Drop off is generally between 8AM and 9AM. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays physical therapy patients can also be dropped off between 7:00-7:30AM if prearranged.
Of course! Please discuss with Sarah, our physical therapist, and she will work with you to find the right time for your schedule and ours.
Laser therapy has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions.
Aquatic Bioelectric Whirlpool
- Have an acute injury (sprains, strains).
- Are recovering from orthopedic surgery (knees, hips, elbows, shoulders, etc.).
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
- Any type of chronic pain.
How does it work?
The high-energy sound waves stimulate cells and release healing growth factors in the body that reduce inflammation and swelling, increase blood flow, help bones to form and heal, and enhance wound healing.
What can be treated with the VersaTron4Paws technology?
Backed by more than a decade of clinical research, shock wave can be used to reduce lameness, improve mobility, and relieve pain in dogs with: Osteoarthritis, Tendon/ligament injuries, Wounds, Bone Fractures, Back Pain, Shoulder Instability, and more.
Shock wave is noninvasive so it can be used in these conditions as an alternative to surgery, instead of increased non-steroidal pharmaceuticals, or as part of a rehab plan.
By emitting bursts of micro current electricity, the Assisi Loop creates a field which evenly penetrates both soft and hard body tissue around the target area. This electromagnetic field causes a chemical cascade, which activates the Nitric Oxide cycle. Nitric Oxide is a key molecule in healing.
The Loop increases Nitric Oxide production to help speed healing of soft and hard tissues-that includes skin, tendons, ligaments, bones and organs. The specific ratio of frequency to burst width used by the Loop has been found to be the most effective at delivering the amount of current that is similar to what is already used by the body. More is not always better, and too much Nitric Oxide production can actually slow healing. When choosing a PEMF device, it is good to know that more power is not correlated with faster healing.
In general, tPEM can be used to speed healing, reduce inflammation, and lower pain levels. For any kind of orthopedic injury or surgery, the Loop is a great tool to use in the recovery stage. The field penetrates fur, bandages, and casts to reach all the tissue in the target area.
Stance Analyzer & Goniometry and Thigh Girth Measurements
Goniometry and thigh girth measurements can be taken periodically to measure progress in a physical therapy program. Goniometry measures the range of motion of a joint allowing the veterinary professional to monitor progress or the progression of a disease. Thigh girth measurements allow us to measure and monitor muscle mass. Muscle mass correlates with muscle strength.
