Rehabilitation for pets is comparable to physical therapy for humans and offers many of the same benefits. If your pet is arthritic, on long-term pain medication, has undergone orthopedic surgery, or just seems to be “slowing down” due to age, he or she could benefit greatly from rehabilitation therapy.
Acupuncture is indicated for functional problems such as those that involve paralysis, noninfectious inflammation (such as allergies), and pain. For small animals, musculoskeletal problems, respiratory problems, skin issues, gastrointestinal problems and some reproductive problems are some of the general conditions which may be treated with acupuncture.
Laser therapy reduces pain, reduces inflammation and increases blood supply to speed healing with no known side effects and is used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, numerous dermatological problems and pain. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, the laser has been shown to provide relief and speed healing.
Dependent on what is being treated, you should expect to see near immediate results for superficial problems and results after 6-12 treatments for deep tissue problems.
