Laser therapy uses infrared energy that is non-invasive, painless and does not require sedation or anesthesia. Typically 8-12 sessions are recommended (as part of a comprehensive treatment plan) in order to achieve the best results.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_layout_column][cs_element_layout_column _id=”14″ ][cs_element_image _id=”15″ ][/cs_element_layout_column][/cs_element_layout_row][/cs_element_section][cs_element_section _id=”16″ ][cs_element_layout_row _id=”17″ ][cs_element_layout_column _id=”18″ ][cs_element_headline _id=”19″ ][cs_content_seo]Underwater Treadmill (UWTM)\n\nUnderwater treadmill therapy is extremely beneficial for improving strength, endurance, and range of motion. \n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_text _id=”20″ ][cs_content_seo]Hydro-treadmill therapy is primarily used in veterinary patients to enable early return to function and improve muscle strength after limb, neck, or back surgery; or to improve range of motion in compromised joints.

Studies have shown that some of the physiological effects of acupuncture are pain relief, anti-inflammatory effects, antifebrile effects, immunoregulation and the promotion of tissue healing. Clinical trials have shown acupuncture to be effective in the following conditions:\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_icon_list _bp_base=”3_4″][cs_icon_list_item title=”Neurological disorders: intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), facial and radial nerve paralysis.” type=”check” icon_color=”#47c1c6″ link_enabled=”false” link_url=”#” link_new_tab=”false” _bp_base=”3_4″]Neurological disorders: intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), facial and radial nerve paralysis.[/cs_icon_list_item][cs_icon_list_item title=”Musculoskeletal problems: back pain, muscle soreness, degenerative joint disease, and osteoarthritis.” type=”check” icon_color=”#47c1c6″ link_enabled=”false” link_url=”#” link_new_tab=”false” _bp_base=”3_4″]Musculoskeletal problems: back pain, muscle soreness, degenerative joint disease, and osteoarthritis.[/cs_icon_list_item][cs_icon_list_item title=”Other chronic conditions: geriatric weakness, cancer, and hospice care.” type=”check” icon_color=”#47c1c6″ link_enabled=”false” link_url=”#” link_new_tab=”false” _bp_base=”3_4″]Other chronic conditions: geriatric weakness, cancer, and hospice care.[/cs_icon_list_item][/cs_icon_list][cs_element_text _id=”32″ ][cs_content_seo]Generally, a minimum of 3-5 treatments, 1-2 weeks apart for chronic conditions is needed before one can expect notable improvement.

TENS stimulates the sensory nerves, suppressing the pain signals that are being sent to the brain to give the user relief. In other words, TENS “tricks” the brain to ignore the pain for a short duration of time by applying a non-painful stimulus to the same area. \n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_layout_column][cs_element_layout_column _id=”47″ ][cs_element_image _id=”48″ ][/cs_element_layout_column][/cs_element_layout_row][/cs_element_section][cs_element_section _id=”49″ ][cs_element_layout_row _id=”50″ ][cs_element_layout_column _id=”51″ ][cs_element_headline _id=”52″ ][cs_content_seo]PEMF\n\nPulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_text _id=”53″ ][cs_content_seo]PEMF therapy is a non-invasive treatment modality that pulses electromagnetic fields in body tissues to speed and promote healing. In humans, PEMF devices are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat certain bone fractures and to treat plantar fasciitis, post-operative pain and edema, and arthritis. This modality is being utilized more and more in veterinary medicine as well for inflammation and arthritis, bone fractures, pain, edema, and to promote chronic wound healing. We utilize this therapy at the clinic and your doctor may also prescribe treatment options for your pet to use at home.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_layout_column][cs_element_layout_column _id=”54″ ][cs_element_image _id=”55″ ][/cs_element_layout_column][/cs_element_layout_row][/cs_element_section][/cs_content]
