Poll Tension Management
Poll tension is a common management issue in horses - especially performance horses. There are many possible origins of tension which are beyond the scope of this article.
Most common symptoms of poll tension are:
Poll tension often appears as a result of the imbalance somewhere else in the horse. Imagine your horse’s motion as a wave that starts in the hind end and flows through the entire body and neck. You will notice that the poll is the point at which the wave ends. Interruptions at any point along the movement line will ultimately have an effect on the poll. Since your horse’s body works in a way to strive for balance, tight poll muscles can be a secondary issue. It is a red flag for a problem that started somewhere else. The poll area looks relatively small compared to the complete structure of the horse but it plays an important role to the horse's freedom and ease of movement.
How can the Equine Red Light Therapy Poll Cap help?
The Poll Cap is designed to provide a valuable aid in the management of poll tension. Main reason is the strategic placement of the red and infrared LEDs over the acupuncture points, trigger points and common areas of tension throughout the head. Light Therapy is known for its rapid ability to open up circulation, reduce inflammation, increase collagen and ATP production, and release endorphins. All of which offer significant healing benefits for poll tension.
A session of 15 to 20 minutes should be enough to provide sufficient therapeutic dose of light energy. Rest assured that no harm can be done if the cap is left on for longer periods of time as the body will only absorb what it needs.
Daily use is recommended when there is a pre-existing issue in the Poll. Otherwise use on an “as needed” basis. Use it best as a pre-exercise treatment or after the horse has cooled down from a work out. Red light treatments are being well acclaimed as an effective pre- and post- performance aid for racing and competition horses.
