Restoring Your Horse to a Happy Life with Equine Rehabilitation

A healthy horse is a happy horse


You and your horse may be practically inseparable. You certainly spend a lot of time in each other’s company whether you’re riding, jumping or just enjoying a nice rub down. So no one knows better than you when something isn’t quite right with your best buddy. That’s where preventative care, or pre-rehabilitation, comes in.

At Iverson Equine, we encourage you to take the first step in improving your horse’s health and performance with a thorough wellness and performance exam by Dr. Iverson. An irregular gait pattern can put a strain on your horse’s body, leading to pain and possible injuries. And the last thing anyone ever wants is a lame horse, as it hurts them as well as the riders and trainers who love them. Early intervention or correction of any irregularities is the best way to mitigate or even shift behavior before more significant problems arise. Equine rehabilitation especially helps to improve mobility, increase strength and core composition.

Iverson Equine offers a wide range of services to help your horse to feel great and enhance performance:

  • Core Conditioning
  • Class IV laser therapy
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Stability pad training
  • Sensory track
  • Lunging and conditioning (Pro-six and Pessoa)
  • Treadmill exercises
  • Regenerative Therapies
  • TheraPlate vibration sessions

Regenerative therapies can significantly aid in your horse’s recovery from injury. At Iverson Equine we employ Pro-Stride therapy, in which we collect platelet-rich plasma and growth factors that can help stimulate proper healing. It’s a natural therapy which uses your horse’s own blood to heal injuries or ease joint inflammation. Another option is Stem Cell Therapy, which uses undifferentiated cells, in either soft tissue or joint injuries to help promote proper healing. 

Specific services include:

  • Pro-Stride injections
  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections
  • Stem Cell therapies
  • Renovo therapy

After the initial exam, Dr. Iverson and our team here at Iverson Equine, will put together a personalized treatment plan with recommended treatment paths for your horse. Whether your horse is a seasoned athlete, a young aspirational performer or your favorite companion, a healthy horse is a happy horse. That’s why you should develop a relationship with an experienced Equine Rehabilitation Practitioner. 

Dr. Iverson and her team work cooperatively with local veterinarians and share updates on the services she’s providing to your horse, along with medical records with your veterinarian. Schedule a consultation today!
