Electromagnetic therapy is for soft tissue and bony injuries and works on the basis of exciting molecules within the tissues to increase circulation and promote healing. OVLAC offers Centurion electromagnetic boot therapy for use on distal extremities (limbs), and electromagnetic foot board therapy for use on feet. Foot board use is generally instituted on an in-hospital basis. Treatment with either the foot board or boot is non-painful and non-invasive.
We prescribe electromagnetic therapy in many cases. We may prescribe EM therapy for the following situations:
• Fractures (splint bones, cannon bones sesamoids)
• Inflamed bone • Stress fractures in bone
• Acute injury to one leg • Laminitis
• Sore feet (bruised, navicular pain)
