readytorodeo - 2013-11-09 8:26 AM The Theraplate will help. It causes the muscles to contract and then they release. Speeds blood flow also. Inflamation also.
How does muscle contraction help with disolving scar tissue? ETA: sorry didn't see Trickster had already asked that question

Scar tissue is right and thick. ย The stretching and contracting action of the Theraplate will help dissolve the scar tissue. ย Plus it relaxes the muscles. ย And with the increase of blood flow it helps injuries to heal. ย I have used it on scar tissue on my own mare and have seen a decrease in the scar tissue and increase of flexibility and stride. ย 

so you don't know.

I'm not saying it will or it won't and I happen to own a TP(long story but I got tired of arguing about it) but have offered zero clinical or practical explanations of how or why it will work.


Nothing but brochure claims and anecdotal evidence. What Trickster is/was trying to point out is if you are going to pimp something you need to know how, why and for what it will work.

Not trying to pimp anything. I own one. I know what it has done for my mare. If you don't like yours or are not satisfied with it, then sell it. I'm not going to argue with you. This thread is getting ridiculous and there is no need to attack people, because you don't agree with them. This is the reason a lot of people won't post on here.

I'm far from attacking you. I simply asked for some form of quantifiable proof or evidence of the claims you are/were making.

If you want to get right down to it, I would make the assertion that your unsubstantiated claims are far more egregious than my asking for proof of such claims.

I know what results I have seen with my mare. I know it works. If you want the scientific proof, then call the company. They will be happy to provide the data. If you did not see any results then I'm sorry . I use it in conjunction with the respond laser. Every horse is different. If I didn't believe in it, believe me I wouldn't have one and I sure wouldn't get up early and put her on it before I go to work.

The company is not the one on this web site that is claiming the product will cure everything from brain cancer to syphilis, you are.


And the fact that you can not or will not recognize how irresponsible those claims are is amazing to me.

Heck, I enjoy a good scotch a couple of two or three times a week, and anecdotal evidence supports, that it in fact does make me a genius and a fantastic lover. But it would be irresponsible of me to suggest that others do the same and that they will see the same results.



eta: Before you, RTR, or anyone else accuses me of being a big ole meany poopy head. Being that this is an electronic medium and there is no way to express tone or emotion. I am not being mean, just attempting to make a point.

 I'm not saying that.  I'm just know what worked for my mare.  If you don't like it, I'm sorry.  Sounds like to me you have something against the Theraplate or laser.  Everybody is entitled to their opinion.  The OP wanted opinions, I gave mine, your entitled to yours.  I don't have time or want to argue with stupid people.

I'm not claiming anything. Theraplate works and so does the respond laser. Every horse is different, what works on one won't work on Another. I have had good results with both. The OP wanted an opinion. I gave mine and you are free to give yours. You wanted the scientific data, I told you where to get it. Sorry you didn't have results. But you have to be willing to take the time to use it. And I have proof, my vet. Now go have you that drink and chill out.

Ok- one more, than I promise I'll stay out of your road and let you carry on. ย 
A fibrotic myopathy is a wad of scar tissue- it is not a muscle, blood flow can not enter it. ย Even though the Theraplate can cause muscles to contract and release, (muscles contract to resist vibration, and then release when the vibration stops, which causes blood flow to begin to circulate back into the tissues that had been held in contraction), it won't affect the scar tissue at all. ย Which is why surgery, or shock-wave is used to break up the adhesion. ย This is good to follow up (always) with laser therapy.

eta: ย to the OP, you asked for opinions on the Theraplate and scar tissue- I have given you mine, and also tried to steer you away from some misinformation. ย Honestly, if you want to try the Theraplate, just try it- don't come on asking for opinions and then get crabby when they are offered.

K- that's it- I will say no more!


ย 

ย guess i dont understand where im getting crabby? Ok? I also asked about shockwave, which is something ive looked at as a possibility. I was in no way shape or form gettimg crabby or defensive. I stated in my original post about opinions on both. If theraplate wont benefit my mare than im not going to waste my time. Id rather haul her down to a vet and do shockwave if that is something that will be the best for her.

 I have never used Shockwave.  My mare had scar tissue.  The Theraplate did help break it up.  My vet reccomended it.  It has helped my mare.  Again every horse is different .  I gave you my opinion and have  been called uneducated and told that I didn't know what I was doing.  Don't understand why some people get on here and attack people verbally.

I wish people where not so touchie on here. I know what theraplate is but do not understand how it works, i understand and have read studies on the laser. But themtheraplate make me think about the thing theynsold in the 60's for weight loss with the vibration thing and strap around your rear. I quietly stood on whatever brand that was at the world and i,have ra was hurting stood on machine for the 10 minutes justmfelt a little relax. Just cant understand concept. They had posted where they had done studies on theraplate but did not have then there. One of my friends did the same thing and she said she really did not feel different. I see the studies on the back on track and magnets have been around for,a llong time and some horses like them and some dont. I put some hock magnetic boots on him and he went crazy never expected that took 4 people to,get those boots off.

My trainer has one and she is doing a study and will have actual results on a horse with a torn suspensory. The horse was ultrasounded and showed the hole. He has been treated on the Theraplate and will go back to the vet to be ultasounded again Nov 19. Results of this type are verified by a vet. She will have more than just this one study but has not has the Theraplate long.

She will be set up at the Gobbleup the Cash in Marshall TX so you can form your own opinion. She bought a human one and a massager. Personally, that foot thing was feeling pretty good can't speak for the horse.

 this may be off topic as i forgot what the original question exactly was however, i have been having trouble with my knees hurting and feeling really stiff, when i got to Perry and with all the riding and walking it really put a damper on them, i got on the Theraplate, the 2 x 2 for 20 minutes for a few days, what a difference it made, i dont know all the logistics and analogy for it, all i knew was i was able to walk and nearly run with no problems, my folks had a hard time keeping up with me..i bought it and it now resides in my living room and i love it....

I don't know enough about this to say whether or not it works.  My guess is it probably does make some horses feel better, but I think it's probably a stretch to say that it helps to "dissolve" scar tissue.  That's a little along the lines of a diet pill that dissolves fat....a so-called "fat burning" pill.  There is no such thing.

After my horrific experience with razer shoes, I need at least two years of proof/evidence and no major side effects before I will try an alternative therapy like this. 

My two cents is shockwave is very different than theraplate.  I have had shockwave done on Grasshopper and if Lilly was a candidate for it from her surgery she would be getting it done too.

Some things I can go along with without some serious concrete eveidence but sometimes I need a lot more proof.  This is one of those times.  For now, the lazer, hydrotherapy, and PHT magnets will have to do (yes I do believe in alternative therapies, just not all of them).
