Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation

5M Equine Performance Center and has been serving as equine rehab facility sing fall of 2019.  We had one clear vision in mind, and that was to provide state-of-the art care for athletic horses whether rehabilitating from injury or recovering between competitions. All horses in our program recieve the same care as if they were in a top-level show barn with careful attention to their physical and mental well-being.

Dr.Jennifer Clarke, our resident veterinarian and co-founder, creates an individualized exercise program for each horse based on their specific needs and the owner’s goals. She also provides on-site veterinary services and is available for consultation.

Water Treadmill

Our water treadmill is a wonderful adjunctive therapy to many rehabilitation or fitness programs. We can adjust the speed, water level, incline, and training time to suit the horse and we can adjust these variables as the horse progresses in their program. The water treadmill is excellent for developing topline, increasing core strength, symmetrical muscle development, improving range of motion, and increasing proprioception (horse’s awareness of limb placement).

Benefits

  • Topline development
  • Improved core strength 
  • Symmetrical muscle development
  • Increased range of motion
  • Improved proprioception
  • Cardiovascular exercise without speed or concussion 

Equine Cold Saltwater Spa

The spa uses saltwater (epsom salts and water) chilled to approximately 38 degrees Fahrenheit to cool the horse’s legs, and air jets provide gentle pressure and massage. It is great for reducing swelling and inflammation which is crucial in acute injuries and after strenuous work. The saltwater has an osmositic effect on wounds, helping them dry out and heal faster.

Benefits

  • Superior cooling
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Pain Relief
  • Improved wound healing
  • Reduces swelling
