ECB Leg Spa
Cold Salt Hydrotherapy
The ECB Leg Spa is a cold salt hydrotherapy unit to prevent and treat lower leg injuries.
The hyper-cooled salt water reduces inflammation, numbs pain and slows down the degeneration of damaged tissues, encouraging the body’s natural healing processes to operate more efficiently.
The salt concentration also reduces swelling, conditions the skin tissues and increases water density, which intensifies the effect of the cold water. The water is pumped with jets of air, which have a massaging effect that stimulates tissues and relaxes the horse. Aeration of the water at low temperature also significantly increases the concentration of oxygen, which enriches the healing process.
As the legs gradually re-warm following each treatment, the blood flow gently increases to the affected area(s). The salt solution is soothing and acts as a hypertonic poultice, also reducing heat the limbs as well as having a natural healing effect on wounds and skin.
Spa therapy can help treat injured tendons, ligaments, shins, hooves, wounds, cuts and bruises. The spa can also be used on a regular basis as a preventative measure for reducing the risk of injuries.
