Equine Alternative Therapies
Equine alternative therapies refer to non-conventional or complementary treatments used to promote the health and well-being of horses. These therapies are often used with traditional veterinary medicine and are designed to support the horse's natural healing processes.
A horse's body takes a beating from our rescued equine family member or a racehorse, regardless of what type it is. As the animal ages and after retirement from professional performance, it will need different stages of treatment.
We provide top care with an equine vet trained in our natural therapy. Our mobile vet at Backstretch Veterinary Associate Inc. in Groveland Sherborn, MA, can help with all these holistic treatments.
Acupuncture is a proven safe and effective way to treat hardship over this complex body. Our equine vet places acupuncture needles strategically where the issue is. These target points receive increased blood flow, balanced energies, and pain relief.
Acupuncture is a safe and painless procedure that can positively change the health and performance of your horse. When your horse is immobile, it won’t thrive, and the life expectancy shortens. The equine vet at Groveland Sherborn, MA, strives to give longevity to your beloved horse family member.
The therapeutic stretch benefits your horse and minimizes tension and stress collected in the muscles and soft tissues while taking pressure off the spine. Stretching for horses is a beneficial practice to improve the horse's flexibility, range of motion, and muscle condition. It involves performing gentle stretching exercises that target specific muscle groups to help prevent injuries, promote relaxation, and enhance performance.
Equine massage therapy is a specialized form that our veterinary practice performs to ease your horse's daily stress. Whether your horse is working, in a rescue, or retired, your horse carries a story in the body for life deep in the connective tissue.
Massage therapy releases the pain, tension, and lactic acid that causes pain and stiffness. Blood circulation is restored in key areas. In addition, massage therapy is best for bonding with your horse and softening them to the human touch.
