Experience Rehabilitation Center
Our goal in developing our sports medicine and rehabilitation programs is to use scientific knowledge, gained in both human and equine medicine, to raise the standard of care and performance of the athletic horse.
The goals of our rehabilitation program
- Relieve Pain
- Restore Range of Motion
- Regain Strength
- Return for Intended Use
The Equine Center has a team of experienced sports medicine staff that work alongside owners, trainers, chiropractors, farriers and other horse professionals to evaluate a horse’s condition and their physical potential.
We can design the most appropriate course of action to meet the owner’s goals, whether that is a return from injury or a maintenance plan for fitness.
The Equine Center has successfully rehabilitated many injuries such as tendons, ligaments, joint and back pain as well as recoveries from surgical procedures. The treadmill is also utilized by local show and event horses as an addition to their conditioning program to enhance their horse’s top line and over all fitness.
