Massage and the Arthritic Horse

Massage and the Arthritic Horse

 

In winter it is more important than ever to keep arthritic horses comfortable and pain free. Many people who suffer from arthritis themselves know how the cold weather conditions can cause symptoms of stiffness, and make aching and painful joints worse. Well it is exactly the same for your horses.

Massage is a great way to ease many symptoms of arthritis and improve your horse’s quality of life. Massage has many benefits for improving arthritis, such as it helps to:

  • Increase circulation
  • Improve flexibility and range of movement of joints
  • Release natural pain killing hormones (endorphins)
  • Decrease joint swelling and inflammation
  • Relieves muscle tension

There are also a few useful things that horse owners can do to help, such as:

  • Keep them warm and away from drafts
  • Regular exercise/turnout/leading in hand to reliever and prevent stiffness and increase circulation
  • Give them a joint supplement (preferable ones including MSM and glucosamine)
  • Make sure they have a deep bed with bankings- so if they want to take the weigh off their feet they can do so safely and comfortably
  • Don’t let them become overweight as this puts unnecessary strains on their joints
