infrared heat radiation

Both you and your horse are athletes and should take care of your bodies as such. Products from Back on Track can help support joints and muscles and keep you and your horse active and comfortable. These products generate infrared heat radiation, which increases blood flow, helping to relieve sore muscles while decreasing chances of injury.  Back on Track makes their products with textiles that have ceramic particles fused into the fibers. When these fabrics are worn, the body heats up the fabric and the ceramic particles radiate that heat back onto the person or animal wearing it.
