Electromagnetic field therapy

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) is generated by running an electircal current through a coiled wire to generate low level electrical fields in the body to aid in tissue repair, pain relief and relaxation.

PEMF stimulates biological processes and has been shown to have a positive effect on bone and cartilage in pets. It has been used for many conditions but it's main uses in small animals are pain management and enhancement of bone, cartilage and tissue healing.  As such, a common application is pain reduction and improvement in cartilage quality of pets with osteoarthritis.  Other indications include: fracture healing, muscle spasm or pain, inflammation, swelling, wound healing and neurological conditions.

PEMF can be delivered to the pet by the use of a mat which the patient lies upon during treatment sessions, or via a targeted home use system such as the Assisi Loop. Because of the relaxation afforded by PEMF, many pets are readily drawn to the mat and seek out its biological effects.

Paws in Motion carries Assisi loop tPEMF for home use in pets, and these are available for hire or purchase to our clients.

Pain management

Whilst your veterinary surgeon will prescribe a variety of medication to alleviate pain; physiotherapy allows us to combine several manual techniques and modalities to modulate pain.

Aging gracefully and chronic conditions

Aging gracefully and chronic conditions

Massage therapy, heat therapy, acu-laser and electromagnetic field therapy are very therapeutic, especially for our geriatric pets that need that extra care as they age gracefully.
