Healing Therapies

We offer a wide variety of advanced treatments for your horse.

ESWT (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy)  is the release of high energy sound waves to treat targeted areas. These sound waves create a biological response releasing proteins and healing factors within the body. This increases blood supply and helps repairs tissue within tendons, joints, and bones. 

IRAP is a potent anti-inflammatory agent usually derived from your horse's own blood.   It is commonly used to treat joint disease and occasionally soft tissue injury.  

Stem cell therapy can improve the healing of an injured tendon and/or ligament.

 

Pro-Stride APS
Autologous Protein Solution Device
 
Pro-Stride APS is a proprietary dual-device system whose output produces a concentrated solution of cells, platelets, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory proteins (including IL-1ra and other anabolic proteins).

 

  • All-Natural (from patient's own blood)

  • Clinically demonstrated effectiveness*

  • Convenient (no incubation, <20-minute processing, ambulatory)


Interleukin-1, also known as IL-1, and tumor necrosis factor alpha, also known as TNF-alpha, are the key pro-inflammatory proteins called cytokines which need to be blocked from damaging the tissue.  These inflammatory cytokines bind to the cell surface receptors on the cartilage and start the process of cartilage breakdown which ultimately leads to joint pain and damage.  

There are several naturally occurring inhibitors (anti-inflammatory proteins) of the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1 and TNF-alpha.  These include the interleukin-1 receptor antagonist protein (IRAP), also known as IL-1ra, SIL-1r, also known as Soluble interleukin-1 receptor and STNF-rs, known as Soluble tumor necrosis factor receptors. All of these are highly concentrated within Pro-Stride APS.
 

  • Pro-Stride does not require an incubation period

  • Pro-Stride's output is not an autologous conditioned serum (ACS)

  • Pro-Stride's output is never frozen

Noltrex Vet

INNOVATIVE HYDROGEL

Provides sustained lubrication by mechanically protecting the joint and reducing friction, Noltrex®Vet mitigates a root cause of sore joints. The polyacrylamide hydrogel contained in Noltrex®Vet mimics the viscoelastic properties of synovial fluid and provides synthetic joint lubrication.
