Compression Bandages: A Game-Changer for Equine Leg Health
Equine leg health is essential for maintaining peak performance and preventing injuries in sport horses. Compression bandages provide targeted support to tendons and ligaments, reduce swelling, and promote proper circulation.
Key Benefits of Compression Bandages
- Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation: Compression bandages help prevent common leg injuries such as windpuffs, tendon strains, and stocking up. They also play a critical role in rehabilitating injured horses, promoting faster recovery and a return to competition.
- Trailering and Travel Support: Long journeys can be stressful for horses, causing leg swelling and discomfort. Compression wraps offer much-needed support during transportation, keeping legs cool and protected.
- Everyday Training Support: Compression bandages can be used during daily training to provide consistent support and prevent strain on tendons and ligaments.
