Benefits of TheraPlate
Bone and Joint Mobility
The TheraPlate is an important part of our program here at Del mar Dressage, all of our horses enjoy standing on it, either pre or post workout. The TheraPlate increases blood flow, bone density and decreases inflammation. It uses zone vortex wave technology (small circular movements) to stimulate the muscles to contract and release as they would during exercise. Since the horse is not moving, the TheraPlate is a zero impact experience. When used at a lower setting it promotes tissue relaxation.
The TheraPlate essentially acts as a pump to increase blood circulation and ATP production around the body. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is a complex organic chemical that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells, e.g. muscle contraction, nerve impulse propagation, and chemical synthesis. Promoting the circulation of ATP is what makes the plate so effective at decreasing healing time for issues like abscess and bone bruise by as much as 50%.
