Microcurrent Therapy for Horses – ArcEquine

Recently on twitter it was suggested that I follow a horse related account. Curious about any horse products and sites, I headed along to find out what ArcEquine was all about. It seems it’s a website that promotes microcurrent therapy for horses.

A look at the website indicates that this form of therapy could be used to successfully treat many issues.  The likes of broken bones, reduction of pain, reducing scar tissue, swelling and bruising.  And then there’s the stifle, sarcoids and the sacroiliac region in the horse. As it says on the site:

“ArcEquine mimics the body’s natural electrical currents and reintroduces them from an external source. This kick-starts and accelerates many processes involved with correct cellular functioning, resulting in faster healing and promoting optimal health.”

The use of this technology was introduced to the horse world several years ago.  This was in the form of a study being done on racehorses that had substantial injuries. These were the kind of injuries to end the horse’s racing career and even potentially to threaten their life. Ian Thirkell who has created ArcEquine used microcurrent therapy on these horses.

It resulted in the average return to racing time frame for these horses to be 30 weeks. This is pretty incredible when you consider a diagnosis of not being able to race again!

What I find further encouraging is that there were no repeat performances in the area of breaking down with the same injury after being treated. This is exciting stuff! If you have an interest in rehabilitation of performance horses, then perhaps ArcEquine has piqued your interest.

It’s a wonderful thing to know about and be able to use services and technologies that can help keep our horses sound or resolve a soundness issue.  And to be involved in such an industry as a career can be just as incredible.

“I’ve often told people who ask if there is a God: Get around enough people with horses and see what happens. See how they survive in spite of all the things they do, and you’ll become a believer!” ― Buck Brannaman
