“I have been aware of the therapeutic value of pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) for musculoskeletal injuries for some time, but recently I had the opportunity to utilize this product for another type of injury: A well-bred long yearling colt was cast under a pipe fence and got both knees badly scaped as he struggled to get up. Healing was slow at some point his right knee got infected. For many months the knee remained swollen, with intermittent pus drainage. At some point, it was suggested that HealFast Therapy may be of benefit, based on the efficacy of PEMF in treating ulcers, wounds and bed sores. As there are no known adverse side-effects to prolonged use of this low power PEMF, a 12 cm loop unit was properly applied over light bandaging of the right knee, and was then covered with protective bandaging. After one week of continuous use, the knee was unwrapped. The unit's tiny red light was still on. Two new holes of pus drainage were present and the swelling of the knee was significantly reduced. Color of superficial tissue appeared less dark than prior to use of HealFast.
The wound was cleaned and the same treatment was applied repeatedly for 2 weeks. Late into his second year, this valuable colt was started under saddle. I would strongly recommend considering HealFast Therapy for the treatment of various equine injuries as per the manufacturer's recommendation. This is a versatile, simple to use and very cost effective PEMF unit.
