The Electrotherapy Guide is geared up toward new graduates, students, or the experienced physiotherapist who might just want to keep this guide handy for reference whilst out and about treating horses. 


PVP has compiled a guide to help steer you through the various modalities available; what they can be used for, and which settings would be appropriate. This guide contains the most commonly used settings, treatment times, and the calculations used to formulate treatment plans. 


Modalities currently included;


PEMFT (Pulse Electromagnetic Field Therapy)

NMES (Neuromuscular Electrostimulation) 

Ultrasound (Longwave and Shortwave)

LASER (Class 3b and 4)

Low Level LASER Therapy (Infrared, Visible Red and Blue Light)

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)




This guide is available as a laminated A5 pocket book (ideal for keeping in your bag/car) and as an unlaminated A5 guide (more suitable for home/classroom). 


Discount available for students from The Open College of Equine Studies.
