Subzero Cryotherapy utilizes CO2 at -110 °F (-78C) at very high pressure to deliver very targeted and extremely effective treatment. The treatment time is short and can produce immediate pain relief in your horse’s joints, including the hock, stifle, back, foot, pastern, and fetlock. Subzero cryotherapy reduces inflammation that can sometimes hinder movement and improve the range of motion in the legs’ tendons and ligaments.

Many equine veterinarians that practice natural horse care use joint supplements and horse liniments, in conjunction with cryotherapy, to provide a more holistic and drug-free treatment option. Compared to an ice boot or ice bath, targeted Subzero Cryotherapy treatment offers immediate results.

When aimed directly at the injured or inflamed areas, there is an immediate reduction in tissue temperature. This reduction triggers an internal response that increases circulation, slows nerve conduction, and alters sensory receptors, ultimately reducing inflammation and managing pain. Subzero cryotherapy can also repair cellular damage that occurs with swelling and help prevent further damage.

Treatments for laminitis or founder in horses have been the focus of research studies. One particular study explored the use of Subzero cryotherapy applied directly to the hoof. The results showed an instant decrease at the hoof wall to a therapeutic level that, in turn, resulted in pain relief for the horse. Cryotherapy is proven to be useful in the prevention of other equine conditions.
