Have you ever heard about Ice-Vibe products but not exactly sure what they are? Have you wondered if they were for your horse or not? Have you ever wished you owned a pair? Let me shed light on those subjects for you.
Tendons and ligaments require blood flow and movement for healing. A lot of treatments we use to keep horses sound severely reduce tissue temperature and blood flow, which compromises the horses own ability to heal. The modern competition horse is expected to train and compete for the majority of the year leaving very little time for the body to repair.
Horses don’t need to be Olympians or gold cup winners to have large amounts of stress put on their legs. For most of us, our horses are our lives. They are more than just a hobby, they are a way of life and therefore we need to do everything we can to keep them sound without using invasive treatments that cause further damage, mask injury or cause pain.
Ice-Vibe® is a product that was designed for riders to assist their horses in reducing inflammation via circulation, stimulate repair via movement, and assist with bruising and soreness by combining ice and massage. By combining cold therapy and massage, the legs do not get too cold and it allows us to stimulate the lymph system and create movement and blood flow without over working the legs.
Ice-Vibe® is ideal to use daily to help repair wear and tear but also during rehabilitation after tendon injuries or for warm up.
The easy to use pair of boots automatically turn off after their designated setting is over and come with massage panels and cold packs in a sporty bag to keep everything together. Ice-Vibe® is available in knee and hock versions, plus full and extra-full tendon boots.
