    EquiPulse, The Star of the Show

    Anyone who has hired Dr. Reuben to work on their horse has noted his 4-part procedure delivered in a particular sequence. The reason for this is that each procedure prepares the structures and tissues to receive the next procedure with maximum effect. The goal and usual result is maximum improvement in a minimum amount of time.

    Every procedure is important but the final procedure is the Grand Finale. This would be the EquiPulse, which is a highly effective application of a Pulsed Electromagnetic Field or PEMF, the most powerful healing technology yet developed for man or beast. PEMF is non-static, unlike therapy with standard magnets or magnetic blankets. PEMF delivers the magnetic field in high-powered pulses, and can penetrate far deeper into the tissues than static magnets, with far greater effect.

    In the world of medicine, physicians have long known that “the body electric” is for real: tiny electrical currents and magnetic fields are constantly firing off inside you. Until recently, we haven't known how to harness these forces for healing. But a handful of scientists and medical innovators have relentlessly pursued this and have been ultimately succeeding, especially now with modern technology enabling production of a sufficiently portable machine that can generate a powerful enough PEMF that can be controlled and therapeutically applied.

    So how does PEMF heal? Nerves, muscles, bones, cartilage, spinal fluids and blood all rely on a symphony of dancing ions to function correctly. Injuries or stress that accumulates to cause tissue inflammation can interrupt this “dance”. PEMFs activate these electrically charged particles in ways that turn off inflammation and turn on cell repair. PEMF instantly expands the diameter of veins and capillaries, which does the following:   

     

    • More blood can flow to the area being treated, which is critical to accelerating the healing process.
    • Around inflamed areas, vaso-dilation will help dissipate buildup of fluid, thus reducing swelling and inflammation.
    • Vaso-dilation quickly enables many other of the body's healing mechanisms, such as cell growth and repair, lymphatic drainage, oxygen flow, and energy storage.

     

    Additionally, scarring and trauma to muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and cartilage start to break up. This provides the relief most patients (including horses) experience after one or two treatments on an affected area. No other form of therapy, not laser, not TENS, shockwave, ultrasound or anything else currently available, has the widespread scope of regenerative and relieving effects of PEMF. The EquiPulse is considered the Ferrari of PEMF devices.

    Over the last decade there has been a proliferation of PEMF devices in every discipline of the equine industry, primarily the EquiPulse:

    • Dr. Henry Adair, DVM at the University of Tennessee has integrated the EquiPulse into our country's only Equine Rehabilitation Certification Program for DVMs and RVTs.
    • Dr. Mark Martinelli, DVM, PhD, Diplomate American College of Veterinary Surgeons, Diplomate American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine, has integrated the EquiPulse into his practice at Southern California Equine Orthopedics since 2009, with great success.
    • Dr. Chris Newton, DVM of The Rood and Riddle Equine Center in Lexington Kentucky, has used EquiPulse with “stunning results”, along with many other equine therapeutic facilities nationwide.

    And..

    Dr. Michael Reuben, D.C., CVCP of Equine Sport Performance in Southern California has integrated the EquiPulse into his equine therapy practice since 2013. He has recorded astounding results, and many happy horses and their humans, which is why at Equine Sport Performance the EquiPulse is the “Star of the Show”.
