EQ Pro Reviews
DVM, MS, DACVSMR, Certified in Equine Locomotor Pathology (ISELP)
EQultrasound is a form of therapy that uses ultrasound waves to have an effect on primarily soft tissues. We’ve had our best effect with soft tissues and with soreness and stiffness, and it’s been very effective for us. The nice thing about EQultrasound is it’s a low frequency, easy to use, very safe therapeutic device. We would highly recommend EQultrasound for a number of different conditions, training conditions, as well as exercise conditions, and my experience with it has been primarily with young horses or horses up into the training phase, where they go into new conditions, maybe have a little more strenuous work outs then they’re used to, and it’s been very successful for us in terms of mitigating some of those soreness’s and stiffness’s that come along with over-exercising. We’ve been very happy with the results we’ve had with EQultrasound. The horses seem to relax first off, and behaviorally seem to calm down. But more importantly, over time seem to be very comfortable, in terms of relieving muscular soreness as well as stiffness. These horses go back to work. They seem happier and they tend to be more relaxed.
