Equine Sports Medicine

At Manning Equine, we strive to remain at the forefront of equine sports medicine, prevention and rehabilitation.  We provide many sports therapies and treatments to our clients, helping their equine partners stay in the best performance condition possible.

I.R.A.P. Therapy

I.R.A.P., or Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein, is a gene therapy which uses the horse’s biological anti-inflammatory protein (IL-1 receptor antagonist) to block the binding of Interleukin-1 proteins to the surface of the tissues in a joint, causing intra-articular inflammation (degradation of cartilage and decreasing the production of cartilage matrix) and resulting in progression of osteoarthritis.  Blood is drawn aseptically from the horse, incubated for 24 hours and the serum containing these anti-inflammatory mediators is harvested and divided into single dose syringes and frozen for future use.  I.R.A.P. is then administered through intra-articular injections every 7-10 days for a usual course of three treatments.  I.R.A.P. is a great maintenance therapy that can reduce the amount of steroid use or can be used in conjunction with routine joint injections throughout the competitive season.  

Platelet Rich Plasma PRP TherapyPlatelet Rich Plasma (P.R.P.) Therapy

P.R.P. therapy is a regenerative therapy that uses the horse’s own platelets to assist in the healing process of tendon and ligament injuries or joint problems.  Blood is collected aseptically from the horse and spun in a special centrifuge that concentrates and separates out the platelets.  The P.R.P. is then injected directly into the injured area.  We have been providing this treatment for the past few years and are very encouraged with the results.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell TherapyThis therapy uses the bodies own stem cells to repair and naturally regenerate tissue that has been damaged.  Stem cell therapy is usually used in equine tendon and ligament injuries.  This therapy does include a minor surgical procedure where stem cells are extracted from the injured horse’s bone marrow (performed under sedation and local anaesthesia).  The sample is then sent to a laboratory where it will be cultured for approximately 2-3 weeks to increase cell numbers and sent back to the veterinarian for implantation.  Using ultrasound guidance, the veterinarian implants the cells into the site of the injury, or lesion, for regeneration and then rehabilitation can begin. It is important to note that Stem Cell Therapy is used to improve the quality of the end result rather than reducing rehabilitation time.

Equine Shockwave Therapy Manning Equine VetShockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is used to treat equine musculoskeletal disorders, both soft tissue and bone.  The treatment is usually performed on the horse under mild sedation, and while the procedure lasts only 10-20 minutes, Shockwave therapy is usually carried out in a series of 3-4 treatments 2-3 weeks apart.

Tildren

Available only through the Emergency Drug Release program, Tildren is a biophosphate drug which treatments are administered intravenously and are used to promote calcium binding, slowing down the progression of degenerative joint disease and assisting in the healing of a variety of equine boney ailments.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is an alternative treatment that helps to promote healing, reduce edema and reduce pain for both acute and chronic conditions.  Using the Multi Radiance MR4 ACTIVet system that combines the synergetic influence of 4 electromagnetic radiances, laser therapy offers results with a less invasive procedure.
