cryotherapy

the results of -180 C

By using a dry cooling substance the temperature inside the cryochamber drops from -120 C to -180 C.
The organism cools down very quickly. Thanks to that the horse is briefly exposed to the dry cold.
Low temperatures results in stimultion and and vasocongestion effect.

Indications and Counterindications for systemic cryotherapy

Indications

  • Dislocacations, sprains, muscle strains
  • Bone fracture and post-surgery rehabilitation
  • Finger flexor sinew and sesamoid trauma (navicular syndrome)

  • Inflammations
  • Hock joint degeration
  • Interosseus muscle trauma
  • Splint bone trauma
  • Elbow joint capsule inflammation
  • Back pain syndrome
  • Knee joint trauma
  • Bone spavin – changes in hock joint
  • Ligamental trauma
  • Intermuscular hematoma
  • Joint sprains (eg. hock joint trauma)
  • Mucle abbrasion (Biceps bursa inflamation)
  • Cracked heels

THERAPEUTIC USE OF CRYOSTIMULATION IN HORSES

Uses

– Rehabilitation
– Sports medicine
– Bio-regeneration

The aims

– Pain management
– Diminishing of inflammatory activity
– Reducing the endoskeletal muscle tension – spasticity reduction
– Regrowth of muscle strength
– Edema reduction
– Strengthening of immune and hormonal systems
– Relaxation

Basic effects

– Analgesic activity
– Anti inflammatory activity
– Anti oedimic activity

THE USE OF SYSTEMIC CYOTHERAPY IN SPORT TRAINING.

Modern sports are a rivalisation of the limits of endurance, and the success is conditional upon effective regeneration.

The benefits of

cryotherapy in the yearly training cycle of horses

– Increase in physical aerobic endurance and anaerobic strength
– Increase in condition and fatigue tolerance
– Increase in overal immunology of the organism – limited infections
– Increase in testosterone production
– Increase in muscle strength and endurance
– Endorphine levels increase
– Increase in collagen quality

The benefits of

ad hoc use of cryotherapy in horses inbetween trainings

– Increase in active vasocongestion of tissues – accelerated post-fatigue regeneration
– Increase in readiness for upcoming fatigue
– Increase in match fatigue tolerance and endurance
– Decrease in organism fatigue
– Incerase in effectivity of endoskeletal muscle contraction
– Improvement in endurance, strength and speed parameters, efficiency and stamina in racer horses
