The benefits of cold therapy include pain relief, muscle spasm reduction, decrease in inflammation, and maintenance of normal blood flow to the limb. Cold therapy helps keep equine joints tight and healthy and helps maintain soundness. Ice should never be used directly on the animal due to possible freezing of the tissues.
The application of cold by using Professional's Choice specially designed, compressive ice boots to a horse's joint or lower leg is preferable as it reduces potential damage to the leg skin and horny foot tissues that can occur after long periods of standing in ice water.
The design of these ice boots is what makes them so special. The outer material is limestone-based neoprene, an insulator that helps hold and maintain the cold longer and won't absorb moisture. On the inside, the multiple elastic pockets allow customized therapy. These pockets eliminate the trauma caused by putting ice directly on the horse's skin because the cold slowly permeates the elastic, allowing the horse to gradually feel the cold.
