Abstract

The current study aimed to determine the effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) on equine rectus abdominis using surface electromyography (sEMG) and ultrasonographic muscle thickness evaluation. Five horses were trained with NMES for 12 weeks; muscle thickness and sEMG evaluations...

Abstract

Electrical stimulation is commonly used as a modality for physical therapy in human and veterinary medicine. However, studies measuring the movement generated by electrical stimulation in horses are rare. The present study therefore evaluates the range of movement provoked by a commercially...

AbstractFull Text

Electrotherapy devices used for rehabilitation provide an electrical current that activates sensory and motor neurons to reduce pain and improve tissue repair after injury or surgery. For most equine applications, neuromuscular electrical stimulators (NMES) are the most appropriate devices. NMES...

Abstract

Functional electrical stimulation (FES) has proven to be advantageous in reducing muscle hypertonicity and reeducating muscle memory in the human population and has recently been used in horses. Six horses ranging in age from 10 to 17 years were selected for the study. Still photographs and...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is used to increase or maintain muscle strength during rehabilitation. Human studies investigating different protocols show that some treatments induce changes in muscle characteristics. Despite the frequent use of NMES in ...

Abstract

Background: Early results from the use of neuromodulation by percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation for the management of trigeminal-mediated headshaking in horses were promising but lacked sufficient case numbers and long-term follow-up. The neuromodulatory procedure has since been established...

Abstract

A retrospective study of 241 clinical cases, utilising over 1,800 functional electrical stimulation (FES) treatments to alleviate epaxial muscle spasms, showed that almost 80% (191) of the horses had a 1-grade improvement in muscle spasms after 2 FES treatments, based on the Modified Ashworth Scale ...
