Infrared irradiation as a therapeutic application?
Infrared irradiation of horse solariums
Many horse farm owners have already discovered the therapeutic effects of infrared radiation long ago and have noticed an improvement in their horse's health in numerous ways. For example, the regular use of light therapy relieves tension in the back area as well as muscle soreness and tension. Due to the expansion of the blood vessels caused by the heat, the blood circulation is improved. Moreover, the sun exposure supplies the deeper-lying tissue with increased blood circulation.
The infrared radiation has an overall beneficial effect on the horse's body. Not only does the vitality of the horse increase, but also its performance is improved. The muscle metabolism is stimulated and the cycle activity increases. This has already been recognised by many breeders who rely on regular light therapy for their broodmares.
