most effective during the first 48 hours after an injury or inflammation, the sooner you start, the better. But the use of ice after a hard workout may also help a horse with chronic conditions, such as weak tendons and ligaments from a past injury.

Care needs to be taken, however, whenever cold therapy is used on an injured limb. Bandages wrapped too tightly can compromise circulation. Similarly, ice applied for too long a duration can damage your horse's skin and underlying tissue. The general rule is to ice for 5 minutes and rest for 15 minutes. Repeat this until heat and swelling are reduced. The entire process should be repeated three to four times a day unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.

How To Use Cold Therapy:
There are a range of ice packs and flexible bandages available to make cold therapy easy. The best products to choose will depend, in part, on where your horse's leg injury is located. A more rigid ice pack with standard leg wraps or bandages will better suit some locations of your horse's leg. Other areas, such as along the fetlock or cannon, will be better treated with wraps or bandages.

To target even more specific regions of your horse's lower leg, special re-freezable Ice Boots,make from Japan O.K fabric,provide cooling therapy and manage swelling on your horse's leg. Multiple ice cells on the ice Boot provide the flexibility to mold to the curves of your horse's leg for effective cooling.

Cold Therapy Tips:
Some horses are very responsive to cold temperatures. Even if your horse is not, his attitude could change when you are trying to apply an ice pack to an inflamed leg. To help your horse be more comfortable with the cold temperatures: Use a damp cloth as a buffer between the ice pack and your horse's skin - more layers may be needed when using chemically activated cold packs Do not place ice packs directly onto open wounds. First use several layers of Gauze Swab with Horse Cohesive Bandage on the area between cold therapy treatments to help reduce swelling.
