What is equine thermography?

Thermography for equine bodywork assessment is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that utilizes infrared technology to measure and visualize temperature variations on the surface of a horse's body. This imaging method provides valuable information about areas of inflammation, circulation, and musculoskeletal issues, aiding in the evaluation and assessment of a horse's overall physical condition.

Frequently Asked Questions

The details you should know

+ Is thermography always appropriate for equine bodywork assessment?

While thermography is a valuable tool, and it's always safe for your horse, it's essential to be mindful of certain factors.

Environmental Factors: Extreme ambient temperatures, such as very hot or cold weather, can affect the accuracy of thermographic readings. It's important to consider environmental conditions during assessments.

Equipment and Technique: Inaccurate results can occur if the thermographic equipment is not calibrated correctly or if the operator lacks proper training and technique.

Clinical Evaluation: Thermography should complement, not replace, a thorough clinical evaluation by a veterinarian or experienced equine bodyworker. It is a valuable tool but should not be the sole basis for diagnosis or treatment decisions.

Medications or Topical Agents: Some medications or topical agents applied to the horse's skin can affect thermographic readings and should be considered when interpreting results.

+ Are there specific regulations regarding the use of thermography in equine bodywork assessment according to FEI rules?

As of now, the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) does not have specific regulations addressing the use of thermography in equine bodywork assessment. However, it's crucial to note that FEI rules and regulations can change. Horse owners and riders should consult with their veterinarians and relevant regulatory bodies to ensure compliance with current rules and to avoid any violations of anti-doping regulations or competition prohibitions.

Thermography is a valuable and generally safe tool for assessing equine bodywork. It provides early detection of issues, offers objective data, and allows for progress monitoring. However, it's important to consider contraindications and stay informed about any applicable regulatory restrictions, especially in competitive equestrian events. Consulting with professionals and staying updated on regulations is key to ensuring its safe and effective use.

+ What's the process for using Thermograpy on my horse?

Here's what you can expect:

1. Initial Consultation: Your horse will go through an initial examination to determine whether thermography is the most appropriate assessment method.

2. Thermographic Imaging: Using state-of-the-art infrared cameras, we capture images of your horse's body. This process is quick and entirely stress-free for the animal.

3. Analysis: Our experts will then analyze the thermal images, identifying any anomalies that could signify underlying issues.

4. Treatment Plan: Based on the thermographic findings, we create a customized treatment plan which may include therapies like massage, cupping, or neuromuscular treatment to address the identified issues.

+ How long does it take to get Thermography results?

The imaging process takes only a few minutes, and analysis can usually be completed within 24 to 48 hours.

+ Is Thermography included in the All-Inclusive Massage and Bodywork Package?
