We have been using Rodney’s TENS unit [Rodney’s Week] on his neck.
He loved it on his back. I put it directly across the scar tissue [Daddy Dearest] and cranked the machine as high as it would go. Rodney’s back would jerk & twitch. Rodney would stand with a goopy look on his face.
He’s less fond of it on his neck. We run it a low level. He tolerates it. By now he’s resigned to the crazy people doing weird shit to him.
It seems to be de-kinking his neck. Time will tell.
This was group progress. I decided Rodney was favoring his neck, either chronically or from when he whacked his head [Reference Photos]. My medical advisor came up with the methodology and customized electrodes that would conform better to the neck.
Here’s a link to a company that uses what I think is a similar idea, EquiNew LLC. This is not the device we use. We have no tie to this company. I post it FYI, including a PDF of a sponsored fact sheet from TheHorse.Com. (Is “sponsored fact sheet” the new term for advertisement?)
The bad kind of zap involves shock therapy from a blanket. [Zap!]
Have you used any electrical therapies on horse or self? Results?
