Managing Arthritis in Competition Horses with Microcurrent Therapy – ARC EQUINE

Equine Arthritis

It goes without saying that over time, the high impact nature of eventing has an adverse impact on your horse’s body. While some injuries can occur suddenly it’s very often repetitive movements that cause a gradual deterioration of the joints.

Equine arthritis is the inflammation of any affected joint within the body. The most commonly occurring forms of arthritis are infectious arthritis, osteoarthritis and post-traumatic arthritis. Although arthritis is associated with older horses, it can affect horses of any age due to joint wear and tear. Regardless of the age or underlying cause of the inflammation, arthritis is an unwanted diagnosis, but it is not untreatable!

What is Microcurrent Therapy?
Microcurrent Therapy is used to support the recovery of a wide range of acute and chronic conditions that would benefit from reduced inflammation, pain reduction, tissue repair and accelerated healing.

Scientific research into Microcurrent Therapy has found that it facilitates the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This is the energy providing molecule that is required for all metabolic cellular processes which are fundamental for facilitating pain management and the healing process.  

Treating Arthritis Naturally – An Alternative to Drugs

“The reality is that you’re not going to fix the joint or cure arthritis,” says Margaret Brosnahan, DVM, of Oklahoma State University, however, what can be done is to “reduce the inflammation, pain and further damage.”
Microcurrent Therapy helps bring pain and inflammation under control by targeting the cause of pain which is more effective than simply treating the symptoms, e.g. blocking pain. It is completely drug-free and a natural alternative to options such as Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs and invasive surgery.

We urge equine owners to use Microcurrent Therapy before undergoing invasive procedures as the surgical route can often be completely bypassed, saving time, money and unnecessary pain for the animal involved.

At ArcEquine, we often get feedback from Arc Users about how impressed their vets are at the speed of natural recovery. Quite often, vets that start out as Microcurrent Therapy sceptics turn into devout believers after seeing the positive results.

Invest in Your Horse’s Health

No one enjoys receiving a bill from their vet and annual costs can reach eye-watering levels. The ArcEquine is in no way a replacement for a first-rate vet, but many of these costs are preventable. Investing in the ArcEquine with a one-time payment of £449.00 will give you a lifetime of preventative maintenance, as well as pain management and accelerated healing times!
