When we first rolled out Cytowave, our focus on was tendon and ligament tears within the racing crowd. Yes, we made an impact with our noninvasive treatment with racing trainers because it helped to get horses back on the track, healthier, in a much shorter time frame.
What we weren't prepared for was being embraced by the Dressage and Hunter/Jumper communities as a maintenance tool to keep their horses healthy. That bears repeating; we can keep horses from getting injured if used as a proactive modality.
We have a number of competitors who use Cytowave for back treatments before and after workouts to keep them limber before their workouts and to take away inflammation after a workout. Of course, by dealing with the aches, pains and inflammation that athletes have, your keeping ahead of problems like micro fractures developing because of overheated tissue.
“Using Cytowave treatment helps our staff and trainers promote natural healing of lesions, and strengthens soft tissue fibers to prevent future damage for our horses,” said Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms co-owner and Operations Manager Nadine Anderson. “Using Cytowave let’s us really take a proactive approach in every horse’s health through a healing pace giving them ample time to rest and rehabilitate from injury and inflammation,” Anderson said.
And of course, the pendulum has swung back to the racing trainers who are now embracing Cytowave as a maintenance tool and not waiting for an injury.
