What are the benefits of massage therapy for horses?
Massage has many benefits, the benefits are pain relief, improved locomotor function, improved circulation, and relaxation. Massage is the physical manipulation of the muscular system. Through this manipulation we can help the horse release tension, knots and assist in the breakdown of scar tissue. By releasing all of this we are increasing locomotor function, or correct movement. With the correct movement we are increasing circulation throughout the body. Removing inflammation can help with common lameness or behavioral issues such as: biting, kicking, rearing, cinchiness, ringbone, arthritis, navicular, side bone, tripping, cold back....just to name a few. Massage can also make a chiropractors adjustment last longer. Bones are moved through the attachment of muscles, ligaments and tendons. If there is tension or knots in the soft tissue then after the chiropractor adjusts the skeleton, the soft tissue will just pull the bones out of place again.
