Equine Transeva Technique
Equine Transeva Technique (ETT)
Equine Transeva Technique (ETT) offers a unique approach in the assessment and correction of musculoskeletal injuries in the horse. When used routinely, it can help improve muscle efficiency, enhance performance and reduce the risk
The Winks Green (WG) Transeva, using an electrical current, stimulates muscles into rhythmic contractions via their motor neuron, allowing incorrect muscle function to be pin-pointed and then precisely restored back to normal. Using the handheld electrode, the muscle is re-educated; restoring efficiency, function and movement. The WG Transeva promotes free circulation and creates the best possible conditions for the healing of damaged tissues.
Horses are athletes, and with regular bodywork we are able to reduce the risk of injuries and enable them to Perfom at their optimum.
The WG Transeva was developed by building on the works of renowned British equine physiologist, Sir Charles
Strong, and dates back to 1939 when the first serious consideration was given to the possibility of applying this
technique to horses. The works of Sir Charles Strong were passed on to his apprentice- Winks Green, who built on
his works to create the Winks Green Transeva.
The Effects of The Transeva
Muscle elasticity –irritability and contractibility (i.e. muscle tone) are rapidly returned to normal.
An increase of blood is brought to the muscle and to the neighbouring tissue with all attendant beneficial physiological chemical consequences.
Waste tissue products are rapidly cleaned away and stagnation of lymph, with its serious consequences, is prevented.
A large supply of oxygen and nourishment is brought to the injured part.
Rapid absorption of fluid and extravasted blood and lymph is actively promoted.
Beneficial chemical and physical changes take place after exercise.
The movement of muscle do not allow the organosation of lymph to take place between their surfaces and thus the dangers of adhesions are minimised.
As the movements do much to prevent the stagnation of lymph in areolar tissue in the joint interspaces, the danger of areolar tissue losing suppleness and flexibility, so necessary for joint action, is diminished.
In the later stages of sprains, or if treatment has been long delayed, and adhesions have formed in the muscles and periarticular tissue, the adherent surfaces are gently and gradually separated by causing increasingly powerful contractions of the muscles .
Muscles are prevented from wasting, particularly if treatment is given soon after injury. Wasted muscles however soon increase in bulk after treatment.
No attempt is to be made to cut short the process of inflammation but simply to guide and control the process.
