PEMF Therapy for Horses - All You Need to Know

What is Equine Magnetic Therapy for Horses? What are the benefits?

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy has a wide range of applications and brings numerous health benefits to those who use it. Not only is it beneficial for people, but it also extends to horses.


Here are some key points about PEMF therapy for horses:

Keeping your horse in top condition after a competition or a long day of hard work takes time and care. PEMF therapy is a powerful tool that horse owners and breeders have been using for over fifty years.


Let’s look into the benefits and how it can enhance your horse well-being.

How Does PEMF Therapy Work?

PEMF therapy involves delivering pulsed magnetic fields into the tissues using inductive coils. These fields stimulate cell metabolism and promote healing at a cellular level. Here’s why PEMF therapy is gaining popularity.


Cell Stimulation: By exposing horses to pulsating magnetic fields PEMF increases oxygen stimulation, and accelerates the removal of toxins and waste.

Enhances Performance: By improving blood flow and cell function PEMF therapy enhances speed, strength, endurance, and range of motion in horses during competitions and races. It keeps them in top condition, allowing faster recovery after the stress of competition.

Accelerates Injury Recovery and Healing. Whether it’s muscle healing, bone fractures, or repairing cracked hooves, PEMF therapy speeds up recovery times. Many horse keepers use Curatron PEMF devices to treat these injuries and maintain and restore the health of their horses .

Improved Blood Circulation: PEMF optimizes cell function, allowing damaged cells to improve receipt of oxygen and nutrients. 

Keeps Horses Calm: Horses love PEMF therapy because it soothes them.

Reduces Pain: Equine PEMF helps alleviate strain-related symptoms, reducing pain, swelling, and soreness.

Promotes Longer Careers: Regular PEMF maintenance means healthier, happier horses. It prevents degenerative joint disease and ensures longer, more productive careers.

PEMF therapy is a completely safe way to treat horses. It's a great way to enhance performance, increase strength while making the recovery process faster and prevent injuries, and improve blood circulation.

Early devices used radiofrequency electromagnetic waves for deep tissue heat.

Later, non-thermal devices focused on wound healing and pain management.

In the late 1970s, non-invasive inductive antennas successfully treated fractures and pulsed electromagnetic bone growth stimulators gained FDA approval for human use and later became an FDA-approved therapy for reduced inflammation. 

PEMF can be used to treat various conditions in animals including:

Osteoarthritis and degenerative joint disease

Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD)

Chronic wounds

Swelling (edema)

Post-operative pain

Musculoskeletal or neurologic conditions.

Considerations for effective PEMF therapy: very high intensities, more than 1 Tesla [10.000 Gauss] and low frequency pulses between 1 and 5 Hz [pulses per second] are ideal for cell regeneration and growth. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. Most horses respond best to very low frequencies, while others may benefit from somewhat higher pulsing frequencies. Remember that PEMF therapy can be a valuable addition to your horse’s overall well-being.
