What is equine rehabilitation?

Horses with injuries and other physical aliments can receive services to heal and support their bodies. These equine athletes will enjoy benefits, such as conditioning without stressing the joints and tendons, increased blood circulation, better range of movement, and improved attitude.

The methods extend past the usual stall rest and involve innovative therapies. Some would compare these services to physical therapy for a person.
