Equine Cold Laser Therapy LLLT – How to use a cold laser on horses Here are a few of the most commonly ask questions we get at Brandenburg Equine: Will cold laser treatments help with partially torn ligaments? Cold laser therapy treatments help promote healing as well as reduce inflammation, which causes pain. Cold laser therapy can promote tissue regeneration, wound healing and muscle recovery; reduce inflammation and relieve pain; and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels. LLLT is used in injury rehabilitation – and specifically for joint damage – due to its anti-inflammatory and pain relief properties. Can cold laser therapy treatments help with founder? Cold laser treatments can help reduce the inflammation caused by founder, which will help alleviate some of the pain associated with founder. LLLT treatments also help increase circulation and stimulate cell growth. Which is better the pulse or the constant on? We have found that the Pulse setting is best for arthritic or old/chronic injuries while the Continuous mode is for fresh, acute injuries. Would cold laser treatments help navicular? We have used the cold laser on a navicular horse. It can help to reduce the inflammation caused by the Navicular. Inflammation causes pain so cold laser treatments can help alleviate some pain. But LLLT will not fix the root cause(s). Purchase your handheld cold laser therapy device today!

An equine massage gun is one of the best ways to release muscular pain in a horse. One of the essential therapies is equine massage therapy, another is doing Common Sense Stretches before and after activity. Horses are incredible animals with many extraordinary abilities that require more physical activity than most animals; therefore, they need more health care and pain management techniques to keep moving.

An equine massage gun
is one of the best ways to release muscular pain in a horse.  One of
the essential therapies is equine massage therapy, another is doing Common Sense Stretches
before and after activity. Horses are incredible animals with many
extraordinary abilities that require more physical activity than most
animals; therefore, they need more health care and pain management
techniques to keep moving.

Horses benefit from massage because their physical activity makes
their muscles strain and often over worked and sometimes injured. To
relax the muscle tension and quicker supply of blood oxygen to the
injured or stiff muscle, horses need massage regularly.

Equine massage, especially percussion massage techniques, has been
used for relaxation, advanced joint movements, pulled muscle, and severe
pain management.

Benefits of Equine Massage Therapy

  • Equine massage therapy is used to relax the motor nerves that help in keeping calm the nervous horse.
  • It is also helpful for good sleeping patterns and reduces restlessness and stress.
  • Improved Proprioception
  • More Efficient Movement
  • Improved Posture, Circulation, Hair Coat, Muscle Tone
  • Increased Flexibility and Range Of Motion
  • Immune System Support
  • Injury Prevention
  • Increased Benefits When Used In Conjunction With Chiropractic and/or Acupuncture.

Equine massage can have a profound effect on the nervous system of
the horse. Some of the benefits of equine massage therapy, to name just a
few, are pain relief, stimulation of the motor nerves, relief from
restlessness and sleep disturbance, and improved proprioception. Equine
massage is also thought to help calm nervous horses or horses in
unfamiliar surroundings and/or stressful conditions. 

An Interview with Troy Brandenburg about Equine Therapy

Troy Brandenburg talks with Mitali Rajadithya about equine therapy. The equipment he sells and uses in his equine therapy business. He
discusses his experience treating, Thumbelina the world’s smallest
horse. He also talks about being equine therapist and his mantra for
life of being grateful to life.

A message from Troy Brandenburg: After years of reading, studying,
observing and living within the equestrian arena, I came to the
conclusion that most people make the diagnosis of horses too
complicated. In return, they treat the problem instead of treating the
cause of the problem. Most chronic problems and issues with horses are
simply due to compromised blood flow.

Consequently, I’ve become driven to learn how to increase blood flow
to the whole horse. When I work on a horse increasing blood flow and
releasing muscles, you see an over all calming affect upon the horse. My
work has a lasting affect upon the whole being. It helps with digestion
issues, boost immune response, increases flexibility &
elasticity,and softens muscles. Over all the horse is just healthier.
Because the horse is feeling better, he is more responsive to the rider
and generally just happier with thyself – The End Result, better
performance for you.

My passion to help the horse has me traveling the entire United
States working on one horse to another. I’ve become known from nothing
more than one satisfied customer talking to another inquiring customer.
In my eyes, no problem is too small and no distance is too far. Visit us online at https://brandenburgequinetherapy.com

Discover the Benefits of Cold Laser (LLLT) Treatments

Troy Brandenburg demonstrates his technique on using the handheld cold laser on a horses joints and knees. Cold Laser therapy for equines has the benefits of traditional pain
relief methods but without many of the drawbacks associated with
alternative forms of equine pain relief and wound care.

A quality class 3B Cold Laser LLLT with (5) 808nm laser
diodes and (10) 650nm laser diodes for a maximum output of 800mW. Cold
Therapy Lasers are 95% effective for pain relieving and
anti-inflammation in many cases. This handheld laser has MORE 808nm
diodes and is stronger than other similar handheld lasers on the market.
Includes FREE protective eye-wear.

Cold laser therapy (LLLT) is thought to work
when the light an LLLT device emits passes through the skin into the
body, where it stimulates the energy and respiration centers of cells –
mitochondria – resulting in greater cell energy, communication,
nutrition, growth and life.

LLLT is used to reduce inflammation, the most
common cause of musculoskeletal pain. Research has shown that it reduces
the cells and enzymes responsible for causing inflammation and
increases antioxidant and anti-inflammatory enzymes.

Each laser has two sets of beams. Ten 650
nanometer laser beams are set around the perimeter of the device head.
They reach a depth of 2-3 centimeters in depth and are perfect for
reaching acupressure points as well as more surface level issues like
skin and hair.

The center of the device head has Five 808
nanometer laser beams, which penetrate much deeper tissue – 4-6
centimeters deep, As such, the lasers can penetrate rotator cuffs,
static nerve pain, lower back pain, tissue injuries and inflammation.

Cold Laser Therapy Device for Equines

Cold laser therapy
for equines has the benefits of traditional pain relief methods but
without many of the drawbacks associated with alternative forms of
equine pain relief and wound care. Cold laser, also called Low Light Laser Therapy or LLLT, therapy has been used since the 1960s to provide pain relief and healing.

when the light an LLLT device emits passes through the skin into the
body, where it stimulates the energy and respiration centers of cells –
mitochondria – resulting in greater cell energy, communication,

Cold lasers, or LLLT, are NOT recommended for cancerous areas or where
cancer was removed. Like any other equipment, LLLT should never be used
to treat eyes unless it is being done so by a veterinarian with proper
training, as it is very easy to do more damage. It is NOT recommend for
use if pregnant. Never use LLLT near the thyroid.

The mechanism of low level laser therapy (LLLT) is combined with
wavelength 808nm and 650nm laser, when it gives you the direct
irradiation on your knee, joint, neck or spine, thus to improve the
microcirculation & metabolism in the irradiated area and increase an
abundant blood supply to the injured tissues. In addition, the cold
laser device increases the tensile strength of tissue, accelerate the
rehabilitation of the sports injury, relieve the pain and
anti-inflammation. The 660mW cold laser therapy machine has been proven
in clinical trials to promote faster healing times and reduce pain.

According to Troy, “Massage is a mind game you need to connect your
mind to your horse”. 10 to 15 minutes of good common sense stretches are
more than enough daily.
