    Default Alternative therapies

    I tried posting this on sport horse, maybe more luck here. So what therapy devices are popular at the track? I'm talking things like pulsed magnetic therapy, laser treatments, massage, ultra sound, etc... I am thinking of starting up an equine mobile rehab and am wondering what are some of the more used and have you noticed a difference? And if you use any of these, do you mind naming what brand if that is allowed here?

    A lot of pretty traditional folks are using Massage therapy and equine chiropractry.

    I swear by the first and I'm a little suspicious of the value of the latter.

    When my filly was in training at the track, I had an excellent massage therapist that worked with her regularly. The therapist also used therapeutic-grade essential oils.

    My filly at the track hasn't required chiropractic treatment, but my mare at home has had chiro for her neck. It works wonders for her.
