Original Abstract

Electrotherapy is not so commonly used in veterinary practice as in human. Microstimulator is a new electrotherapeutic device designed especially for the horses’ patients. Its unusual configuration of pulse parameters makes this method appropriate for the swelling treatment and tissue regeneration after the minor injuries. Nine horses with swelling of the limb caused by minor injury such as tendinitis, sprains etc. were included in the study. Micro-pulse stimulation was applied once a day until the total regress of problems. The course of the experiment was documented in photographs and video recordings that were significant for evaluation of the effectiveness of micro-pulse stimulation in this application. Based on the results, it seems the micro-pulse stimulation really has positive effect on swelling reduction, and so the overall tissue regeneration, consisting probably in analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.
